Zhone has long been a pioneer in the industry with its broadband and multi-service access solution offerings. Zhone is at the forefront of technology innovation today, with large-scale global deployments of its high-capacity FTTx multi-service systems including the MXK, MALC and zNID ONTs which are designed to provide high performance and cost-effective solutions for bandwidth requirements.
Today's businesses rely on bandwidth, speed and connectivity for their success. To satisfy business customer needs, an access system must be capable or delivering a variety of broadband options for whatever type of service the business customer requires of a service provider. Large business needs may be different from a small business. The applications supported differ too ranging from PBX broadband connections, ultra high-speed data to Ethernet based services. Unlike residential broadband, business may also want more than 'best efforts', requiring a service provider to offer a guaranteed amount of bandwidth. VLAN and QoS are fully supported in MXK and MALC and allow providers to deliver business customers broadband services with SLAs.
With the rapidly increasing levels of personalization and interactivity in communication and entertainment today for residential and business users, the need for fiber networks has become imperative to meet the exponentially growing bandwidth requirements. GPON has today become the preferred fiber access technology due to its technical and performance advantages and its overall total cost of ownership (TCO) benefits over other technologies. In addition, GPON provides a smooth and cost-effective migration to next-generation 10G technology which is poised to drastically improve the user experience. Active Ethernet, providing 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps point-to-point connectivity, is another high-bandwidth access technology alternative that is rapidly improving the user experience today that could be ideal for business services.
Our customers are looking for solutions to solve their bandwidth and access network needs today with a view to the future. Zhone's MXK is the industry's 1st Terabit Access Concentrator, providing the industry’s leading density, throughput and switching capacity.
