GPON: A fast and reliable way to optics!

The use of the fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) form of delivering communication signals has already been spread through millions of households around the world, thanks to its benefits and the advantages it has over other technologies. One of the most popular ways of providing FTTH is through a Gigabit Passive Optical Network, also known as GPON.

The main characteristic of the GPON technology is its use of passive splitters in the fiber distribution network. This makes GPON a point-to-multipoint access network, in the sense that it enables a single feeding fiber from the provider to serve multiple premises.


GPON is in a significantly favored position over traditional networks, based on its features and performances. Compared to traditional networks the Gigabit Passive Optical Network provides a much higher amount of data transmission (i.e. a higher bandwidth capacity). The high bandwidth capacity supports all forms of IP based services from Security Systems, Video on Demand to High and Ultra High Definition IPTV and many more.

Aside from its speed, the GPON technology is also cost saving and reliable. Using 80% less copper and 60% less power than traditional networks, makes it a network infrastructure with the lowest cost on the market. The cabling used has a longer life, a longer reach, and a greater network security. Powerful safety measures are incorporated at the physical level, data level and the end user port, preventing risks of Denial of Service (DoSS), redirects and other malicious attacks. The GPON infrastructure is often characterized as “future-proof”. What this refers to is GPON’s ability to support the advances of the end user technology without the need to upgrade the GPON’s infrastructure.
