Cloud-to-Edge Next-Gen PON solution suite

To meet subscriber demand for higher capacity broadband services, network operators are turning to next-generation passive optical networking (PON) technologies such as XGS-PON, 25G, and beyond. But until now, next-gen PON rollouts have been hampered by the high capital and operational costs of legacy, proprietary systems. That’s about to change.

CommScope is passionate about breaking down conventional PON thinking and building modern, intelligent solutions that evolve with the needs of our connected world. We offer an open, cloud-to-edge PON platform that takes flexibility, agility, and cost efficiency to new heights—and a keen focus on successful execution.



The vision and capabilities to help you succeed

The CommScope PON portfolio is built to give service providers an edge by making it easy to build and scale their next-gen networks for virtually any opportunity. That’s why we created a system that is truly open, with the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of deployment scenarios and a set of dynamic features that streamline management and speed the rollout of new features. Our cloud-to-edge PON portfolio is built on decades of experience developing, deploying, and testing advanced FTTH solutions in our cutting-edge, 4000+ square foot PON lab.
