The Freedom of Choice Leader.

Many Telecom solution providers have begun to future proof their networks, whether with new deployments of fiber all the way to the home or by augmenting and upgrading existing copper-based networks with fiber. According to the Fiber Broadband Association (FBA), the number of households which were passed traffic over fiber hit the 35 million mark in North America in 2017, with over 15.4 million homes connected with fiber to the premises. In 2018 the fiber passed traffic number hit 60 million with 23.8 million with fiber all the way to the home.

Meeting Current Network Needs With a Smooth Migration to the Future

Whether providing fiber the full way to the home or to the enterprise, or to the building or an outside smaller distribution point or a full cabinet on the curb, DZS has the full set of FTTx solutions. As the copper part of the network gets shorter and shorter, DZS supplies solutions, both for the current need and a migration path to the future.

Next generation 10 Gigabit PON services provide higher bandwidth, for both the evolution of converged residential, business and backhaul services and distribute access at lower cost than point to point services. However DZS understands no one solution solves all network issues. DZS combines PON and Active Ethernet and VDSL2 and G.FAST in numerous ways to provide the best possible solution for each situation.

With services that include design, installation, roll out, commissioning, acceptance testing, management and maintenance, DZS provides a carefully coordinated plan taking your organization into the future.

Meeting Customer Needs, Globally

Headquartered in Oakland, California, DASAN Zhone Solutions (DZS) is a global innovator in telecommunications solutions. With the second largest market share in FTTx among publicly traded global networking companies, DZS serves Telecom operators of all sizes, ranging from rural co-ops worldwide to Tier-1 national carriers in Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. While DZS is based in the USA with headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area, the home of Silicon Valley, and a manufacturing facility in Florida, more than 70 percent of DZS’ business is conducted internationally, outside of the United States.

10G PON Migration.

Use your existing PON Optical Deployment Network (ODN), both fiber cables and splitters to migrate to 10G PON (XGSPON) and 40G PON (NGPON2). The same MXK-F chassis supports GPON, XGSPON and NGPON2. 10G ZNID ONTs support both XGSPON and NGPON2.


For network operators and service providers, fiber is precious and budgets are constrained. The standard currency in today’s DWDM networks is 100 Gb/s for aggregation of lower rate services or for private line connectivity; existing 40-channel DWDM network infrastructure deployments may be approaching their limits, forcing expensive upgrades or overbuilds. More capacity is clearly needed, but the cost of replacing an entire network is usually out of the question.


Limited fiber capacity on critical routes, where laying new fiber is expensive and time-consuming

Outdated infrastructure can no longer keep up with growing demand for flexible, high bandwidth services


O-Series offers a complete portfolio of products and solutions to address the needs of Service Providers. FLEXManager provides the ability to quickly commission the entire network from an intuitive management platform. Optical networking service cards can be selected to meet network requirements from access to core, passive to packet, and 100M to 100G+. All delivered in a compact, lower power platform that delivers the capacity and flexibility of a ROADM-based DWDM solution. O-Series Professional Services helps you design the optimal network to ensure that projects are implemented on time and operate flawlessly.


Electric power utilities are responsible for the safe and reliable delivery of electricity to residential and business consumers. While low speed communication networks have traditionally been deployed alongside power lines for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) applications, recent developments in Smart Grid technology are driving dramatic increases in network bandwidth requirements. In particular, the advent of smart meters that record and communicate power consumption to the power company in near real-time has transformed the way electric companies do business. The elimination of error-prone and expensive manual meter readings, and the introduction of time-of-use billing and real-time consumption monitoring have allowed the utilities to streamline operational expenses, while smoothing out the peaks in consumption where electricity costs are highest. However, this new data-centric mode of operation has placed a massive burden on the utilities’ communications networks, as the amount of data being transmitted between the operations center and the customer has skyrocketed.

While smart meters can also be used to measure natural gas or water consumption, the focus over the past few years has been in the area of power consumption. Smart meter deployments are well underway with widespread deployments across North America and Europe.


Outdated infrastructure cannot support the bandwidth requirements and operators are faced with either adding more fiber or a forklift upgrade

Existing infrastructure was designed for legacy telecom networks and is not optimized for today’s IP-centric traffic

Limited bandwidth scalability cannot meet rapidly growing demand as more smart meter customers are added

Networks are expanding, with increasing distances between aggregation points, extending beyond the range of unamplified transponders


The O-Series FLEX Architecture provides the tools for addressing the key challenges faced by utilities today. Combining a complete portfolio of WDM solutions with line rates up to 100+ Gb/s, the FLEX Architecture enables operators to extract the most from each fiber – without the need for a forklift upgrade. With up to 8 Tb/s on a single fiber, over long distances, O-Series has the solution for addressing the challenges presented by today’s smart grid technologies.
