Harmonic hardened switch for 10G fibre deployments
Harmonic has expanded its fibre broadband portfolio with the Wharf hardened switch for high-density remote optical line termination (R-OLT) applications. The Wharf switch delivers reliable, ultra-fast broadband speeds to high-density service areas and accelerates time to market of XGS-PON or 10G-EPON fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) services alongside 25/40/100G business-class services from outdoor cabinetry.
The Wharf switch offers transport and aggregation with 24 10/25G Ethernet ports alongside an array of 100G and 400G ports, enabling all services to achieve full simultaneous line rate. Coupled with Harmonic's Emmy Award-winning virtualised core and Fin R-OLT pluggable, the multi-purpose Wharf switch enables up to 20 10G PON using either ITU XGS-PON or CableLabs 10G-EPON standards.
