Cortina Systems, Oliver Solutions Demonstrate 10G-EPON ONU and OLT System Interoperability Testing

Cortina Systems, the leading provider of intelligent communication solutions for businesses and Oliver Solutions, the leading provider of SDN/NFV based management software for access networks, have jointly performed an end-to-end EPON ONU and OLT System interoperability testing.

The testing is the first chip-level interoperability of symmetric 10G-EPON devices based on DPoE specifications at CableLabs, said Cortina.

CableLabs is a non-profit research and development consortium that serves to define interoperable solutions among its members and their technology suppliers in order to drive scale, reduce costs, and create competition in the supply chain.

According to Cortina,  the CS8124 10G-EPON OLT and CS8160 10G-EPON ONU devices were successfully tested with Oliver Solutions' DPoE software stack, demonstrating features such as Multiple LLID, IPv6 based provisioning, non-secure firmware upgrade, Customer VLAN, Service VLAN operations and IP HSD.

CableLabs is proud to facilitate these interoperability events so companies like Cortina Systems can drive the implementation of this technology into the market. This enables MSOs to deploy PON-based services with existing DOCSIS® provisioning backend and processes."

"Together with Cortina Systems, we are opening the door to a whole new era of fiber-based services enabled by DPoE specifications. With the successful interoperability, we have demonstrated that our software stack developed based on DPoE 2.0 specifications, running on both Cortina OLT and ONU devices, offers MSOs a complete end-to-end provisioning solution of 10G-EPON with currently deployed servers."
