729GP Optical Network Terminal (ONT)
The one-rack unit (1 RU) Tellabs 729GP ONT features 24 ports of Gigabit Ethernet with Power over Ethernet (PoE) for powerful enterprise business data service delivery. IEEE 802.3af PoE and 802.3at PoE+ compliance provides up to 30 watts on each Ethernet port. PoE provides remote power to VoIP desktop phones, Wi-Fi access points, IP security cameras and other environmental and access control systems. The Tellabs 729GP also features 24 ports for analog voice business service delivery. Equipped with standard RJ-45 CAT-rated cabling for Ethernet data and voice service delivery, the Tellabs 729GP ONTs feature an ITU-T G.984-compliant 2.5 Gbps downstream and 1.25 Gbps upstream G-PON interface supporting the full range of advanced services, including voice, video, data, Wi-Fi, smart buildings apps, security, surveillance, environmental and automation.

Included Highlights

Advanced IP and Ethernet

Uses industry-leading software-defined traffic management, security, provisioning and quality of service mechanisms.


The Tellabs 729GP features 24 ports for analog voice business service delivery via RJ-21 50-pin POTS connector


Tellabs 729GP ONT supports flexible video content delivery in the form of Ethernet/IP data, either as unicast or multicast streams controlled by the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). Multicast Quality of Service (QoS) is supported with a combination of 802.1p bits and advanced bandwidth management mechanisms. Using VLANs and advanced IGMP processing ensures security, service delivery and efficiency for each user. The Tellabs 729GP ONTs are an excellent choice for all forms of enterprise video, such as entertainment, security, videoconferencing, high-end telepresence conferencing, telepresence robotics and surveillance.


Tellabs 729GP ONT supports local AC power. The input power takes 120/240 AC from a 3-pin AC power connector with an on-board switch and fuse accessible from the back of the ONT. For backup power options, existing building backup power generation systems can be utilized.

Power over Ethernet (PoE)

Both IEEE 802.3af PoE and high-power PoE+ IEEE 802.3at, including Class-4 negotiations can be selected on per port basis. The maximum PoE power is 450 watts, spread across all twenty-four Ethernet ports.


Tellabs 729GP ONT are 1 RU in height and can be mounted on a standard 19" telecom rack or 23" rack with appropriate mounting brackets.
