Gigabit EPON Access Switch


About the Product

PBN’s AOCM3600 GEPON OLT enhances the compact OLT 1RU series with a high-density L3 device. Designed with growing customer requirements in mind, this simple device serves up to 1024 GEPON subscribers while connecting to the uplink with 4/6x10GigE.

Full triple play services can be provided using IPTV Multicast or with PBN’s AIMA3000 platform with a full spectrum CATV overlay. PBN’s ONUs allow cost-efficient connectivity for high-value SLA customers and standard residential subscribers.

  • Available with 8 or 16 Passive Optical Network (GEPON) ports
    in 1RU 19" rack-mount chassis
  • Up to 6 x 10Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ based uplink ports
  • True “Triple Play” service provisioning over IEEE802.3ah compliant PON, supporting up to 16 x 64 subscribers
  • Supports SLA and DBA for carrier-class, multi-service applications like data, voice, and video
  • Redundant swappable AC and DC power supply options available
  • Allows for traffic classification, aggregation, and shaping for strict QoS enforcement
  • Supports VLAN mapping with up to four priority queues and individual service policies for each LLID link

The compact AOCM3600-series OLTs are ideal for use in small installations or green-field deployments where cost-efficiency is essence priority. This application diagram represents a typical mixed HFC-FTTx scenario with CATV overlay utilizing PBN’s AIMA3000 platform.

Based on actual growth of the P2MP FTTx subscriber, the AOCM3600 OLTs can be added as needed without a large base investment.

For the CATV overlay components, the larger AIMA3000 can be scaled based on operator needs to PBN’s 1-RU EDFA and LTE product line.
