Flexible and Extendable Solution
The EPL-8000 has 16 uplink ports. Four mini-GBIC slots of the uplink ports of the EPL-8000 are compatible with 10GBASE-SR/LR SFP+, 1000BASE-SX/LX and WDM SFP (small form factor pluggable) fiber-optic modules. The distance can be extended from 550 meters (multi-mode fiber cable) to 10/30/50/70/120 kilometers (single-mode fiber or WDM fiber cable). They are well suited for FTTx applications for distribution data link.
Cost-effective, Long-distance and High-bandwidth Triple Play or Surveillance Applications
PLANET EPL-8000 delivers high-speed voice, data and video services to residential and business subscribers. With the PON technology, the EPL-8000 offers competitive advantages including a long-term life expectancy of the fiber infrastructure, lower operating costs from the reduction of “active” components, support of up to 20km distance between equipment nodes, easy Installation and maintenance, and most importantly, offering of much greater bandwidth. The EPL-8000 is the perfect solution for triple play or surveillance applications by offering benefits of cost-effectiveness, scalability and flexibility to network deployment.
High Split Ratio for a Cost-effective Network Solution
The EPL-8000 is an ideal solution for FTTx applications. It helps to minimize the investment cost for carriers by offering a high split ratio of 1:64 per port and supporting the usage of PLANET ONUs. The EPL-8000 provides strong functionalities for Ethernet features such as VLAN, Multicast, DBA (Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation), and Access Control List. Besides GEPON, the point to multipoint communications protocol is based on Gigabit Ethernet. GEPON protocol allows a Gigabit Ethernet communications fiber to be shared by multiple end users using a passive optical splitter. GEPON communication takes place between an Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and multiple Optical Network Units (ONUs). Using standard terminology, downstream traffic flows from OLT to ONU, and upstream traffic flows from ONU to OLT. A protocol called Multi Point Control Protocol (MPCP) is used to arbitrate the channel between the ONUs so that no collisions will occur on the common fiber.
