ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today showcased the new HG8240 Optical Network Terminal (ONT) and Intelligent Optical Distribution Network (iODN) at Fiber To The Home (FTTH) Conference and Expo 2011, booth #823, in Orlando, Florida.
The versatile HG8240 ONT design allows a single ONT type to be used for indoor, just-inside, and outdoor applications. It will simplify network operation and reduce deployment costs. The HG8240 ONT – with 2 POTS and 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports – can be deployed indoor for desk or wall mounting use. The same ONT can also be placed in an outdoor enclosure or just-inside enclosure depending upon the network application. This high performance ONT is suitable for multiple applications which minimizes inventory costs and improves service installation/provisioning efficiency. The HG8240 utilizes a System-on-Chip designed to deliver wire speed GigE performance and advanced power management function for green operation.
Huawei's iODN brings intelligence to the fiber management system while maintaining the passive nature of the ODN network. The iODN uses eIDs to automatically identify and manage fiber connections, intelligently determine fiber connection operations, and accurately manage optical splitters. With iODN, operators can automatically search the target optical fiber and appropriately operate it, paving the way for efficient Fiber To The Premises (FTTP) rollouts and accurate isolation and identification of fiber faults.
"Delivering ultra-high speed broadband over fiber access with dramatically improved cost points is the challenge we commit to address," said Reg Wilcox, Vice President of Network Marketing for Huawei Technologies USA. "The new HG8240 Optical Network Terminal and Intelligent Optical Distribution Network added to Huawei's Single Fix Access Network (SingleFAN) solution, give operators greater flexibility to simplify and significantly improve the economics of their fiber access network."
Huawei's continued leadership in the FTTx and DSL fields has provided cost effective end-to-end broadband access solution to nearly one-third of all global broadband users. In the process, Huawei has enriched people's communication access around the world.
