Passive Optical Networks (PON) for HFC Access
Deploy a flexible, unified network with a built-in competitive edge
For cable operators, staying competitive and seizing the all fiber opportunity does not mean walking away from existing investments in HFC networks and DOCSIS®. The key to successful network evolution is to extend the lifespan of their existing networks, while deploying PON solutions that can coexist alongside them and provide an evolutionary path to what’s next.
The CommScope FLX™ portfolio gives MSOs the flexibility they need to migrate their networks to PON on their own terms. Operators can choose to build out an EPON network with DPoE, which provides the fastest path to PON, requires minimal changes to headend and CPE infrastructure, and offers a low total CapEx. They can also deploy a GPON/XGS-PON network for maximum performance and a modern back office. And, with a single pane of glass for both HFC and PON technologies, ServAssure® Domain Manger and ServAssure NXT Performance Manager ensure that cable operators work smarter, not harder.
白皮书：优化 PON 架构，最大限度提高电子效率在部署无源光纤网络(PON)时，选择的 FTTH 架构会影响有源设备的成本。光学功分器的安置起着重要的作用。
使用新一代混合体 HFC 为 PON 提供支持In the past 10-15 years, fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) networks have been deployed in many regions of the world. This paper compares the total end-to-end costs and throughput of the most common types of PONs and demonstrates how the HFC node can be used to enable cable operators to deliver HFC and fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) services simultaneously from the same node.
