ORLANDO, FL - Network equipment provider ZTE announced that it has built the world’s first symmetrical commercial 10 gigabit Ethernet passive optical network (10G EPON) network for technology provider Qoncert. The network features a 10GE user network interface (UNI) that enables Qoncert to increase network access speeds for business customers. The network combines 10G EPON and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN technologies, becoming the first to do so and setting a new benchmark in the construction of 10G EPON networks. Until now, 10G EPON has been asymmetric, with 10 Gbps downstream and 1 Gbps upstream.

"At Qoncert, we continuously strive to achieve the highest level of service for our customers, and this is another example,” says Lou Rossi, CEO, Qoncert. “By deploying the technology created by ZTE, we will be able to significantly improve and enhance network speeds, improving communication and collaboration. We have always been committed to using cutting edge technology and are proud to be a part of this exciting endeavor."

ZTE used its deep knowledge of FTTx in the development of the network and worked with leading North American operators to complete testing of the equipment. The company says it will continue to focus on EPON as it expands its networking business in the region. ??

"North America is a frontier for the application of new technologies and has always been one of our most priority regions,” says Xu Ming, vice president, ZTE. “By drawing on our experience in successfully deploying FTTx technology on a massive scale worldwide, ZTE is eager to demonstrate its solutions for North American markets. The Qoncert network is a prime example of the innovation and quality we can bring to customers."
