OAKLAND, CA — FTTx network access vendor Zhone Technologies announced the immediate availability of its new zNID 24xx GPON optical network terminals (ONTs) as part of its ongoing efforts to increase cost efficiency and service differentiation. These new indoor zNID GPON ONTs are designed for both greenfield and expansion FTTx networks globally, and leverage the features and best-in-class performance delivered by Zhone’s widely deployed 42xx series outdoor zNIDs.

Sleek, small indoor optical network terminals have found favor in multifamily housing, where residents often object to bulky outdoor ONTs that can't be hidden in smaller spaces.

“Zhone continues to leverage its deep experience in managing the complexity of multiservice access to build the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of FTTx customer premise equipment for GPON and active Ethernet standards,” says Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer of Zhone. He adds, "The new series of zNIDs provide a highly competitive price point while providing a compelling solution for complex triple-play applications.”

The new product line integrates and leverages Zhone’s FTTx product portfolio including the MXK platform, Zhone Management System and EZ Touch Provisioning System. The new zNID 24xx indoor residential ONT products, with support for the ITU-T G.984.5 enhancement band standard and built in wavelength blocking filters, ensure that service provider networks are next-generation GPON-ready.

The zNID GPON 24xx family includes six products, all providing GPON uplinks, targeted at the indoor residential market segment:

ZNID-GPON-2402: 2 GE LAN ports
ZNID-GPON-2403: 2 GE LAN ports, RF Video
