Motorola’s Home & Networks Mobility business has shipped its one millionth optical network terminal (ONT) for Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) deployments around the globe. Motorola began scaled shipments of ONTs in 2004 and now offers a full portfolio of international ONTs designed for single family units, multiple dwelling units (MDUs) and small businesses. Enabled by the AXS2200 and AXS1800 optical line terminals (OLTs), Motorola’s family of ONTs delivers services such as symmetrical Internet connectivity in hundreds of megabits per second and HDTV and VOD.
“Of available FTTH technologies, GPON deployments will grow the fastest with a 77.1 percent CAGR from 2008 through 2013, and Motorola plays a clear role among the leaders within this FTTH segment,” said Jeff Heynen, directing analyst at Infonetics Research, in a statement. “By reaching this impressive milestone of one million BPON and GPON ONT devices shipped, Motorola is successfully demonstrating its ability to support the growing wave of GPON deployments globally.”
