OAKLAND, CA — Eighteen new optical network terminals (ONTs) - customer-premises equipment for GPON and active Ethernet networks - were introduced by broadband access vendor Zhone Technologies. These new additions to the zNID-42xx product line provide a 10x performance improvement over earlier models, the company says.

Based on a wire-speed router architecture, Zhone’s new ONTs deliver best-in-class data throughput regardless of packet size to support the most demanding FTTx applications.  All new models provide dual 1Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports and two or four voice ports with support for SIP, SIP-PLAR and MGCP Voice over IP protocols. This gives service providers a migration path from legacy to softswitch architectures without replacing ONTs.

The ONTs also feature the latest generation of HPNA chipset for home networking performance optimized with flexible provisioning over phoneline and coax.  Active Ethernet models provide an SFP uplink that supports a wide variety of Active GigE transceivers. GPON models are available with and without support for downstream RF video or RFoG.  All models are manufactured in Zhone’s USA production facility and are available immediately.
