In the broadband communication, fiber optic technology has become the mainstream for communities and telecom transmission deployment as it fulfills the cloud application, high-demanding multimedia streaming needs and a transmission distance of up to 120km. To satisfy the demand of the FTTx infrastructure, PLANET has come out with a complete product line of Fiber Switches, Fiber Routers, Metro Fiber Switches, Commercial and Industrial Media Converters, GPON/ GEPON OLT, GPON/ GEPON ONU, and PoE Media Converters. PLANET also provides a combined CO and CPE VDSL2 solution to meet the last mile transmission requirements.
To improve the technology of Optical Fiber Ethernet with highly-flexible, highly-extendable and easy-to-install features, the data rate and distance of Optical Fiber Ethernet are up to 100Gbps and up to 120km, respectively. PLANET provides many kinds of Point-to-Multi Point Managed Fiber Switches and CPE especially for Metro Ethernet applications. The benefits of PLANET Metro Ethernet Switch Solution 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 100Gbps to meet the needs of high-bandwidth multi-media. It is the best choice to connect the enterprise, community and campus in the metropolitan area to backbone network for service providers.
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 to up to 120 kilometers and available upon request as well.
Building a network of FTTH (Fiber to the Home) or FTTC (Fiber to the Curb), PLANET Manageable family of media converter chassis and FST/GST/XST converters offer multiple selections for FTTx deployment. The Managed 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 can be remotely controlled within the chassis from on/off and status/statistics of ports, as well as the advanced features like redundant links.
