Zhone's MX-160-8P VDSL2 solution offers full-rate VDSL2 30a performance for packet-based service delivery. This low-power, fully programmable, high performance solution enables service providers to cost-effectively generate additional revenue through their triple-play offering, including the different iterations of video services emerging in the marketplace. As an end-to-end solution, Zhone offers VDSL2 CPE and CO products to offer high-speed, long reach and low cost solutions for multi-tenant and multi-dwelling unit (MxU), remote terminal and CO deployments.

Ease of Management

MX-160-8P provides simple yet powerful management facility via embedded Web GUI along with complete NMS integration.

Triple Play Services

MX-160-8P includes high-performance packet switching with advanced IP capabilities to deliver secure, reliable, and efficient voice, data, and video services. Now service providers can offer compelling bundles of multi-line voice, high-speed Internet access, and multi-set IP video (including HDTV) over their existing copper infrastructure.

MX-160-8P is defined by its ease of use and packet processing/switching capability to support rich triple-play services on each subscriber port.

Optical or Copper Transport

MX-160-8P provides a FE/GE SFP-based uplink port (RJ45 or SFP), supporting both copper and fiber, to provide simple cost-effective transport.

The easy-to-use Zhone Management System (ZMS) provides OSMINE-certified management and provisioning across the access network, from CPE to the Central Office. The MX-160-8P is fully remote managed, allowing carriers to reduce service turn-up intervals, reduce truck rolls, and ultimately, improve customer service.
