ZTE to unveil AX11000 Wi-Fi 6E XGS-PON ONT at MWC 2022

ZTE Corporation will release its AX11000 Wi-Fi 6E 10-Gigabit-capable Symmetric Passive Optical Network (XGS-PON) Optical Network Terminal (ONT) at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2022.

The XGS-PON ONT, while offering 10 Gbps wired and 10 Gbps Wi-Fi access rates, supports the EasyMesh standard to allow multiple devices to network. With the ONT, users roaming in their homes will not experience speed reduction or video stalling any longer.

The ONT can handle such services as 4K/8K and Virtual Reality (VR) video, which require high bandwidth, low latency and high stability, to provide home users with the ultimate network experiences.

ZTE said the XGS-PON technology enables 10 Gbps speed both in the upstream and downstream. A 10 GE network port is placed at the user side.

Wi-Fi 6 E, which allows for tri-band concurrency, and Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) work together to realize maximum physical rates of 11 Gbps. The Wide Area Network (WAN), Local Area Network (LAN), and Wi-Fi technologies employed by the ONT all deliver rates in excess of 1 Gbps, allowing users to upgrade bandwidth easily.

Wi-Fi 6E supports the three bands of 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz and 6 GHz, with one band capable of working with Access Points (APs) to conduct mesh backhaul and the other two bands used to enhance Wi-Fi signal coverage and network performance throughout the home.

ZTE’s CPE products have been deployed by over 270 operators in more than 100 countries and regions. ZTE is ranked first globally for both shipments and revenues of Passive Optical Network (PON) ONTs in the third quarter of 2021, according to Dell’Oro Group.
