Hitachiolt3 300x272On the heels of its participation in CableLabs' DOCSIS Provisioning of EPON (DPoE) interop event in January, Hitachi Communication Technologies America plans to demonstrate its Salira DePON at the CableLabs Winter Conference at the end of February. Designed as complete DPoE solution, Salira DePON includes optical line terminals (OLTs), optical networking units (ONUs) and management software.

DePON gives cable operators the ability to manage an EPON access network with their existing DOCSIS network management infrastructure. During the past year, Hitachi worked with MSOs and CableLabs to create the DPoE 1.0 specification that was the basis for the recently concluded interoperability testing. Interoperability tests for registration, provisioning, OSSI, configuration files and software downloads were part of the test suite. The Hitachi DePON equipment successfully completed the entire test suite.
