BroadbandSuite 6.2 establishes a new standard for G-PON network interoperability
It ensures that G-PON equipment meets service provider requirements for efficient network operations and high quality broadband access options. BroadbandSuite 6.2 includes the rigorous BBF.247 and the new OLT/ONU interoperability test suite. BBF.247 verifies the conformance of G-PON ONU devices to the ITU-T G.998 G-PON standard and to the Broadband Forum TR-156 specifications. With this new release, the BBF.247 test plan now offers new options for verifying ONUs against multiple VLAN profiles and functionality tests.
This release also includes two pending technical reports: a new test plan for XG-PON1 (WT-309), as well as a new PON Optical Layer management report (WT-287). WT-287 looks at how to optimize a multi-service PON network catering to both business and residential customers. It covers system architecture, use cases, functional requirements and interoperability requirements. The specifications in WT-287 apply to both ITU-T and IEEE PON systems.
