CommScope announced that Jupiter Telecommunications, a cable broadband and multi channels video provider in Japan, has selected its XE4202 10G-EPON Remote OLT fiber node module to deliver 10Gbps broadband to residential and business broadband customers in Kansai region.
This collaboration enables a large-scale deployment of 10G EPON with Remote OLT in the Kansai region that J:COM will look to use as a model to expand 10Gbps broadband service in Japan.
The deployment of 10G EPON with Remote OLT allows J:COM to leverage its existing hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) network and fiber nodes to offer 10G EPON which enables groundbreaking 10Gbps symmetrical speeds using CommScope’s NC4000 Optical Node and CH3000 Headend Optics Platform.
CommScope’s combination of headend, node, and optics solutions paves the way to further strengthen J:COM’s HFC and Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) networks. The capability to support 10G EPON along with fiber deep upgrades allows J:COM to take advantage of broadband spectrum expansions, virtualized and distributed access architectures, and to reduce capital and operating expenditures.
“J:COM’s network of the future showcases our portfolio’s versatility in facilitating the migration to FTTH, providing more network capacity and reliability for end users,” Morgan Kurk, executive vice president, Broadband Networks at CommScope, said.
“J:COM is offering the J:COM NET Hikari 10G Course /Hikari 5G Course /Hikari 1G Course data service to Kansai area to meet the needs in high-speed, large capacity communication due to video consumption and the growth of IoT in home devices,” said Shigenari Saito, managing corporate officer and GM of Technology Unit, J:COM.
