Alloptic Announces Multivendor EPON ONT Interoperability

Alloptic has extended the capabilities of its edge10 OLT to interoperate with ONT designs that are based on EPON chipsets from PMC-Sierra and Teknovus. Interoperability of ONTs via a common OLT allows the network operator to support a wide variety of applications and customer segments over a common infrastructure. Multiple vendors can create ONTs for specific market requirements giving network operators tailored, yet cost-effective ONT solutions. Leveraging the Alloptic edge10 OLT allows those different ONTs to be deployed on a common fiber infrastructure, even on the same PON.
