Arris launches EPON solution

Cable technology group Arris has launched a new FTTMax Ethernet passive optical networking solution, which it said is designed to drive fibre into premises as cable operators look for ways to increase revenue by offering new services.

Arris said the FTTMax EPON solution, which is comprised of the FTTMax EPON optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network unit (ONU), allows operators to add mixed-use services easily and incrementally, without changing their existing back office operations. Operators already using the ARRIS CHP Max 5000 head end chassis can add EPON to their service by adding an ARRIS FTTMax EPON OLT and an ARRIS FTTMax EPON ONU at the customer premises. Up to 1,280 customers can be served from the twenty OLT ports per 2RU.
