Zhone Technologies, a provider of FTTx network access solutions,
announced that it has expanded its broadband access solutions portfolio, the
Zhone FiberHome, with the launch of the MXP-160/260 and MXP-180/280 1U SLMS
The new offerings provide advanced multi-play connectivity to global
voice, data, and video service providers.
The demand for video and bandwidth-intensive applications require
advanced network connectivity, especially for services that assist consumer
communication and entertainment needs and enhance business productivity.
The addition of the MXP-160/260 and MXP-180/280 to the Zhone FiberHome
portfolio provides operators with new solutions to help mitigate the challenges
they currently face with last mile broadband access, connectivity and
integrated multi-service capabilities.
“In many cases, new fiber or last mile fiber can become costly and the
ability to use deployed copper to provide advanced multi-play services becomes
essential. With advancements in copper, VDSL2 has become an optimum alternative
for high-bandwidth connectivity,” said Brian Caskey, Zhone chief marketing
“Through the newest additions to the Zhone FiberHome portfolio, Zhone
remains focused on delivering cost-effective solutions to enablement of
advanced broadband connectivity and delivery of cost-effective multi-service
offerings,” Caskey added.
The Zhone FiberHome portfolio provides fully programmable solutions that
enable service providers to cost-effectively generate additional revenue
through multi-play offerings, including the different iterations of video
services emerging in the marketplace.
Zhone‘s CTTP solution is based on
VDSL2 and enables up to 100Mbps symmetrical connectivity in areas where fiber
is cost prohibitive. In these cases, Zhone offers VDSL2 CPE and Central Office
(CO) products to provide high-speed, long reach and low cost solutions for
multi-tenant and multi-dwelling units (MxUs), remote terminals and CO
The MXP-160/260 and MXP-180/280 also include complete ZMS integration,
allowing carriers to reduce service turn-up intervals, reduce truck rolls, and
ultimately, improve customer service.
