VICTORIA, B.C. – (September 20, 2022) – Vecima Networks Inc. (TSX: VCM) today announced the official launch of its Entra® EXS1610 All-PON™ 10G solution. The EXS1610 supports a variety of widely deployed PON standards, including XGS-PON, GPON, 10G-EPON, and EPON. Combo PON support is also included for simultaneous support of XGS-PON and GPON.

Named by Dell’Oro Group as the market share leader for Remote Optical Line Terminals (OLTs), Vecima expands its Fiber Access portfolio with a flexible, compact, and powerful shelf-based platform that supports all predominantly deployed Passive Optical Network (PON) variants.

Service providers can shorten time to market, deliver fiber broadband services faster, and support key deployment use cases, including greenfield, hot-spot brownfields, rural, hybrid fiber coax (HFC) overbuild, footprint extension, and hub collapse with the Vecima PON solution portfolio.

The Vecima Entra EXS1610 All-PON shelf is a key solution component of Vecima’s industry-leading Unified Access product portfolio that allows customers to selectively deploy both Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) (Remote PHY, Remote MACPHY) and FTTP in any market or hub deployment, allowing maximum flexibility for customers to deploy both Cable Access and Fiber Access solutions based on specific subscriber need.

The Vecima EXS1610 provides technically robust features for today’s Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) service providers:

  • 16 x PON ports: XGS-PON/GPON (Combo PON) and 1G/10G-EPON
  • Uplink optics: 2 x 100/40G & 2 x 25/10G with broad third-party optics support
  • Multi-vendor optical network terminal (ONT) interoperability
  • 300mm depth designed for ETSI-rack
  • 1+1 AC or DC power redundancy
  • Temperature-hardened shelf for OSP deployments

In addition to an industry-leading platform feature set, Vecima provides best-in-class support for third-party ONTs through a comprehensive ONT/ONU (optical network unit) interoperability program. This ensures no single PON vendor lock-in to specific customer premises equipment (CPE) and enables industry-leading investment protection. New ONT/ONU vendors are added regularly based on industry standards.

“The Entra EXS1610 All-PON Shelf is an extension of Vecima’s award-winning and market-leading PON solution offerings,” said Vijay Raman, Vice President of Fiber Access Product Line Management at Vecima. “We believe our open and flexible support of multiple PON variants, and our shelf and node platforms offer a variety of fiber-to-the-premises deployment options for our existing and future customers.”

To schedule a demonstration of the Entra® EXS1610 All-PON™ Shelf, visit Vecima Networks at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2022, September 20-22, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, Booth #7085 or contact Vecima at

The Vecima Distributed Access Architecture (DAA) product portfolio, recently recognized by the Dell’Oro Group as the North America market share leader in Remote MACPHY and 10G-EPON Remote OLT solutions, is deployed by operators around the world. With full support for all next-generation cable access technologies, high-value legacy services, and proven industry leading interoperability, the networks of tomorrow are deployable today without compromise.
