An innovative technology for FTTH implementation, Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) provides unprecedented bandwidth (up to 2.5 Gbps downstream rate, shared by up to 128 premises), and a greater distance from a central office (20 to 40 kilometres, as opposed to 4~5 kilometre for DSL), allowing service providers to enable bandwidth-intensive applications and establish a long-term strategic position in the broadband market.
GPON utilises point-to-multipoint topology. A passive fibre splitter is used to split the fibre to multiple premises, thus reducing the amount of fibre and central office equipment required compared with point-to-point architectures. The passive nature of GPON eliminates the use of electricity, making it possible to install the splitter in a place where power is not easy to acquire. It is also more energy efficient.
D-Link's GPON OLT L2 Switch uses FSAN compliant GPON technology to enable service providers to deliver triple play services to customers. Power efficient and easy to manage, the DPN-6608 provides expandable infrastructure to meet service providers’ needs now and in the future.
