Lightspan DF fiber access nodes

Small access nodes for multi-Gigabit broadband

New generation of fiber access solutions for distributed fiber deployments

Multi-Gigabit networks fulfill the potential of our connected future, open up many possibilities for new services, and give operators reliable value for years to come.  

The Nokia Lightspan DF gives you new flexibility in your fiber deployment and helps optimize the fiber business case. With the Nokia fiber portfolio, you can cost-efficiently address all types of deployments – high volume, high user density with Lightspan FX and Lightspan MF, and lower user density with Lightspan DF and Lightspan SF. This means you can connect users with multi-Gigabit services no matter where they are.

Lightspan DF is the first mini-OLT that supports GPON, XGS-PON and 25G PON in a disaggregated access network architecture. With flexible combinations of PON configurations and stackable deployment options, Lightspan DF enables cost-efficient network evolution today and in the future. As a member of the Lightspan product family, it fully supports SDAN (software-defined access networking) for streamlined operations and reduced OPEX.

Features and benefits

Mini-OLT to connect everyone, everywhere

Multi-Gigabit technology 

Lightspan DF is a high capacity, non-blocking access node supporting GPON, XGS-PON, Multi-PON and 25G PON technology.

Deployment flexibility  

  • Small form factor (1RU) allows efficient deployments in small or lower user density areas, such as central office, cabinets, multi-dwelling units, office buildings, etc.
  • Temperature hardened for outside cabinet deployments.

Easy integration  

  • Standalone operation requires no additional aggregation device.
  • Same SDN software platform as other Lightspan fiber products for simple mix and match.

Automation and agility

Support for software-defined access networking (SDAN) capabilities with Nokia Altiplano, enabling adaptable architectures, streamlined operations, and reduced OPEX.
