Rochester, NY — February 6, 2024 — Precision OT, a global optical system engineering and integration company, announces the general availability of OpenPath™, its turnkey solution that enables a more open Passive Optical Network (PON) ecosystem. Launched in September 2023, the solution is setting new standards for flexibility and efficiency in the deployment and management of 10 Gigabit Symmetrical Passive Optical Networks (XGS-PON).
OpenPath™ is a revolutionary solution that mitigates the many challenges and roadblocks Multiple System Operators (MSOs), service providers and access network operators have traditionally faced. Leveraging a white box hardware model and with a focus on interoperability, Precision OT enables customers to move past vendor-lock scenarios, making acquiring the vital equipment needed for their XGS-PON deployments faster and simpler. Moreover, OpenPath™ provides them with a strong, nimble platform to evolve their networks in lockstep with future PON technologies as well as other third-party solutions. With OpenPath™, customers receive a solution that simplifies and speeds up PON deployments – all backed by the deep-seated engineering and integration support customers have come to expect from Precision OT.
“After exhaustive testing and successful field trials, we’re thrilled to be able to announce the general availability of OpenPath™,” says Harj Ghuman, VP of Strategic Products, Precision OT. “OpenPath™ is the future-proof solution that will help our customers bridge digital divides in a way that ensures optimal performance and interoperability with any existing infrastructure and software systems they have.”
For forward-thinking network operators, OpenPath™ enables users to converge residential, commercial and wireless services all over a single infrastructure, providing significant advantages in an era of budgetary compression. Additionally, users are able to reuse existing ODN/passive resources, which has the potential to make it even more economical for Precision OT’s customers to deliver ultra-fast broadband to their customers.
