Product Description

The FTTx PON Simulator from AFL is designed to simulate a wide variety of FTTx PON architectures. It is field-configurable to implement both single splitter and distributed splitter PONs, including:


  • Single splitter PON: 1x16, 1x32, 1x64, 1x128
  • Distributed splitter PON: 1x4 + 1x8, 1x4 + 1x16, 2 x 1x8.


The field-portable FTTx PON Demo Kit may be used for lab or table-top FTTx PON demonstration, evaluation, and testing applications.  The demo kit includes:


  • Multiple splitters with split ratios of 1x2, 1x4, and 1x8;
  • 4 km fibre network with connector, splice and macro-bend events;
  • Fibre rings in various lengths up to 1 km to simulate distribution and drop fibres;
  • Jumper cables and bulkhead adapters to configure various PON architectures;
  • Splitters, fibre rings, and fibre network are terminated with SC/APC connectors;
  • OLS7-FTTH 1310/1490/1550 laser source simulates downstream traffic at 1490 & 1550 nm;
  • Rolling, hard-shell carry case.


The FTTx PON Demo Kit is designed for a variety of users and applications, including:


  • Network designers: Configure and test various PON architectures in a lab environment
  • Fibre Optic installation teams and trainers: Develop, verify and practice PON test methods
  • Equipment manufacturers: Test and verify FTTx PON equipment designs on various PON configurations
  • Sales engineers: Enable field-portable demonstrations of FTTx PON network and test equipment.
