GPON Network

Product Code : PON


       GPON is an alternative to Ethernet switching in campus networking. GPON replaces the traditional three-tier Ethernet design with a two-tier optic network by eliminating access and distribution Ethernet switches with passive optical devices. 


A GPON network consists of OLT (Optical Line Terminals), ONU (Optical Network Unit), and a splitter. The splitter will divide the signal when needed. The OLT takes in all the optical signals in the form of beams of light from ONUs and will convert it to an electrical signal. GPON is a point-to-multipoint access mechanism that supports triple-play services, high-bandwidth, and long-reach service coverage. GPON adopts wavelength division-multiplexing (WDM) technology, facilitating bidirectional communication over a single fiber. A GPON network can reach up to 20 km and provide service up to 64 end users.


From the optical splitter, separate single mode fiber strands will run directly to the end user’s home, business, school, etc. This transmission can reach up to 20 km starting from the central office running to the user. With GPON transmitting downstream in a broadcast manner and upstream in a TDMA (time division multiple access) manner, different bit rates are possible with 1.2 Gbit/s in upstream and 2.4 Gbit/s in downstream is most common.
