Alloptic has released its DPC software – Alloptic’s DOCSIS PON Controller – which enables DOCSIS provisioning and control of its EPON system. DPC acts as a proxy between back office systems and Alloptic’s GEPON system; the PON OLT appears to be a CMTS, and the PON ONU replaces a cable modem.

LIVERMORE, Calif. – Alloptic has released its DPC software – Alloptic’s DOCSIS PON Controller – which enables DOCSIS provisioning and control of its EPON system.

DPC acts as a proxy between back office systems and Alloptic’s GEPON system; the PON OLT appears to be a CMTS, and the PON ONU replaces a cable modem, resulting in PON performance from a DOCSIS-controlled network.

“DPC solves several problems for cable operators,” said Dave Emberley, research manager for telecommunications equipment at IDC. “The biggest benefit is expanding their ability to address a broader set of business needs for enhanced Ethernet and TDM services while continuing to use their OSS and billing systems. Alloptic’s DPC is an important step in the evolution of deep fiber strategies toward advanced business services.”

DPC works in concert with Alloptic’s other products – including its RFoG MicroNode ONUs, GEPON OLTs and ONTs, and the GEMS management system – to allow increased operational efficiencies, bandwidth gains, and the ability to offer advanced services to residential and business customers without requiring major overhauls or replacement of OSS components, the company said.

“Leveraging network operators’ existing investment is vital to their success,” said Shane Eleniak, vice president of marketing and business development for Alloptic.

“Alloptic’s systems drop into the access network alongside other technologies, including RFoG, making the transition to PON-based architectures possible at a pace and scale that makes sense for the service provider.”

By enabling DOCSIS-controlled PONs, service providers can enhance their current networks in a phased approach, with new network elements for both greenfield and brownfield deployments.
