Multiple Dwelling Unit GPON ONT with RF Video: ZNID-GPON-9308


The zNID-GPON-9308 ONT was designed to serve multiple customers.

This product is ideal for multiple dwelling units (MDU) with up to eight (8) tenants. It provides eight Voice ports and eight 10/100/1000bT LAN ports, plus a ninth 10/100/1000bT LAN port for connecting an auxiliary device such as a Wi-Fi access point or video camera.

The 9308 can also provide RF video to eight customers. The same coax connector that provides RF video, could provide IPTV using the MoCA capability.

Each Voice port and LAN port is individually controlled, and can be assigned to specific customers. A customer can have as many POTS and LAN ports as desired, with unique VLANs configured per customer to ensure full isolation of each customer’s data traffic.

All 9000 series MDU ONTs provide the same voice features found on the 4200 series of Single Family Unit (SFU) ONTs. Both MGCP and SIP are supported for direct connection to a VoIP Softswitch. This flexibility allows DZS’ 4200 and 9000 Series ONTs to work in nearly all Telco networks, with interoperability support for a broad array of Softswitches.

All LAN ports are capable of supplying Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3at compliant) making this also an ideal product for applications such as video surveillance.

All 9000 series ONTs are designed for outdoor use. The weather proof enclosure can be installed in two stages for carriers that want to terminate the fiber before installing the active components.

The standard Cable Entrance Box provides a single 1.5″ diameter conduit opening, so that the power, voice, and LAN, cables can be routed from the zNID-9000 series product into the building in a secure fashion. An optional Large Cable Entrance Box is available that provides 4 separate conduit opening and extra room for cable slack storage for installations that require secure routing of the power, voice, LAN and T1/E1 cables in separate conduits.

All 9000 series ONTs share a common SW architecture with the 4200 series of zNIDs. It has the same intuitive Web interface and command line interface that is found on the 4200 series of zNIDs. The zNID is also managed by the DZS Network Management System (ZMS), using SNMP. Software upgrades and configuration backups can be handled automatically by the ZMS using the CPE Manager feature.

Although the zNID-9308 is ideal for MDU applications, it can be used in many other applications.

The unit’s Power over Ethernet ports could be used to power up to nine IP cameras, providing an excellent solution for video surveillance. With the GPON fiber uplink, there is plenty of bandwidth available for the video data.

The Network Timing Reference that is recovered from the fiber uplink is delivered over the eight LAN ports to the attached devices. This enables Pseudo-wire devices such as the ETHX-3142 to operate in synchronous timing mode, deriving the T1 or E1 Service Clock directly from the 9108’s Ethernet clock.
