GPON Training | Gigabit Passive Optical Networking

GPON Training, Gigabit Passive Optical Networking course covers the fundamentals and purposes of Ten Gigabit and Gigabit Passive Optical Networking and Fibre Systems. This includes but not limited to the applications of Fibre and the X (FTTx), their associated instrument, its flexibility, and function inside a modern transmission network.

Some GPON Terminology and Definitions

A PON is a fiber network that solely uses fiber and passive elements such as splitters and combiners instead of active elements such as amplifiers, repeaters, or shaping circuits. The cost of such networks is considerably less than the cost of those using active components.

The major drawback is the shorter coverage limited by signal strength. An active optical network (AON) that can cover up to about 100 km (62 miles), whereas a PON is usually limited to fiber cable runs of up to 20 km (12 miles).

PONs also are known as fiber to the home (FTTH) networks. The term FTTx is applied to state how far a fiber run is. In FTTH, x is for home. It also is called FTTP or fiber to the premises. Another alternative is FTTB for fiber to the building. These three versions present systems where the fiber works from the service provider to the customer, while in other systems, the fiber is not run all the way to the customer. Instead, it is run to a temporary node in the neighborhood, which is called FTTN because of the fiber to the node. Another variation is FTTC, or fiber to the curb. In this case, also, the fiber does not run all the way to the home. FTTC and FTTN networks can use a customer’s unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) copper telephone line to expand the services at lower cost.

GPON Multiplexing Mechanisms

  • Downstream direction

Data packets are transmitted in a broadcast manner, but encryption (AES) is used to prevent eavesdropping

  • Upstream direction

Data packets are transmitted in a TDMA manner
