The zNID is an intelligent NID supporting GPON termination with full-featured gateway functionality providing an ideal solution for FTTH deployments.
Triple Play services – IPTV, POTS or VoIP, and High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) – over existing coax and/or phone line make service offerings and installations flexible and easy.
No New Home Wiring
The zNID product line is the first gateway on the market to support both HPNA over coax and phone line using two HPNA chipsets giving greater flexibility to service providers who want to take advantage of the network already installed in the user’s home. The zNID is able to guarantee the best throughput possible over the coax network and the phone line network giving added flexibility when offering triple play services. HPNA over the existing coax and the existing phone line simultaneously virtually eliminates the need to run new cables.
The zNID is a full-featured gateway supporting services such as DHCP server, ALG’s, scheduling, comprehensive logging, and more. The zNID product line implements a very flexible QoS allowing the service provider to guarantee that services are being prioritized correctly and the end-user is getting the Quality of Experience that is expected.
The enclosure can be installed in two stages for carriers wanting to terminate fiber before installing the active components. A small plastic enclosure can be installed first allowing the installer to terminate the fiber. Later, when the customer has ordered service, the active components are snapped into the fiber enclosure, allowing for a quick and easy installation.
The zNID has a very intuitive Web interface. The zNID is also managed by the ZMS Network Management System, using SNMP. Software upgrades, or configuration backups are handled automatically by the ZMS. The zNID can also be managed using OMCI, with DZS’ Smart OMCI tool.
