Based on ITU-T G.984 standards, Zhone's MXK delivers the next generation of high-performance business and residential FTTx services. Zhone has two distinct form factors for the MXK product line. Zhone's MXK chassis-based OLT is unique in the industry with its ability to provide simultaneous support for both PON and Active Ethernet fiber technologies to the node, curb or premises. Service providers can offer digital or RF video, high-bandwidth Internet access, VoIP and cell relay services from a single OLT over IP.

MXK-F Chassis

The MXK-F™ chassis architecture is designed around a dual star design with redundant ultra high-speed links to each subscriber line card slot for future-proof support of today's and tomorrow's bandwidth-hungry fiber-based subscriber services. Also MXK-F™ management control and aggregation switch fabric functions reside on two separate cards, each of which can be equipped in a redundant configuration; MCs (Management Cards) and FC (Fabric Cards). Lastly, a fully-distributed database and parallel firmware loading enable simple fast upgrades.

MXK 1U OLT

The Zhone MXK-190 provides next generation 1U GPON OLT features in a compact, hardened form-factor that makes it easy and cost-effective to deliver uncompromising triple play services throughout the serving area. Models are available with 4 or 8 GPON Ports. The ITU-T standard GPON technology provides 2.5Gbps downstream and 1.25 Gbps upstream bandwidth over a passive optical network on each of the 4 or 8 ports per unit.

GPON Outdoor ONT

Based on a wire-speed router architecture, Zhone’s outdoor GPON ONTs deliver best-in-class data throughput regardless of packet size to support the most demanding FTTx applications. All new models provide dual 1Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, two or four voice ports with support for SIP, SIP-PLAR and MGCP Voice over IP protocols. This gives service providers an elegant migration path from legacy to softswitch architectures without replacing ONTs. GPON models are available with and without support for downstream RF Video or RfoG.
