Indoor GPON ONT offers smallest form-factor model available on the market
Oakland, CA — February 20, 2013 — Zhone Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, announced that it has expanded its indoor GPON ONT line to include the zNid 2301, released today at the FTTH Conference 2013, London (February 19-21; Zhone booth S15). The zNID 2301 GPON ONT, created for residential and small business services, provides many features in the smallest available CPE package, including high quality voice and data services and multicast video support.
The zNID 2301 is ideal for fibre to the home (FFTH) or small business deployments where high-speed data needs to be transported reliably. Due to its incredibly small form factor, the zNID 2301 ONT may be mounted on a wall or placed free-standing on a desktop. It also operates well in conjunction with separate residential gateway devices such as routers and WiFi access points to provide flexible triple-play configurations. It can also be equipped with a battery-backup system if necessary.
“Zhone’s indoor GPON ONTs are designed not only to be a lower cost alternative to outdoor ONT solutions, but to also deliver the full range of advanced IP voice, data and video services,” said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone. “The zNID 2301 GPON ONT is ideal for residential or small business customers looking to improve broadband and high-speed connection reliability.”
Compliant with standard OMCI definitions, the zNID 2301 is easily managed from remote sites and supports the full range FCAPS functions including supervision, monitoring and maintenance. Zhone provides the fully managed, end-to-end GPON solution, allowing its customers to buy a complete and fully tested solution from one source.
Zhone’s FiberHome portfolio of products and solutions fulfills the network requirements of both international and domestic customers’ broadband expansion efforts for residential users.
