Tellabs FlexSym ONT202

Purpose-built Tellabs FlexSym ONT202 offers flexible design choices for connecting Wi-Fi 6 access points and IP Security Cameras over a 10 Gigabit Passive Optical LAN using Multi-Gigabit Ethernet.

Carrollton, Texas. December 7, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Tellabs, the leading provider of Passive Optical Network (PON) solutions, announces that Tellabs FlexSym® Optical Network Terminal 202 (ONT202), and System Release 31.4 (SR31.4) software is moving forward with initial customer deployments.

The Tellabs FlexSym ONT202 is equipped with one 10G and one 2.5G multi-gigabit Ethernet port. The ports are backwards compatible with legacy 1G, 100M, and 10M rates. These multi-gig ports paired with a 10-gigabit symmetrical PON based on ITU-T G.9807/G.987 XGS-PON is specifically engineered to deliver exceptional performance for demanding enterprise networking applications, such as:

  •  Wi-Fi Connectivity – The multi-gig Ethernet over a 10G PON makes the ONT202 ideal for linking IEEE 802.1ax Wi-Fi 6 Access Points (AP) leveraging a fiber-based enterprise network. The ONT202 is plenum rated for deployment flexibility enabling installation near the AP and 60-watt Power over Ethernet (PoE) for the most demanding applications.
  • IP Camera Backhaul – Its industrial temperature range and high-power PoE capacity makes it well suited for outdoor IP surveillance camera networks.
  • High Density Option – Eleven (11) ONT202s can be racked together using a DIN-rail mounting rack solution for up to a twenty-two (22) port multi-gig Ethernet connectivity.
  • Outdoor Enclosure – Because the ONT202 supports industrial temperature range, customers can also order it with a NEMA enclosure making it ideal for outdoor hardened mounting.

To excel in these critical environments, the Tellabs FlexSym ONT202 supports the following unique product features:

  • 10 Gigabit Symmetrical PON
  • Multi-gig Ethernet up to 10G
  • 60W Power over Ethernet
  • Extended Temperature Range
  • Plenum Rated Compliance
  • Integrated Fiber Management
  • Local and Remote Powering
  • Software-Defined Global Profiles

Our new Tellabs FlexSym ONT202 delivers unique advantages to our customers by combining the advantages of 10 gigabit PON plus multi-gigabit Ethernet, and then adding the design flexibilities for indoor, outdoor, low port count, high port counts and with many mounting options,” said Rich Schroder, Tellabs President and CEO.
