SANTA CLARA, CA - Hitachi Communication Technologies America (HCTA) announced a new line of optical network terminals (ONTs) for its DePON fiber access systems. DePON (or D-PON, as some vendors refer to it) uses an EPON architecture along with existing DOCSIS provisioning and management systems and is targeted to cable providers requiring more bandwidth than RFoG technology can provide.


“We work closely with our MSO partners to define the right feature sets for these new devices,” says Dr. Yanming Liu, CMO for HCTA. “Our emphasis on advanced software functions enables the delivery of voice, video and data services for any business, residential or backhaul application. We know from our joint development work with customers that these features create new revenue opportunities service providers can rapidly leverage.”


The ONTs, which  comply with IEEE, MEF, ITU-T, and CableLabs’ PacketCable Multimedia (PCMM) specifications, include the following:




  • C-603/C603-MW are commercial units for double-play applications with four Gigabit Ethernet data ports and two POTS interfaces to support advanced voice features.

  • C-606/C-606-MW are also commercial units for double-play applications with eight Gigabit Ethernet data ports and eight POTS interfaces.

  • C-1403/C-1403-MW are commercial models for triple-play applications with four Gigabit Ethernet data ports, two POTS interfaces and one analog video cable port.

  • C-1503/C-1503-MW are commercial models for quad-play applications with four Gigabit Ethernet data ports, two POTS interfaces, one analog video cable port and one IEEE.11b/g/n Wi-Fi interface.

  • R-1403 is a residential model of the triple-play device with a smaller form factor and plastic enclosure. It has four Gigabit Ethernet data ports, two POTS interfaces and one analog video cable port.

  • R-1503 is a commercial model of the quad-play device in the smaller form factor and plastic enclosure, with four Gigabit Ethernet data ports, two POTS interfaces, one analog video cable port and one IEEE.11b/g/n Wi-Fi interface.


These units support advanced gateway software and functions including NATP, DHCP server, firewall, multicast, configurable QoS, L2/L3 VPNs and Wi-Fi. All features can be configured using existing DOCSIS OSSI management. They also give cable operators a new set of tools to increase their penetration of business accounts by enabling the creation of E-LAN, E-LINE, E-TREE, and E-VPLS services -- the foundation of most business applications. Multiple input ports, Wi-Fi, QoS, VLAN and other features give these customer-premises devices the power and flexibility to meet business and residential service requirements.
