Optical line terminals

Offering operator-specific 10G fiber platforms

At the heart of a point-to-multi-point or passive optical network (PON) is the optical line terminal (OLT). Modern OLTs offer communication service providers (CSP) the ability to launch multigigabit services to tens of thousands of subscribers from a single location or just ten. Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network operators benefit from deploying OLT solutions that span dense urban, suburban, and rural market use cases. We offer OLT devices that deliver distinct and differentiated value for different network operator segments, whether a national incumbent, emerging regional, or rooted in telecom or cable operations.


Modern, open, and disaggregated architectures 

With an open microservices architecture approach, service providers have the freedom to choose best-of-breed elements. This expedites the creation of new customer applications and the introduction of more sustainable technologies while reducing overhead costs, network inefficiencies and time-to-market delays. Our SDX 6000 Series of open and disaggregated OLTs deliver unprecedented levels of network simplicity, sustainability and scale to both MSOs and CSPs by providing the network economies of data centers and the service agility of cloud providers. It also offers rural, suburban and dense urban deployment options.


Optimized and integrated platforms  

Our Total Access 5000 Series (TA5000) is a traditional yet highly extensible chassis-based OLT system. Focused primarily on the needs of regional and municipal network operators, it’s environmentally hardened and operationally deterministic in design. The highly optimized OLT portfolio comes in multiple-sized chassis variants sharing a common set of spares and software. Simplified workflow and advanced analytics streamline operations. An intuitive operational environment, simplified cabling and a robust service orchestration toolset streamline network turnup and service delivery.

SDX 6000 Series

Our SDX 6000 Series of software-defined optical line terminals (OLTs) consists of open and disaggregated access devices that support a broad range of PON standards, including 10G Combo PON, XGS-PON, GPON, and 10G-EPON. These devices are built using modern design principles ...
