Enablence Pushes GPON
"The ITU G.984 GPON standard-compliant ONT-G888 joins our IEEE GE-PON and Point-to-Point standards-compliant ONT-E888 as part of our ONT lineup specific to Multiple Dwelling Units (MDU) applications," explained Arvind Chhatbar, CEO for Enablence. "Multiple Dwelling Units, such as residential apartment buildings, are a big part of fiber-to-the-home networks. Enablence has always believed in developing products specific to these MDU applications, which may be managed as one unit, rather than providing makeshift solutions where multiple single family or business ONTs are bundled together."
In a separate release:
OTTAWA -- Enablence Technologies Inc. ("Enablence")(TSX VENTURE:ENA - News), a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) equipment for residential and business services, announced today the addition of the ONT-E1321i series Optical Network Terminals ("ONTs") to its industry leading TRIDENT7(TM) product line. The ONT-E1321i series ONT is now generally available and shipping to customers.
The ONT-E1321i series of triple-play indoor ONTs is fully compliant with the IEEE 802.3 GE-PON (EFM PON) and Point-to-Point optical access standards. By providing multiple triple-play ports, this ONT extends well beyond the applications afforded by previous indoor ONTs. The design also allows the direct connection of various triple-play devices, such as POTS telephones and RF video set top boxes, while multiple data ports eliminate the need for external switches or routers for small home networks. The ports provided include a Gigabit Ethernet port, three Ethernet ports, two POTS ports, and one optional RF video port all in an aesthetic consumer electronics form. Enablence's patented integrated RF return is also available as an option, which supports RF return over the same single fiber as all other services without additional wavelengths.
"We developed the ONT-E1321i as part of our strategic effort to promote worldwide deployment of our TRIDENT7(TM) product suite", explained Arvind Chhatbar, Enablence's CEO. "European network operators typically prefer to deploy ONTs inside the customer premise, in contrast to North American network operators who typically prefer to deploy ONTs outside. The ONT-E1321i allows us to fulfill this specific demand of the European market by providing an ONT rich in triple-play capability."
