Huawei Shows New ONT

At this week's Fiber To The Home (FTTH) Conference and Expo 2011 in Orlando, Huawei is showing its new Optical Network Terminal (ONT) and Intelligent Optical Distribution Network (iODN). The ONT design allows a single ONT type to be used for indoor, just-inside, and outdoor applications. It will simplify network operation and reduce deployment costs. The unit – with 2 POTS and 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports – can be deployed indoor for desk or wall mounting use. The same ONT can also be placed in an outdoor enclosure or just-inside enclosure depending upon the network application.

Huawei's iODN brings intelligence to the fiber management system while maintaining the passive nature of the ODN network. The iODN uses eIDs to automatically identify and manage fiber connections, intelligently determine fiber connection operations, and accurately manage optical splitters. With iODN, operators can automatically search the target optical fiber and appropriately operate it, paving the way for efficient Fiber To The Premises (FTTP) rollouts and accurate isolation and identification of fiber faults.
