TXP Touts ONT for GPON IPTV

RICHARDSON, Texas -- TXP Corporation (OTCBB: TXPO - News), an Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) for the telecommunications industry, has introduced the first of its standards-compliant RF return capable Optical Network Terminals (ONT), giving service providers a practical solution for delivering video and television services to residential customers over GPON while maintaining backward compatibility with existing set-top boxes (STB).

TXP’s RF return implementation is compliant with FSAN standards for three-wavelength GPON deployments, as well as SCTE 55-1 and 55-2 standards that support STBs from the two major brands – Motorola and Scientific-Atlanta. TXP has proven interoperability with 16 OLT platforms and is capable of working with any standards-based OLT. This broad-ranging interoperability, coupled with RF return and all supported through a common software load, makes TXP ONTs almost universally deployable.

“Backwards compatibility with existing set-top boxes is a major concern for telcos contemplating GPON deployments, which is why TXP closely followed all the relevant standards in our implementation of RF return,” said Joel Futterman, General Manager of TXP’s ONT Solutions Group. “This capability in optical network terminals opens the door for wide-ranging deployment of interactive video services over GPON without the need to replace thousands of existing set-top boxes.”
