Fiber Optic Connectivity
In the broadband communication, the fiber optic network deployment is increasingly applied to fulfill the cloud application and high-demand multimedia streaming needs nowadays. The fiber optic transmission has large advantages over existing copper wire due to the optic fiber cable carries much lower attenuation and interference. However, compared to the existing copper or UTP cable, fiber optic was relatively expensive and difficult to be widely deployed in a short period of time. Besides fiber optic system usually employed by core network such as telecommunication, campus and hospital, fiber Switch, media conversion and GEPON passive optics devices are various available ways to efficiently deploy fiber connectivity network.

Comprehensive Solution from the Edge to the Core
Through decades of experience in IP networking and fiber communication, PLANET has developed a comprehensive fiber connectivity solution to help ISPs, telecoms quickly construct broadband service as well as the fast connectivity to the edge.

PLANET provides broad range of Fiber-related product lines adapting for all kinds of working environments. PLANET delivers solution of fiber connectivity in commercial, carrier grade, and especially industrial level products for stable networking in wide operating temperature. In the Chile Miners rescue mission in 2010, PLANET fiber solution was successfully to assist the trapped miners underground 624 meters to keep hope of live by visual and voice communication with their families and rescue team.

FTTx / Metro Ethernet
By means of improving the technology of Optical Fiber Ethernet with high-flexible, high-extendable and easy-installation features, the data exchange speed of Optical Fiber Ethernet is up to 10Gbps and the distance of Gigabit Optical Fiber is up to 120Kms. PLANET provides many kinds of Point-to-Multi Point managed Fiber Switch and CPE especially for Metro Ethernet Application. The benefits of Metro Ethernet Switches include not only professional Internet Management Technology, such as IPv6/ IPv4 Dual-Stack, Q-in-Q VLAN, Multicast, QoS, Security and High Availability, but also Optical Ethernet Internet Architecture up to 10Gbps to fulfill the high-bandwidth needs for multi-media. PLANET Metro Ethernet Switch Solution is the best choice to connect the enterprise, community and campus in metropolitan area to backbone network for service providers.

Media Conversion

Media conversion is a cost-effective solution to extend fiber networking rapidly rather than adopting optical fiber only. It also efficiently helps to solve the distance limit between the Ethernet and Local Area Network. With the feature-rich chassis provided by PLANET, at least 16 converters can easily expand the fiber optic networks by simply plug and play. The wiring distance of PLANET media converter chassis is extendable from 2 up to 120 kilometers and available upon request as well.

Building a network solution of FTTH (Fiber to the Home) or FTTC (Fiber to the Curb) for ISPs, PLANET Manageable family of chassis and FST, GST converters offer the multiple selections for FTTx deployment. Manageable family is a series of managed Media Conversion Center that provides hot plug and play slots for various types of converters. Through the management interface, the entire status of the converters could be remotely controlled within the chassis from on/off and status/statistics of ports, as well as the advanced features like redundant links.

Passive Optical Network (PON)

Passive Optical Network (PON) would be the most promising NGN (Next Generation Networking) technology to fulfill the high bandwidth demand of HDTV, IPTV, voice-over-IP (VoIP) and Multimedia broadband applications. PON technology is developed to support PMP (Point-to-Multi-Point) applications and offers advantages of reduced cost by sharing the equipment and fiber at the CO, and easy maintenance compared to the active equipment.

PLANET provides GEPON OLT and ONU solution offering competitive advantages:
. A long-term life expectancy of the fiber infrastructure
. Lower operating costs from the reduction of “active” components
. Supporting up to 20km distance between equipment nodes
. Easy Installation and maintenance
. Providing much greater bandwidth.

PLANET GEPON OLT and ONU solution is the perfect solution for Triple Play or Surveillance applications. It provides ultra-high speed Internet connection for IPTV, surfing Internet, making VoIP phone call and IP surveillance by great cost saving point-to-multipoint FTTx technology.
