Alcatel-Lucent expands GPON portfolio

Offers service providers with more options when extending fibre to multiple dwelling units and single family homes

By CBR Staff Writer

Alcatel-Lucent has expanded its portfolio of gigabit passive optical network (GPON)-based optical network terminals (ONTs), with the addition of eight new models.

The company claims that the new models allows them to respond to service providers’ specific ONT-requests and support their time-to-market objectives when deploying fiber-based networks. These present service providers with more options when extending fibre to multiple dwelling units (MDUs) and single family homes.

In addition, as part of the announcement the company also offers indoor models with integrated residential gateway and Wi-Fi features.

Dave Geary, president of wireline networks activities at Alcatel-Lucent, said: “Alcatel-Lucent continues to innovate in the GPON space, encouraging the adoption of fiber-to-the-home by breaking down interoperability barriers and deployment challenges.

“A couple of months ago, we announced a first important initiative to realise this vision, by sharing our OMCI specifications with other vendors. In the meantime, Alcatel-Lucent has been furthering this effort by incorporating in its products the OMCI implementer’s guide version-2, a standards-based OMCI for GPON networks.”
