The Versa Technology GEPON product line can run up to 20Km at the maximum speed up to 1.25Gbps, which adds additional revenue generation gear for developers and service providers.
The Versa Technology GEPON "Shelf" type of CO-side concentrator enables a wide variety of deployment options of FTTP from customer's premises to carrier's office. It guarantees competitive access performance beyond 100Mbps bandwidth per subscriber necessary for multi channel high resolution video delivery as well as high speed data and toll quality voice with RF video to all customers on the PON.
The Versa Technology GEPON product line secures a migration path to the premises for IP-centric services such as VLAN, multicasting, link aggregation, multi-layer filtering, rate limiting, class of service (CoS) and quality of service (QoS). Robust and open web-based management system provides easily the capabilities necessary for operation administration, maintenance and provisioning.
Cost effective optical distribution for single home as well as MDU
The Versa Technology GEPON concentrator for installing at the Central Office or Business Park securing cost effectiveness through lower cost optical distribution and less space in its installed office. Also it can support hotel, office, MDU owners and BLEC (Building Local Exchange Carriers) to deliver converged IP services using the VX-EP246 Optical Network Terminal for Copper Distribution.
Future-proof multi-layer data and RF video features
The Versa Technology GEPON Chassis supports 802.1q Tag VLAN, Mac Address Limitation per Bridgeport, IEEE802.1p, 802.1ad link aggregation and IP multicasting for more value generation. It also provides multi-layer features beyond Layer 2 that future proofs services. The fully mounted platform is capable of RF video along with high-definition video over IP.

Joe Taylor, Director of Business Development at Versa Technology has been listening to customers for years try to figure out how to gain an edge on cable operators and incumbents "Fiber to the Home is the only way to gain the ultimate competitive advantage in North America, Latin America and South America. It is the answer to the question, 'What Next?' We hear at Versa Technology must move forward and provide its service providers with the bandwidth they need to give the end user even more features than they could ever want." He also had this to say: "While copper is still viable in a lot of situations, we have to listen to our customers and be able to provide them with a solution that will ensure competitiveness for 20 years to come."
