KEYMILE will showcase its extensive portfolio of solutions for powerful P2P and PON optical fibre networks at the forthcoming FTTH Conference 2018 in Valencia, Spain.

At the event from 13-15 February, KEYMILE will be showing its new mini GPON OLTs for future-proof and economical development of small passive optical networks for the first time.

On stand S01 at the FTTH Conference 2018 in Feria Valencia, KEYMILE will be presenting the MileGate 3031 and 3032 mini GPON OLTs (gigabit ethernet passive optical network-optical line terminator) as the latest members in MileGate's GPON OLT family. This perfectly complements KEYMILE's range of solutions for optical fibre networks.

The MileGate 3031 and 3032 mini GPON OLTs are compact nodes for small passive optical fibre networks. They provide eight or 16 GPON ports, allowing network operators to set up powerful optical fibre networks cost effectively in sparsely populated areas.

Up to 128 termination points or 2.048 subscribers can be connected to one port via a splitter. Thanks to their small sizes, the mini GPON OLTs can also be installed even where space is lacking.

In addition to products for passive optical networks, KEYMILE will use the Valencia showcase to present the MileGate 2012 micro DSLAM for ultra-fast broadband in FTTB installations, which can also be used as a compact GPON ONU (optical network unit).

A core characteristic of KEYMILE's products is that they're future-proof. Network operators can use the combination of FTTB and as a bridge to the optical fibre future. In PON's case, the route passes from today's GPON via XGS-PON (a symmetrical version of 10Gbps) to NG-PON2 with 40Gbps.

"Our GPON solutions allow network operators to set up small, medium and large passive optical fibre networks in PON structures," explains Lothar Schwemm, KEYMILE's CTO. "The current solutions have already been prepared for XGS-PON and NG-PON2 and therefore for high symmetrical data rates of the type that will soon be standard in many applications."
