1U Pizza Box 16-port All-In-One PON Whitebox OLT for Complete Fiber Flexibility

Today’s service providers are faced with all types of challenges, from growing consumer bandwidth demand to rising costs and technology that is always evolving. What you need is the power to be flexible. You need a solution that works for all environments, all networks and all technologies to keep customers happy while vastly lowering costs.

The Zyxel SDA3016SS2 is a pure all-in-one (AIO) PON Whitebox OLT that gives service providers that flexibility. With 16 ports, it simultaneously supports a full range of future-proof transceiver technologies. Developed to overcome any challenge, this Whitebox OLT offers a unique combination of time-synchronization, carrier-grade hardware features and an open-source compliant, software-agnostic solution. No matter the fiber scenario or mobile backhaul deployment, the SDA3016SS2 makes business easy and affordable while keeping your operations future-proofed for generations to come.

Infrastructure that integrates

Technology is at its best when it integrates with others. That’s why the SDA3016SS2 is built to support any combination of hardware and software from third-party vendors. The device has standardized components such as Intel® x86 CPUs and networking ICs and supports standards defined by global communities such as the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), Telecom Infra Project (TIP) and Broadband Forum (BBF). As a result, you can have a true open-source, disaggregated infrastructure experience.

Timing synchronization on a new level

As the increasing demand of 5G continues to drive Radio Access Network (RAN) densification, the PON network plays an increasingly important role in alleviating the challenges of mobile backhaul communications. The SDA3016SS2 supports both IEEE1588v2 Precision Time Protocol and ITU-T Sync-E standards for ultimate time-synchronized signal transmissions. With this Whitebox OLT, you can open new business opportunities by tapping into the Fiber-to-the-Mobile (FTTM) scenarios.


All the power in one small package

Above all, service providers need an Whitebox OLT that works everywhere and anywhere. Our SDA3016SS2 features:

  • Temperature-hardened operating range
  • ETSI-rack compliant design
  • Hot-swappable fans
  • Redundant power modules

Installation is made easy, whether in street cabinets or data centers, so you can provide the reliable and quality services their customers demand.
