Tellabs OLT1 Optical Line Terminal (XGS-PON and GPON)

The Tellabs OLT1 Optical Line Terminal provides a small form-factor OLT supporting both GPON and XGS-PON in the same OLT. It provides flexible choices for designing a modern enterprise network to exactly align with contemporary connectivity such as IoT, wireless, cloud, open/shared office and smart buildings demands. Efficiently converge all enterprise connectivity by leveraging fiber cabling’s limitless capacity deep into your buildings and campus by equipping the OLT1 with the precise 2.5G or 10G PON capacity that is warranted – thus, minimizing space, energy and costs.

Tellabs OLT1 connects contemporary voice, video, data, wireless access, access control, security, surveillance, building environmental and building automation inside buildings and across extended campus. This is inclusive of must-have enterprise features and functionality such as, bridging, access security, mission critical reliability and operational efficiencies. The Tellabs OLT1 operates with Tellabs complete line of true enterprise ONTs, both closet-based and deep fiber ONTs, including G-PON and XGS-PON flavors.


Tellabs FlexSym OLT1 scales from 2.5G G-PON to symmetrical 10G XGS-PON. Optical distribution network splits can be designed with up to 1:64 split ratio with 10km reach. With proper optical budget and split ratio design, the extended optical reach can be as far as 30 km with1:16 split ratio. Tellabs OLT1 provides four Gigabit Ethernet and two 10-Gigabit Ethernet network uplink interfaces. The 1GbE SFPs and 10GbE XFPs are sold separately for flexible network design options.


All features and functionality can be defined in software and dynamically allocated, based on real-time needs. Being controlled by the Tellabs Panorama PON Manager helps speed installations and daily operations. Centrally controlled by the Tellabs Panorama PON Manager, the Tellabs FlexSym OLT1 supports quick provisioning using global profiles, and offers smart troubleshooting tools, all of which allow for speedy moves, adds and changes for everyday operations. The Tellabs OLT1 can support open-source and standards-based SDN with future software upgrade.


Industry leading XGS-PON bi-directional AES128 Encryption with churning key every minute is provided for ultimate security – that’s two-way PON encryption securing the downstream and upstream traffic! Tellabs OLT1 supports best in class Network Access Controls and IEEE 802.1x integration, including Change of Authorization support for ForeScout CounterACT, Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), and HP/Aruba ClearPass Policy Management.


The Tellabs FlexSym OLT1 provides industry leading fiber route diversity and geographically dispersed OLTs with FSAN-based Type-B PON Protection support to maximize network availability and uptime for critical services.
