Broadband Access Solutions

Our broadband access products are at the core of our product strategy and offer a variety of options for carriers and service providers to connect residential and business customers. Our solutions allow carriers and service providers to either use high- speed fiber or leverage their existing deployed copper networks to offer broadband services to customer premises. Once our broadband access products are deployed, the service provider can offer voice, high-definition and ultra-high-definition video, high-speed internet access, and business-class services to their customers. We develop our broadband access products for all aspects of carrier and service provider access networks: customer premise equipment.

The DZS Broadband Access solutions include …

  • Passive Optical Network (GPON / GEPON / XGPON1 / XGSPON / NGPON2 / 10GEPON)
  • Active Ethernet (1G / 10G / 40G)
  • Digital Subscriber Line (xDSL, Gfast)

Network Ethernet-MPLS Switching

Our Ethernet switching products provide a high switching performance and manageable solution that bridges the gap from carrier access technologies to the core network. Over the past ten (10) years, carriers have migrated access infrastructure to Ethernet from time-division multiplexing and asynchronous transfer mode systems. Our products can also be deployed in data centers, blurring the line between the central office and the data center. Our products support pure Ethernet switching as well as layer 3 IP and multiprotocol label switching (“MPLS”) and are currently being developed as part of the new programmable SDNs networks.

Mobile Fronthaul and Backhaul

Our mobile backhaul products provide a robust, manageable, and scalable solution for mobile operators that enable them to upgrade their mobile backhaul systems and migrate from 5G networks and beyond. We provide our mobile backhaul products to mobile operators or carriers who provide transport for mobile operators. Our mobile backhaul products may be co-located at the radio access node base station and can aggregate multiple radio access node base stations into a single backhaul for delivery of mobile traffic to the radio access node network controller. We provide standard Ethernet/IP or MPLS interfaces and interoperate with other vendors in these networks. In recent years, mobile backhaul networks have been providing carriers with significant revenue growth, which has led to mobile backhaul becoming one of the most important parts of their networks.

Managed Enterprise Passive Optical LAN

Our FiberLAN™ portfolio of POL products are designed for enterprise, campus, hospitality, and entertainment arena usage. Our portfolio includes high-performance, high-bandwidth switches connected to port extenders, which include units with integrated Power over Ethernet (“PoE”) to power a wide range of PoE-enabled access devices.

Our environmentally friendly FiberLAN™ POL solutions are one of the most cost-effective LAN technologies that can be deployed, allowing IT network managers to deploy a future-proof, low-maintenance, manageable solution that requires less space, air conditioning, copper, and electricity than other alternatives.

The FiberLAN™ portfolio is focused on a “plug and play” architecture for a new generation of distributed enterprise IT infrastructure that is both highly secure and bandwidth scalable with unified management of wireless and wireline end-points/devices from a central network operations center with full visibility and management control of remote sites. Additionally, with SDN upgrades enterprise networks can be software programmed to autonomously monitor, reconfigure, diagnose, and authenticate without the need for human intervention.

Software-Defined Networks

Our SDN/NFV strategy is to develop tools and building blocks that will allow customers to migrate their network’s full complement of legacy control plane and data plane devices to a centralized intelligent controller that can reconfigure the services of hundreds of network elements in real-time for a more controlled and efficient provision of services and bandwidth on a web-scale basis. The latest evolution of our hardware-based solution is designed to support SDN/NFV architectures.

The adoption of SDN/NFV is a slow process in the service provider space but is viewed as providing a better service for subscribers and more efficient and cost-effective use of hardware resources for service providers. We will leverage our broadband access, mobile backhaul, and Ethernet switching expertise to extract and virtualize many of the traditional legacy control and data plane functions to allow them to be run from the Cloud.

Product Overview and Value:

Product and Design Superiority

The DZS MXF-F OLT platform supports an industry first @ASAP™ - Any Service Any PON solution which allows the service operator to seamlessly implement any fiber-based service using a single set of cards and ports.

Our MXK-F is complemented by our extensive set of ONT options and the integration with our acclaimed 5G Front/Back haul solution which is being deployed in advanced markets such as Korea and Japan.

MXK-F OLT Overview

With network deployments around the world, DZS’ solutions are designed to meet the constraints and requirements of the harshest and most demanding environments in the industry.

DZS’s MXK-F OLT series is best in the class for high-capacity, scalable, fiber-optimized aggregation platform.

  • Highest port and subscriber density per port/card in the market, up to 4096 PON subscribers per service slot.
  • Carrier-class reliability with multiple redundant components
  • Uplink options to match all current metro ethernet connectivity needs and service usages (10GE/40GE and 100GE).
  • High-density cards, offering any port / any PON (GPON/XGSPON) connectivity
  • Terabit switching capacity plus QoS for the new broadband optical access networks
  • Future proof access for any Fiber connection from 1GbE, 10GbE, 2.5GPON, NGPON and 25/100GbE

The MXK-F now supports the @ASAP™ - Any Service Any PON “Combo” card which allows Telefonica to deploy any PON technology (10XGSPON, GPON, 10GE, 1GE) using the same card/electronics and also to take advantage of the recently introduced “combo” SFPs that enable providing GPON + XGSPON simultaneously without the need of an external coexistence element.

The 16 ports Any PON card supports up to 4096 concurrent subscribers when configured in combo mode. The card includes 2 100GE ethernet ports for direct uplink for increased offloading capacity and to future prof the access network.

Future proof dOLT solution

DZS also has a disaggregated OLT solution (dOLT) V8202I series. The 2U high V8202I chassis along with the @ASAP™ - Any Service Any PON “Combo” card (same card used on the MXK-F 1419) allows service providers to implement a dOLT solution with a smaller footprint to match the granular needs of service demand. For increased capacity, V8202I can be stacked and associated as a single managed network element as needed.
