MRV Communications’ Optical Communications Systems Division is participating in the third installment of interoperability trials with CableLabs specifications for DOCSIS Provisioning of Ethernet Passive Optical Network (DPoE). These trials test the ability of Carrier Ethernet access solutions to interoperate with other devices in end-to-end networking scenarios.

This event marks MRV’s third CableLabs DPoE interoperability trial where the company will showcase its OptiSwitch Carrier Ethernet Access solution that can be deployed over an EPON using the providers’ current DOCSIS back office and offers service providers a full suite of business and wholesale Ethernet services, mobile Ethernet backhaul capabilities and hardware-based Ethernet operation, administration and maintenance tools.

DPoE specifications define the methods for EPON equipment to be provisioned using DOCSIS systems and service concepts in support of Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) defined standards for simplified Metro Ethernet services. Through a series of interoperability testing events, CableLabs features several combinations of IP and Ethernet equipment from multiple suppliers to create a DPoE network that spans across multiple MSOs.
