Keymile presents MileGate 3510 high-density GPON OLT

Broadband equipment supplier Keymile has introduced MileGate 3510, a high-density GPON optical line terminal (OLT) that supports up to 12,2288 residential and business subscribers from a single platform. Taking advantage of the high scalability of the point-to-multipoint architecture of passive optical networks, the new platform is ideal for developing more cost-efficient fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and building (FTTB) network infrastructure, the company claims.

Based on a 6U sub-rack unit, the MileGate 3510 has a modular design that can be equipped with up to six service interface cards and two network interface cards. The service interface cards offer 16 GPON ports while the network interface cards provide up to four uplinks via Gigabit or 10 Gigabit Ethernet. The platform supports a fully redundant architecture with dual switch fabrics, power supplies and fan units for enhanced reliability.

Combining 96 GPON ports with a splitting factor of 1:128, the MileGate 2510 can connect up to 12,288 end customers. The system is not limited to 1:128, however, but can use other splitting ratios in a city district or a residential complex, such as 1:64, 1:32 or 1:16. This flexibility allows operators to adapt the network nodes to their specific requirements.

The MileGate 3510 is managed centrally by Keymile’s network management system, UNEM.

Keymile exhibited the new MileGate 3510 at BREKO Glasfasermesse 2017 on 25–26th April in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
