New Iskratel OLT blade to address multiple deployment densities

Share this on social media:

Iskratel has launched an XGS-PON Optical Line Terminal (OLT) blade for its broadband-access product SI3000 Lumia, offering a multitude of access technologies. 

Fully equipped with XGS-PON blades, the company’s single SI3000 Lumia XGS-PON OLT can serve up to 32,678 users from the same MEC chassis. The four-port XGS-PON OLT blades in MEC chassis support full wire-speed throughput, as well as split ratio up to 1:512.

The new offering will complement Iskratel’s existing PON OLT portfolio by providing full scalability of deployment from 1U versions to the biggest MEC chassis of SI3000 Lumia OLT. It serves all use cases across residential, business and backhaul, as well as providing scalability for both GPON and XGS-PON technologies. The greater scalability means the blade can address all deployment densities from high-density urban environments to low-density rural settings.

Based on network processors, the blades operate in a flow-based mode and pave the way for operators to use next-generation, software-defined access solutions. There is no need for hardware upgrades which allows operators to avoid the entire investment cycle, since software upgrades can modify the operation radically or even turn the OLT into fully virtualised pOLT with vOLT software running in the cloud.
