ZTE completes interoperability for CableLabs DPoE technology


ZTE announced the completion of the third
interoperability test (IOT) event for Data Over Cable Service Interface
Specification (DOCSIS) Provisioning of Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON),
or DPoE technology.


Cable Television Laboratories (CableLabs), a research and
development consortium, supervised the IOT, which demonstrated the technical
feasibility of using DPoE technology in a multi-vendor environment.


The tests included registration, provisioning and
operations support system interface (OSSI), and verified interoperability
between a large selection of devices from multiple vendors, including DPoE
ONUand DPoE System solution platforms and chipsets.


The completion of the third iteration of the IOT further
substantiates the maturity of both the specification and the technology behind
the DPoE specifications, which strengthens ZTE’s ability to bring advanced
DOCSIS network provisioning solutions and field-proven EPON together to address
business service requirements of multiple system operator (MSO) customers.


DPoE technology is a natural choice for cable operators
looking for long-term optical access solutions.DPoE networks provide high
bandwidth, reliability, cost-efficiency and a natural migration path from
1G-EPON to 10G-EPON, and have a well-established industrial supply chain for


We are proud to work closely with CableLabs, its members
and our peers to develop standards that will allow cable operators to deliver
advanced services to their customers,” said Lixin Cheng, CEO, ZTE USA.


We plan to participate in future interoperability events
to continue providing the best service possible in this industry, and work
toward becoming one of the first solution vendors to fully support the DPoE
specifications after they are released,” Cheng added.


The Metro Ethernet-certified ZXA10 C300 OLT platform is
currently shipping to major cable MSOs in North America, providing advanced
services such as mobile backhaul for cell sites as well as Metro Ethernet and
VPN services for commercial customers.


Recently, ZTE announced that it has been selected
by ANTEL (Administración Nacional de Telecomunicaciones) to assist in
providing 300,000 subscribers in Uruguay with a Gigabit Passive Optical Network
(GPON). The tender is one of the largest ever issued in the South American
