EPON OLT Line Card & Chassis


The Entra FPXT-B OLT Line Card is a high-capacity access node that addresses the needs of cable operators’ Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) fiber deployments. The device also meets the gigabit bandwidth demands of today’s residential and business users. High-bandwidth service throughput is enabled by market-leading switching and uplink capacity, as well as backplane technology that provides non-blocking connectivity to each user port.
The Entra FPXT-B OLT Line Card cable multiple system operators (MSOs) to transactionalize provisioning and support the greater scale required for fiber-based service offerings. DPoE reduces operating expenses (OPEX) by allowing MSOs to integrate and manage the Line Card as they do their DOCSIS® network. By deploying these technologies, MSOs can position themselves to deliver higher bit rates, use their fiber more efficiently, and capture a greater share of the lucrative commercial services market.
