At Genexis we believe everybody deserves to be connected to fiber broadband at their home. In order for everyone to be able to fully connect to fiber, we need to ensure interoperability. Therefore, we develop our products so that they are interoperable in every deployment scenario and in every in-home scenario.
Interoperable with the main OLT vendors
Genexis has been an independent PON ONT vendor since 2013. All our ONTs are interoperable and have been field deployed with the main OLT brands active in the European and North American markets thanks to our own ONT software: InterOS.
In practice, this means that a network operator with multiple OLT vendors in its networks does not need to concern which OLT is on the other end of the ONT. The multiple OLTs can use Genexis ONTs, such as the FiberTwist, because the single firmware image detects which OLT is on the other side and adapts accordingly.
Open software for third parties
Besides the PON interoperability, ensuring no vendor lock-in on the PON side, we ensure interoperability with third parties in other areas as well. For example, with our residential gateways we ensure this through our open software supporting industry standards such as, TR-x69, OpenWrt and the prpl Foundation.
Thanks to our software, based on these open standards, our products seamlessly connect with third party products. Meaning there is no question if the Genexis product will work or connect, as they always will.
No vendor lock-in
When deploying a PON network with a certain OLT, or when using a certain residential gateway, the last thing you want is to be completely locked-in with your future decisions. As an independent vendor, Genexis does the complete opposite. We create products which are fully interoperable to ensure there is no vendor lock-in. We have an open policy, where we always support as many OLTs and third-party residential gateways as possible.
In other words: your choice of today, does not affect your choices in the future.
BBF.247 certified for XGS-PON
The FiberTwist XGS2110x has received the BBF.247 certification. The BBF.247 is an Optical Network Termination (ONT) conformance test plan, with a focus on ONT configuration (OMCI) and QoS. It aims to ensure ONTs maturity and compliance to the market & operators requirements. It paves the way to integration and interoperability (interop).
This means that it helps with the ease of interoperability with the different OLTs in the field. Allowing more complex deployments, dealing with mixed OLTs in a single network, and with less operational technicalities
