XPON ONU stands for XG-PON Optical Network Unit. It is a type of network device that is used in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks to provide high-speed internet and other communication services to end-users.
XPON ONU receives signals from the central office or headend via an optical fiber cable and converts them into data packets that can be transmitted to the user’s computer or other network devices. It typically includes several ports for connecting multiple devices, such as computers, televisions, and phones, and may also include advanced features like Quality of Service (QoS) and VLAN tagging to prioritize and manage network traffic.
Overall, XPON ONU plays a critical role in enabling fast and reliable internet connectivity for households and businesses in fiber-optic networks.
