1. Active light
The active optical network unit is mainly used for the integration of three networks. It integrates CATV full-band RF output, high-quality VOIP audio, three-layer routing mode, wireless access, and other functions to easily realize triple-network convergence terminal equipment access.
2. Passive light
A passive ONU (Optical Network Unit) or ONU fiber is a user-side device of a GEPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) system and is used to terminate a service transmitted from an OLT (Optical Line Terminal) through an EPON (Passive Optical Network). In conjunction with the OLT, the ONU can provide a variety of broadband services for connected users. Such as Internet surfing, VoIP, HDTV, VideoConference and other services. As a user-side device for the FTTx application, ONU is a high-bandwidth and cost-effective terminal device necessary for the transition from the "Bronze Age" to the "Fiber Age". As the ultimate solution for subscriber wired access, GEPON ONU plays an important role in the future network construction of NGN (Next Generation Network).
The UTStarcom ONU 1001i is a cost-effective terminal for GEPON systems. Designed for home users and SOHO users, it provides a gigabit-rate broadband connection for user gateways and/or PCs. The ONU 1001i provides one 1000Base-TEthernet network port for data and IPTV video services. The ONU1001i can be configured and managed remotely by the UTStarcom BBS series optical line terminal (OLT).
