PON broadband solutions

GPON and XGS-PON passive optical networking solutions for the fiber-connected home

Reliable, high-performance broadband is essential to today’s work, education, healthcare, and entertainment. That’s why service providers are bringing fiber and its gigabit capabilities to the residential doorstep. Selecting the optimum home network solution is essential to deliver assured passive optical networking (PON) performance to the end application and ensure customer satisfaction.

Our PON gateways and ONT/ONUs are part of the HomeVantage™ portfolio of home networking solutions powered by advanced, open-source firmware stacks. The HomeVantage portfolio delivers leading-edge services and features to meet global market demands and enables service providers to simplify broadband deployment, effectively manage software applications, and accelerate their time to market.

CommScope Home Networks is one of the largest home CPE vendors in the world, having shipped more than 300 million broadband home devices. Our standards-compliant GPON, XGS-PON, and Ethernet gateways are armed with Wi-Fi 6/6E/7 and 10G/2.5G Ethernet to extend the power of PON throughout the home network.

Open, standards-compliant gateway solutions

Deploying a PON network and CPE from a single vendor once may have looked like a good idea, but it can come at the expense of future flexibility, capabilities, and cost. That’s why we’re giving today’s service providers a choice. CommScope’s GPON and XGS PON home gateways and ONT/ONUs are ITU standards compliant, Broadband Forum certified (BBF.247 for interoperability), extensively tested for industry OLT interoperability, and designed to support open management (TR-069, USP/TR-369, OMCI and OpenSync). They provide all the flexibility network operators need to expand and improve their systems for years of service growth.


PON Performance — throughout the home

To truly delight subscribers, service providers need to deliver all the bandwidth of PON to every device in the home, whether they’re wired or wireless. With CommScope PON and Ethernet gateways, they can. Our gateways offer 10 Gbps and 2.5 Gbps Ethernet ports, Wi-Fi 6 performance, and the opportunity to leverage new, uncongested 6 GHz spectrum with tri-band Wi-Fi 6E/7. We also offer a full lineup of Wi-Fi extenders to provide whole-home coverage under a wide range of conditions.


The right solution for your broadband services

To align your gateway costs with varying service tiers and deployment scenarios, you need choice. Our broad portfolio addresses one-box or two-box solutions, GPON, and XGS-PON, with optimal Wi-Fi configurations. Home Networks has a solution that strikes the right balance of performance and cost for your unique needs.


Enhanced performance with Wi-Fi 6 & 6E, with 7 on the way

Our expanding portfolio includes new Wi-Fi 7 options to deliver faster, more reliable connections than previous versions of Wi-Fi. Our tri-band Wi-Fi gateways take performance to the next level by adding 6 GHz spectrum to the existing 2.5 and 5 GHz bands. This new spectrum is uncongested and free from inefficient legacy devices. Together, Wi-Fi 7 and 6 GHz means more deterministic services, lower latency, and higher capacity for new devices and applications.



Powered by open-source firmware stacks

Our HomeVantage PON solutions use open-source software with carrier-grade enhancements to harness the innovation of industry-wide communities and ecosystems.  Support for containerized applications enables efficient delivery of value-added services and applications, without the need to update the entire gateway platform software.

Cloud device management is supported by CommScope Home Networks’ HomeAssure®, or other service delivery platforms, including containerized application orchestration, Wi-Fi® management, and other advanced services.
