Ten industry suppliers participated in a DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE) interoperability testing event at CableLabs January 24-28. The event was the first in a series of interops scheduled in 2011. The next interoperability event for DPoE products is scheduled for April 11.

Version 1.0 of the DPoE specifications provided the basis for the interoperability event. DPoE specifications provide requirements for Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) equipment to be provisioned using current DOCSIS provisioning systems and service concepts. The specifications also define requirements and functionality to support Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) Ethernet Private Line (EPL) service for business customers.

Suppliers participating in the event included Atheros, Broadcom, Cisco, Finisar, Hitachi, Huawei, MRV, PMC-Sierra, Sumitomo, and ZTE.

During the interop, the companies exhibited a high level of interoperability between eight DPoE Systems, seven DPoE ONUs, and four demarcation devices. Interoperability focused on PON-layer registration, provisioning, and operational systems support interfaces (OSSI).
