Calix E3-8G

E3-8G Node-based GPON OLT

The E3-8G is a node-based, environmentally hardened, optical line terminal (OLT). This innovative node is optimized to allow cable operators to cost-effectively deliver symmetrical gigabit services today, while preparing for 10 gigabit per second (10 Gbps) and multi-wavelength based PON service offerings in the future. Leveraging 60/90VAC cable plant power and a strand or pole mountable node-based design, the E3-8G is designed to seamlessly deliver advanced broadband services to over 500 residential or business customers using proven gigabit passive optical network (GPON) technology. By utilizing a node-based architecture, cable operators can both leverage a familiar form factor and deployment model, as well as significantly improve the economics of fiber deployment when compared with traditional fiber network deployments.
