GPON Training | Gigabit Passive Optical Networking Training

GPON Training:

GPON Training – Gigabit Passive Optical Networking Training course with hands-on Exercises (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live)

GPON Training or Gigabit Passive Optical Networking course covers the fundamentals of FTTx GPON and XGPON technologies. GPON is defined by ITU-T recommendation series G.984.1 – G.984.6. GPON can transport Ethernet, and TDM (PSTN, ISDN, E1, and E3) traffic and consists of Optical Line Termination (OLT) and Optical Network Unit (ONU) or Optical Network Termination (ONT) transmission equipment.

XGPON’s Capable passive optical networks (GPON) maximum rate is 10 Gbits/s (9.95328) downstream and 2.5 Gbits/s (2.48832) upstream using different WDM wavelengths such as 1577 nm downstream and 1270 nm upstream:

  • XG-PON optical split is 1:128
  • Data formatting is the same as GPON
  • The maximum range is 20 km
