Alcatel-Lucent Opening Up GPON to Third-Party Vendors

Ainsley Jones

Alcatel-Lucent announced it will publish version 1 of its OMCI Interoperability Implementer's Guide to aid the creation of a multi-vendor gigabit passive optical networking infrastructure. The guide will enable optical network terminal vendors in integrating their networks with Alcatel-Lucent's, reports.


According to Dave Geary, Alcatel-Lucent president of wireline network activities, the move looks to push the adoption of fibre-to-the-home by increasing interoperability amongst vendors. Alcatel-Lucent believes more interoperability will lead to faster time to market, increased competition and lower prices, says iTWire.
