Tibit's PON MicroPlug enables standard Ethernet switches to support PON, eliminating PON-specific hardware, thereby reducing footprint and power, while supporting residential and nonresidential applications.


  • CSPs are seeking PON solutions that reduce their reliance on large, power-hungry, application-specific hardware. Tibit's MicroPlug approach, which contains the PON-specific functions, replaces the large OLT chassis, leading to equipment savings along with lower space and power requirements.
  • By plugging into standard switches, Tibit's MicroPlug takes advantage of widely deployed Ethernet switches, supporting PON in central offices, remote nodes, and wireless network locations for the support of MBH.
  • Tibit's Microplug OLT separates hardware functions from software functions; consequently, SDN can be applied to PON, leading to capex and opex savings for CSPs.
