ARRIS’ FTTMax Ethernet Passive Optical Networking (EPON) solution is a platform designed to leverage the existing cable infrastructure and drive fiber to the premises. The solution consists of the FTTMax EPON Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and Optical Network Unit (ONU). It is intended to expand cable operators’ ability to serve small and medium businesses and emerging markets by providing Gigabit Ethernet services. Operators already using the ARRIS CHP Max 5000 Headend chassis can add EPON to their service offerings by simply adding an FTTMax EPON OLT to the CHP Max 5000 chassis and an ARRIS FTTMax EPON ONU at the customer premises. The plug-and-play modules leverage ARRIS’ CORWave coordinated wavelength plan over existing HFC infrastructures. The FTTMax OLT media converter uses DOCSIS back-office systems and existing routers and switches. Up to 1,280 customers can be served from the 20 OLT ports per 2RU.
