CableLabs Develops DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON Specifications

CableLabs is developing new specifications for DPoE (DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON) for Business Services that will give cable operators a common method of using DOCSIS back office specifications and service concepts to provision and operate EPON-based (Ethernet Passive Optical Network) products when delivering IP and Ethernet services. Future versions of the DPoE specifications will add support of a greater variety of data and voice services in the commercial space.

In addition to CableLabs participation in this initiative, Broadcom, Hitachi-CTA, ZTE and Finisar (formerly Broadway Networks) served as vendor members of the development team, and were also directly involved in writing the DPoE specifications.
