PMG2005-T20E, GPON ONT with 1-port GbE LAN

Flexibility that boosts the efficiency of the existing infrastructure

The bridge/router function allows Zyxel PMG2005-T20E to be configured as an SFU or HGU. This allows service providers to start a new deployment or upgrade their service by connecting to the subscriber’s existing broadband router. This dual-mode flexibility not only minimizes the CAPEX, but also saves future costs when service demand or deployment scenarios change.

Excellent user experience with customizable product combinations

Adding Zyxel PMG2005-T20E into the network as a Layer-2 ONT can help service providers to meet different subscribers’ demands as it leaves room for further customization by adding any Layer-3 device based on the deployment needs.
