Ericsson has made several enhancements to its GPON solutions. Its EDA 1500 platform now has a new 16-port GPON OLT board, enabling broadband services to more than 14,000 FTTH GPON subscribers in a single EDA 1500 chassis.
Ericsson is also introducing an Integrated TDM Gateway (ITG) board to the EDA 1500, enabling a converged platform for packet and TDM services across fixed enterprise and mobile applications. The ITG terminates and aggregates E1 services across multiple GPON ports at the OLT for STM-1 connectivity to existing TDM networks.
Also, Ericsson is further expanding its EDA portfolio with the T780G Optical Network Unit (ONU). This GPON-fed modular ONU provides flexibility for operators delivering ADSL2+, VDSL2, POTS, E1 and Ethernet services to both business and residential users. The T780G enables operators to support dense areas with different service requirements without rewiring buildings. The ONU is part of Ericsson’s T-series of optical terminals, which provides maximum flexibility to deploy deep fiber access networks.
