The University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), an independent provider of broad-based testing and standards conformance services for the networking industry, will work with BroadLight, a supplier of fiber access processors, to provide a GPON testing tool for the cable and telecommunications industry.

The growing interest in GPON reflects both fiber as a virtually limitless bandwidth conduit and GPON as an efficient and cost-effective way to deploy fiber. With downstream speeds of 2.5 Gbps and upstream speeds of 1.25 Gbps, GPON can handle the demand for HD IPTV, online gaming and cloud computing applications.

In cooperation with the UNH-IOL, BroadLight is providing the platform for the development of the GPON test suite that complies with the guidelines specified by the Broadband Forum, a global consortium focused on the development of global broadband network specifications. BroadLight’s participation is on the infrastructure aspects of testing, specifically on the best of class BL3458 processor chip family and the basis for the UNH-IOL’s development of the OLT emulator test tool.
