(NASDAQ: ZHNE), a global leader in FTTx network access solutions, today announced general availability of the Zhone Unified Provisioning 3.0 software for its zNID product line. Integration of Zhone's cloud-based provisioning solution provides a single point from which to manage and configure an entire network while also reducing network management complexity. As technology continues to rapidly advance, home network configuration complexity increases dramatically and the roles of networked devices in the home have to evolve to meet bandwidth requirements. The most cost effective solution for residential FTTx applications is to deploy a GPON ONT that includes integrated Residential Gateway features. Through Zhone's Residential Gateway, service providers have the ability to extend network intelligence directly to the subscriber location resulting in fine-tuned performance and remote operations management. Zhone's Unified Provisioning 3.0 software enables full pre-provisioning of all Residential Gateway features, including WiFi SSIDs and encryption passwords, firewall and port forwarding rules, static routes, Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet username and password, as well as upstream and downstream rate limits. Additionally, it adds full configuration support for several interfaces, including TR-069, SNMP, Web GUI, and Telnet CLI, to reduce operational costs for deployment of dual managed GPON ONT + Residential Gateway products. "All FTTx service providers face a common challenge - to reliably and cost-effectively deliver voice, IPTV, video and broadband Internet to residential users," said Brian Caskey, chief marketing officer at Zhone Technologies. "Zhone's Residential Gateway management solution provides service operators with maximum network flexibility for provisioning and troubleshooting." Zhone introduced the industry's first GPON ONT with integrated Residential Gateway features in 2007 and today its zNID product line includes more than 30 different GPON Residential Gateway models. Zhone continues to provide innovative broadband access solutions, delivering voice, video and data services over copper and fiber.
