Ericsson enhances EDA 1500 GPON system
Ericsson has upgraded its EDA 1500 Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) system to switch bandwidth up to 320Gb/s for commercial and residential next-generation multimedia services.
Fiber-optic technology and fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) deployments are becoming an increasingly important part of access networks capable of delivering cutting-edge services, such as IPTV and other IP-based multimedia services.
The enhanced EDA 1500’s increased capacity enables the move from multicasted to unicasted broadband connections. This enables individual end users to experience their own high-speed services, such as video-on-demand and time-shifting TV streams. Once the system and switch interfaces are installed, future capacity upgrades simply require new software and service cards.
