Alloptic today announced the availability of its DPC software, Alloptic’s DOCSIS PON Controller, which is designed to enable DOCSIS provisioning and control of its EPON system. DPC is intended to facilitate the acceleration of PON rollouts by cable operators and others using DOCSIS for service delivery.

The software is designed to realize the benefits of PON, while continuing to use DOCSIS flow-through provisioning and control. It acts as a proxy between back-office systems and Alloptic’s GEPON system. In effect, the PON OLT appears to be a CMTS, and the PON ONU takes the place of the cable modem, resulting in PON performance from a DOCSIS-controlled network.

The software is intended to work in concert with Alloptic’s other products including its RFoG MicroNode ONUs, GEPON OLTs and ONTs and the GEMS management system.
