BroadLogic Network Technologies and ZTE are teaming to showcase a solution for using Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) infrastructure to deliver broadcast-quality video services to digital TVs for new business video services. The new solution comprises BroadLogic’s Internet Protocol to Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (IP-to-QAM) reference system integrated with ZTE’s C300 optical line terminal (OLT) carrying broadcast video to a QAM-ready digital TV. It will be demonstrated during the CableLabs Winter Conference Feb. 28-March 1, in Atlanta.?

The new EPON-to-QAM gateway enables EPON (both 1G and 10G EPON standardized in 2009) to deliver high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) TV channels to hospitality and other bulk commercial accounts. EPON is being widely deployed for commercial data and transport services; leveraging these existing networks for new video services enables operators to better capitalize on that investment. EPON-to-QAM gateways also can be used for residential services and are ideal for Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) digital TV services.
