GPON-Expresse

Bring to light your fiber-based access network

Service providers are increasingly implementing fiber as part of their access networks for delivering the next generation of broadband services. Access networks are becoming mixtures of multiple deployment models, which may include fiber-to-the-node (FTTN), fiber-to-the-distribution-point (FTTdp), fiber-to-the-basement (FTTB) and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) architectures.

Service providers gain flexibility by being able to choose for each area, neighborhood or even building the most suitable combination of fiber and copper. But this flexibility leads to complexity in the network, and introduces new challenges for optimizing service delivery.

To address these complexities, service providers need management software to address the challenges of deploying and operating a multi-platform FTTx network. Such software must abstract the underlying technology and hardware, so that providers have a unified view of the delivered services.

ASSIA’s GPON Expresse extends the Expresse product family by adding support for Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology and by providing functionality that simplifies the operation of a fiber-based access network.

With GPON-Expresse, ASSIA offers a unified software-defined solution applicable to any deployment model, with open interfaces for seamless integration with Operations Support Systems, or with other tools used by Customer Care, Network Operations, Marketing or Field Force departments.
