Next-generation PON blades by Iskratel launched to assist network upgrades

Now available from Iskratel are two universal next-generation PON blades – the 8-port multi-PON blade and the 16-port GPON blade. The blades are designed to aid a lucrative and controlled upgrade to next-generation networks, such as NG-PON2 and XGS-PON.

The 8-port multi-PON blade simultaneously supports NG-PON2 and XGS-PON technologies, without the need to replace current PON infrastructure, whilst the NG-PON blade is flexible enough to allow operators to build on their existing GPON shelves, providing a pay-as-you-grow, gradual expansion to next-generation networks.
