Alloptic Releases Managed MicroNode RFoG ONUs

Alloptic released a new range of "MicroNode" RFoG optical networking units (ONU): the 1000 series Managed MicroNode RFoG ONU featuring remote monitoring and control capabilities.

Alloptic said that even though the R-ONU is the critical optical enabler in an RFoG architecture, it has traditionally been an unmanaged device. Its new Managed MicroNode RFoG ONU gives service providers the ability to monitor ONU operating parameters as well as remotely enable and disable service. With this control, service connects and disconnects are achieved without a service dispatch or truck roll, significantly decreasing operational costs and decreasing theft-of-service losses.
