Lightspan DF Fiber Access Nodes
Small access nodes for multi-Gigabit broadband
A 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 is a family of optical line terminals (OLT) that gives you new flexibility in your fiber deployments and helps optimize the business case. With the Nokia OLT fiber portfolio, you can cost-efficiently address all types of deployments: high volume, high user density with Lightspan FX and Lightspan MF; lower user density with Lightspan DF and Lightspan SF. This means you can connect users with multi-Gigabit services no matter where they are.
The Lightspan DF nodes are mini-OLTs that support GPON, XGS-PON and 25G PON in a distributed or disaggregated access network architecture. With flexible combinations of PON configurations and stackable deployment options, Lightspan DF OLTs enable cost-efficient network evolution today and in the future. As members of the Lightspan family, they fully support SDAN (software-defined access networking) for streamlined operations and reduced OPEX.
Features and benefits
Mini-OLT to connect everyone, everywhere
- Lightspan DF OLTs are high capacity, non-blocking access nodes supporting GPON, XGS-PON, Multi-PON and 25G PON technology.
- Small form factor (1RU) allows efficient deployments in small or lower user density areas, such as central offices, cabinets, multi-dwelling units, office buildings, etc.
- Supports distributed and disaggregated architectures.
- Port density options.
- Temperature hardened for outside cabinet deployments.
- Based on the Nokia Quillion chipset, Lightspan DF OLTs consume >20% less power than the industry average.
Automation and agility
- Support for software-defined access networking (SDAN) capabilities with Nokia Altiplano, enabling adaptable architectures, streamlined operations, and reduced OPEX.
