CableLabs will release specifications for DPoE (DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON) for Business Services. The DPoE specifications will give cable operators a common method of using DOCSIS back office specifications and service concepts to provision and operate EPON-based (Ethernet Passive Optical Network) products when delivering IP and Ethernet services.

“The DPoE specification effort capitalizes on cable operators’ existing back office infrastructure, provisioning, and operational processes from the DOCSIS network, offering a much higher level of service velocity and scaling of commercial services over IEEE standards-based EPON while making an efficient use of outside plant fiber assets,” said Shamim Akhtar, director of network architecture and engineering, Comcast Cable Communications, in a statement.

“Time Warner Cable, Comcast and Bright House have strongly supported this endeavor, along with the supplier community, and we are accelerating finalization of this first set of specifications for DPoE,” said Glenn Russell, VP of business services at CableLabs.
   ?In addition to CableLabs participation in this initiative, Broadcom, Hitachi-CTA, ZTE and Finisar (formerly Broadway Networks) served as vendor members of the development team, and were also directly involved in writing the DPoE specifications.
