What is the Gigabit-capable passive optical network?
ITU-T defined the Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (GPON) to support digital communication to end customers at rates up to 2.4 Gbps downstream and 1.2 Gbps (optionally 2.4 Gbps) upstream.
Testing with Xena Odin the active transmission equipment is essential
A GPON requires active transmission equipment at its borders, and this equipment needs, of course to be tested as verification of interoperability and conformance is essential.
The Broadband Forum defined the TR-255 GPON Interoperability Test Plan and the TR-247/ATP-247 Abstract Test Plan for this purpose. Xena’s Valkyrie Odin-1G-3S-6P test module is ideal for testing and verifying GPON transmission equipment including mandatory interoperability and conformance test cases in accordance with TR-255 and TR-247/ATP-247.
