Perfectly Designed for FTTx Applications
PLANET EPL-4000 GEPON Optical Line Terminal (OLT) consists of four GEPON ports, four 1G/10G shared SFP+ ports, four GbE RJ45 interfaces and one management port. It is easy to install and maintain a GEPON deployment. With PLANET GEPON Optical Network Unit (ONU) EPN series, the EPL-4000 can provide highly-effective GEPON solutions and convenient management for broadband network. PLANET GEPON technology provides a high bandwidth of up to 1.25Gbps for both upstream and downstream, long-distance coverage of up to 20km between equipment nodes, and flexibility for network deployment. It is a cost-effective access technology with reliable and scalable network for triple-play service applications.

High Split Ratio for a Cost-effective Network Solution
The EPL-4000 is an ideal solution for FTTx applications. It helps to minimize the investment cost for carriers by offering a high split ratio of 1:64 per port and supporting the usage of PLANET ONUs. The EPL-4000 provides strong functionalities for Ethernet features such as VLAN, Multicast, DBA (Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation), and Access Control List, Besides GEPON, the point to multipoint communications protocol is based on Gigabit Ethernet. GEPON protocol allows a Gigabit Ethernet communications fiber to be shared by multiple end users using a passive optical splitter.
