Taking PON Architecture Beyond the Cabinet

May 15, 2018

Passive Optical Network (PON) by definition uses fiber optic splitter technology to create a point-to-multipoint architecture. In today’s market service providers have the option to deploy either a splice in splitter or a connectorized splitter module within their network. While both technologies are suited to build a reliable network, there are fundamental differences in the installation, troubleshooting, and economic implications for each which should be considered. This paper will review the application based differences between a splice in splitter and a connectorized splitter module while also outlining the advantages to selecting a product designed to facilitate the expanding needs of the PON architecture.
