Occam Introduces New ONT for MDU Market

Occam Networks introduced a new Optical Network Terminal (ONT) for multiple dwelling unit (MDU) and multiple tenant unit (MTU) environments. The new ON 2351 is designed to deliver Triple Play services including POTS, high-speed Ethernet data, VoIP and multiple HD video streams to up to four residences or businesses. The unit may be place on a building's outside wall, at a common service area or inside a communications closet.

Each of the four internal service locations can deliver two POTS phone lines and four Fast Ethernet ports for data and VoIP. The ON 2351 provides IP video services using 10/100 Base T and/or HPNAv3 coaxial cable to compatible set top boxes.

The ON 2351 offers IP Security Management and it facilitates Administration, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) of subscriber traffic through a combination of IP scalability, simplicity of dynamic configuration with DHCP and the cost effectiveness of Gigabit Ethernet. For MDU/MTU applications, Occam's ONT operating system extends these features by adding DHCP and IGMP snooping as well as MAC limiting, ensuring integrity of subscriber services.
