Calix E7-2 GPON-8 Line Card

The Calix E7-2 GPON-8 line card provides eight ITU G.984-compliant Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) interfaces and four Gigabit Ethernet (GE) interfaces, along with two ports of integrated 10-Gigabit Ethernet.

The E7-2 GPON-8 line card can be plugged into one or both of the two universal slots within a Calix E7-2 shelf. In a 1RU chassis, E7-2 supports sixteen PONs, up to 64 Optical Network Terminations (ONTs) for a total of 1024, plus eight point-to-point Ethernet subscribers and four 10GE ports.

The E7-2 GPON-8 card supports a full set of Ethernet services and network topology protocols on the Ethernet ports and can be used interchangeably with other E7-2 line cards to create a redundant system configuration.
