Cutting-edge solutions and innovative carrier access open platforms
Accton continuously strives to provide the latest cutting-edge carrier access solutions to its carrier, service provider, and Multiple System Operator (MSO) customers. With more than 30 years of R&D experience in Ethernet hardware and software design, Accton’s engineering teams have a proven track record in supplying cost-effective ODM solutions to Tier-1 vendors worldwide.
Accton’s experience in carrier access products covers a wide range, from passive optical networks for residential broadband access to NEBS-compliant aggregation switches and routers, as well as 3G/4G mobile and enterprise IP backhaul devices. To build on past achievements, Accton is now actively engaged in bringing next-generation SDN/NFV open platforms to markets in the near future.
Residential Broadband Access
Accton has a successful track record in delivering GPON products stretching back over many years, including GPON ONTs, home gateways, and other ONU devices. Accton has also developed a GPON BOSA (Bi-directional Optical Sub-Assembly) design that fits in a standard SFP form factor. As PON technology moves to 10G and 40G solutions, such as XGS-PON and NG-PON2, Accton will continue to develop innovative solutions that offer higher capacity, lower costs, and wider coverage.
As carrier aggregation networks have adapted to increasing bandwidth demands, Accton has delivered the required hardware solutions that build operator infrastructure. These switches, routers, and edge controllers are customized with a variety of port interfaces to meet the requirements of specific aggregation applications. Accton’s extensive carrier-class experience integrates redundant PSUs and fan assemblies into robust NEBS-compliant designs that have been successfully manufactured for Tier-1 operators worldwide.
With a focus on the future, Accton is now developing SDN/NFV open-platform architectures that extend up to 100 Gbps. Working with its software partners, Accton has the ability to deliver next-generation SDN-based devices that conform to Open Compute Project (OCP) and Telecom Infrastructure Project (TIP) specifications.
3G/4G Mobile Backhaul Access
As mobile wireless networks move to new technologies and higher traffic volumes, the need for greater capacity in backhaul connections has become urgent. With LTE-Advanced mobile networks that can reach data throughput rates of up to 100Mbps, the backhaul infrastructure must be able to provide the scalability and flexibility to support the ever-improving wireless connectivity. Accton offers extensive experience in delivering backhaul devices for 3G/4G mobile networks as it has for carrier access aggregation. What’s more, as networks migrate to SDN/NFV open platforms over the next few years, Accton is perfectly positioned to provide Telecom Infrastructure Project (TIP) compliant open devices to mobile operators.
SOHO / SMB / Enterprise Ethernet Backhaul
Accton’s 30 years of R&D experience and vast array of engineering resources has been effectively applied to produce carrier-grade devices for the IP backhaul market. Carrier access switches, routers, Ethernet Demarcation Devices (EDDs), and Network Interface Devices (NIDs) have been custom-designed for many service providers worldwide. These innovative designs meet NEBS Level-3 compliance and include outdoor hardened devices that support Ethernet OAM (IEEE 802.3ah) for fault detection and performance monitoring, and Synchronous Ethernet (IEEE 1588v2). As networks move to 10G, 40G, and 100G speeds with SDN/NFV open-platforms, Accton is ready to deliver cost-effective next-generation IP backhaul solutions.
