Gigabit Passive Optical Networks (GPON)

Gigabit Passive Optical Networks (GPONs) are fiber-based, short-haul networks that deliver increased speed and consistency especially for data-intensive activities like video and VoIP. GPON networks use passive components like optical splitters to power connectivity, lowering network costs and energy consumption while delivering higher data rates.

Although GPON networks have shorter physical ranges than their conventional counterparts, there are some important advantages:

  • Less Cumbersome Physical Equipment: GPON networks don’t require physical switches to be used and, since one fiber can carry and split multiple signals, you also need less fiber optic cable.
  • Simpler Maintenance and Management: Having less equipment means that maintenance is easier to keep track of and undertake, and GPON networks can be centrally managed with minimal hassle.
  • Better Quality: Because GPON networks separate data, voice, and video into three layers, it can provide better levels of quality for each type.

Activo’s cabling specialists and network integration experts are ready to help you identify and plan for a structured cabling infrastructure that reflects current and future needs and budgets. We can help keep you compliant with the required regulations and prepare for the trends that will impact your business in the coming years.

Gigabit Passive Optical Networks (GPON) Frequently Asked Questions

Are there certain types of applications for which GPON is ideal?

GPON networks are well suited for:

  • Large facilities requiring a high density of Ethernet ports
  • Locations with significant distance between data centres and end-points
  • Spaces in which networks are going to be converged

To learn more about whether a GPON network solution will be right for you, contact Activo.

Are there any services that traditional networking systems deliver that GPON can’t?

No. GPON networks are capable of delivering the same services as traditional copper or fiber networks (voice, video, data, security, and more), however with GPON networks the quality of service higher and maintenance is simpler.

What types of documentation should I expect to receive following my GPON installation?

Much of the documentation you receive will be the same as with traditional networks, though the placement of ONTs compared to edge switches will be different depending on the nature of your deployment.
