Metanoia CPE Smart Migration
As broadband access technologies have evolved rapidly, Service Providers needed to upgrade their broadband network services every few years to meet the increasing demands. Traditionally, Service Providers have to replace the whole CPE device in order to provide faster internet speed to the subscribers. It not only increases their CAPEX and OPEX but also requires more time and resources to deploy.
After realizing this issue, Metanoia integrated the Physical layer (PHY) of some broadband access technologies within an Small-Form Factor Pluggable (SFP). Metanoia PHY SFPs can be integrated with any router, switch or residential gateway that has an SFP cage, as a type of WAN. With this approach, there is no need for Service Providers to maintain more than one type of CPE device in the field or in the warehouse anymore.
Moreover, this also provides future upgrade capabilities. Users can easily upgrade to any broadband access technology supporting desired data rate, simply by plugging in different type of WAN SFPs such as VDSL2 35b / G.fast or even optical TRx SFPs within the same CPE box and using the same user interface. Leveraging Metanoia’s PHY SFP series in Service Providers’ products portfolio will help them to significantly reduce the software porting effort and shorten their product time-to-market.
