Features and Benefits:

Passive Optical Network

  • Passive element is stable, easy to maintain without failure.
  • All-Optical has high bandwidth and great potential for bandwidth upgrade in the future, which is the development trend of bearer network.
  • Simple Network, load balancing and end-to-end network management for easy maintenance.

High Performance

  • The platform adopts all-optical network, which has large bandwidth capacity for carrying multiple services. It has good expansibility and network upgrade space, which is in line with the network development trend.
  • Large bandwidth, the maximum bandwidth of a single user can reach 2500Mbps.
  • One fiber carrying multiple services, supporting voice, video, security, Internet and other services.

High Reliability

  • Support type B protection, backup and disaster recovery protection for PON port.
  • Power redundancy and dual uplink routing to avoid single point of network failure.
  • IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) provides rapid spanning tree convergence independent of spanning tree timers and also offers the benefit of Layer 2 load balancing and distributed processing.
  • IEEE802.3AD Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) provides multiple links binding to achieve uplink backup.


  • The platform provides end-to-end QoS guarantees. Through the comprehensive application of congestion management, priority marking, queue scheduling and traffic rate limiting/shaping, it can meet the user's service quality requirements and create a high-quality network for customers.
  • Service quality guarantee: Based on the IEEE 802.1p protocol, different service class CoS (Class of Service) values are set according to different service types, and differentiated priority processing methods are provided to improve the network quality index such as delay time, jitter, and packet loss rate. Different traffic classifications have different priorities, and different queues such as SP (Strict Priority) and WRR (Weighted Round Robin) are used to perform queue scheduling of data flows for improving the services quality.
  • Bandwidth guarantee: User bandwidth is guaranteed by the application of DBA (Dynamic Bandwidth Assignment) mechanism and the traffic rate limiting/shaping function. Generally, the VoIP service is set to a fixed bandwidth, the IPTV and video services are set to ensure bandwidth, and the high-speed Internet service is set to the maximum bandwidth. The data stream is limited and shaped by a plurality of line templates to ensure bandwidth guarantee.

Quick Installation and Deployment

  • Automatic data configuration and delivery, fast service opening.
  • Low-energy equipment to save energy, reduce emissions and protect the environment.

Easy Maintenance

  • The whole process of passive optical connection makes the network topology stable and reliable, and the fault point is greatly reduced. The network management system can directly manage the user ports of the ONT, provide end-to-end QoS service guarantees for the entire network, and implement end-to-end network management, which reduces the pressure and intensity of operation and maintenance, while improves operation and maintenance efficiency.
  • Cisco PON Manager is an embedded GUI-based device-management tool that provides the ability to provision the device, to simplify device deployment and manageability, and to enhance the user experience. It supports Alarm, Performance, Data Configuration and Delivery, Security, Log, Terminal Management and software batch upgrade functions.
