What Sets The GPON And EPON Optical Fiber Networks Apart? How are they Different?

Maram Technologies has developed a product called Queva - Q10502T, which is an all-in-one box consisting of various components required for a broadband connection, such as ONU, OTT, ONT, Wi-Fi Router, and Telephone. This product aims to simplify the process of maintaining multiple devices and reduce the logistics for ISPs, cable operators, and MSOs.

The company also offers an Android Box that can be used to connect homes and offices to the internet. This box comes with various connectors to cater to different ISP requirements in India, such as Hathway, Act, and BSNL. The article further discusses the different types of optical fiber networks that can help businesses stay connected to the internet, namely EPON and GPON. Older passive optical networks (PONs) use a time-division multiplexing scheme for downstream communication, where each fiber strand is divided into multiple wavelengths with corresponding modulators at the end of each fiber segment.

Active PONs, on the other hand, split each wavelength into two channels using an external modulator to transmit downstream data in both directions through the same wavelength. EPON uses only one optical cable segment, while GPON uses multiple optical segments up to 1 km long. The number of splitters and split levels in PONs can vary with vendors and the system, and the split ratio is typically 1:32 or 1:64 but can be higher.
