Passive optical network (PON) Internet, or shared fiber, has a lot of advantages. Some of these advantages are cost savings, high speeds, and reliability. Learn more.
How Does Fiber Work?
While fiber-optic services (FiOS) require fiber-optic cabling and PON systems, a FiOS network can support Ethernet or Coax at the termination point (FTTH or FTTP). Learn more.
GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) is a next-generation PON standard used to deliver broadband access to homes and businesses. It consists of OLT (Optical Line Terminals), ONU (Optical Network Unit), and a splitter. Learn more.
Unlike a cable modem, FiOS does not use DOCSIS. Therefore, on a fiber-optic network you do not need a modem. You need an optical network terminal (ONT). Learn more.
