Leveraging unique Calix auto-detect optics, the Calix 700GE and 700GX ONTs are the industry’s first ONTs to support GPON and Active Ethernet in a single ONT. This delivers unmatched flexibility to service providers looking to meet the broad service demands of both residential and business subscribers in their networks. Service providers no longer have to manage separate networks to deliver residential and business services, but rather match the right technology to each deployment scenario, and manage as one network.
Formerly, GPON and Active Ethernet were often seen as competing technologies, and service providers were forced to choose between them and run separate networks to support them. The Calix 700GE and 700GX ONTs allow GPON and Active Ethernet to be deployed as complementary technologies based on the application, yet managed within a single network. The result: More efficient network management and operations models, complete service flexibility, and peace of mind that no matter what the service demand, the 700GE and 700GX ONTs, once installed, can cost-effectively support it without need for a service call or truck roll.
700GE ONTs leverage another unique Calix feature, the ability to upgrade the ONT to a Residential Services Gateway (RSG) via a software download. This feature also provides a flexible provisioning model that supports a variety of in-home networking deployment models (for more information see Home Gateways).
