FTTx: Powerful network infrastructures

In order to meet the ever-increasing demand for bandwidth, rising numbers of network architectures with optical fibre are being used, such as:

FTTH (Fibre-To-The-Home) via active Ethernet (FTTH P2P) or passive optical networks (FTTH PON): An optical fibre directly up to the subscriber's premises.

FTTB (Fibre-To-The-Building): An optical fibre to a Micro-DSLAM in the building and from this connecting the subscriber via G.fast or VDSL2.

FTTC (Fibre-To-The-Curb): The DSLAM/MSAN in a street cabinet near the customer from which the customer is connected via copper pair and VDSL2/vectoring.

DZS products support these FTTx network architectures perfectly and therefore give you maximum freedom in structuring your network.


The MXK-F Series is a powerful multi-service access platform that integrates numerous functions and applications in one system:

  • Switching with Terabit capacity plus QoS for optical broadband access networks
  • Transport ring technology for high-performance connections
  • Access for any fiber link from 1GbE, 10GbE, GPON, XGS-PON and 25/100GbE
  • Routing for highly available networks
