BroadLogic Network Technologies and ZTE are teaming to offer a new solution that uses Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) infrastructure to deliver digital TV video-on-demand (VOD) and broadcast services to cable subscribers in multiple-dwelling units (MDUs). The integrated solution, which includes ZTE’s C300 10G optical line terminal (OLT) and BroadLogic’s Internet Protocol to Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (IP-to-QAM) Node reference design, offers cable operators a way to provide VOD and broadcast services for high-density population areas such as high-rise buildings.

The solution will be demonstrated publicly for the first time during the China Content Broadcasting Network (CCBN) Exhibition at the China International Exhibition Center (CEIC), March 23-25.

10G EPON enables high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) digital TV services to be delivered via an EPON-to-QAM gateway that leverages EPON systems already in place for data services. This new approach consists of an EPON-to-QAM gateway housed in an outdoor enclosure supporting as many as 128 QAMs. It connects BroadLogic’s high-density silicon-based QAM solution and a 10G EPON system from ZTE. The same EPON system can be used to offer VOD services. Other digital TV services, including linear and switched broadcast, also can be offered.
