Zhone Technologies introduced 18 new zNID optical network terminals (ONTs) for GPON and Active Ethernet deployments. These newest additions to the zNID-42xx product line provide a 10-times performance improvement over earlier models.

Based on a wire-speed router architecture, Zhone’s new ONTs deliver data throughput regardless of packet size to support the most demanding FTTx applications. All new models provide dual 1Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, two or four voice ports with support for SIP, SIP-PLAR and MGCP Voice over IP protocols. This gives service providers a migration path from legacy to softswitch architectures without replacing ONTs.

The latest generation of HPNA chipset for home networking is performance optimized with flexible provisioning over phoneline and coax. Active Ethernet models provide an SFP uplink that supports a wide variety of Active GigE transceivers for even greater deployment flexibility. GPON models are available with and without support for downstream RF Video or RfoG. All models are manufactured in Zhone’s USA production facility and are available immediately.
