Broadband Forum Issues First GPON ONU Certifications

The Broadband Forum announced that seven products have now passed its new GPON ONU Certification Program and achieved full certification. The seven vendors whose products have achieved the first G-PON certifications are: Alcatel-Lucent, Broadlight, Cambridge Industries Group, Huawei, PMC-Sierra, PT Inovacao and Tecom.

Enrollment in the certification program is now open to G-PON ONU products with Ethernet interfaces and is based on the Broadband Forum's OD-247 test plan. It tests conformance to TR-156 using OMCI as defined in the ITU G.988, which are the most critical standards to interoperable implementations. http://www.broadband-forum.org
