Dual-band Wireless AC/N GPON HGU with 4-port GbE LAN

The Zyxel PMG5617GA is a dual-band wireless ONT Home Gateway Unit (HGU) fully compliant with ITU-T G.984 and Wireless IEEE 802.11ac/n that provides ultra high-speed fiber access along with 4-ports GbE LAN for wired connection, 2-port FXS for VOIP services, one USB 2.0 port and 2x2 11AC and 2x2 11N Wireless LAN configuration.


Unlimited possibility with GPON fiber

Internet evolves rapidly as more and more services and applications keep on their pace of innovation. With the continuous growth of smart homes, high-definition TV, virtual reality and augmented reality, the need for higher transmission speed is growing quickly as well. To meet the bandwidth demand, GPON is an essential technology to help service providers satisfying bandwidth demands not only for now, but also for the future. With the one-time investment on fiber, service providers can deploy future-proof, all IP-based networks with lower management cost.

Lower OPEX with Zyxel OMCI & APS

The Zyxel PMG5617GA Dual-Band Wireless AC/N GPON HGU with 4-port GbE LAN comes with the Zyxel-specific OMCI parameter that works perfectly with Zyxel’s own EMS and OLT systems. With the E2E-capable parameters, Zyxel provides not only the standard parameters defined by OMCI, but also some specific parameters that help service providers to diagnose, operate and manage their fiber networks.

Together with Zyxel’s E2E EMS & OLT system, the Zyxel ONT supports a unique auto-provisioning feature that helps service providers to easily provision WAN and VoIP configurations without sending technicians to the field for configuration setups.

Superior coverage with unique concurrent dual-band wireless circuit design

As the number of wireless home devices increases, wireless LAN is becoming the key of resident connectivity and the major factor for service providers to differentiate their services. Since access data rate of the WAN is no longer a bottleneck for end users with GPON technology, operators are looking for higher WiFi transmission speeds to ensure high-speed data and multimedia applications can reach every corner in homes or offices.

Leveraging the expertise from the development of Zyxel’s professional wireless AP, Zyxel’s PMG5617GA not only adopts the latest 802.11ac technology, but also comes with optimized WiFi circuit design to ensure superior, stable wireless performance on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. With Front-end Module (FEM) on board, the PMG5617GA can further enhance the transmission power and receiver linearity to improve the overall wireless coverage for guaranteed seamless WiFi experience that leads to better customer satisfaction.

Zyxel OPAL firmware offers better flexibility and faster time to market

By adopting same OPAL firmware trunk applied in the Zyxel CPE, the Zyxel PMG5617GA inherits a rich, field-proven feature set such as TR-069, VoIP and more. Service providers can now expect the same user experience when they migrate from the original DSL CPE to Fiber devices. Furthermore, the lab qualification time can be substantially reduced by using the same OPAL firmware trunk.

CPE is pivotal for many service providers to provision value-added services as more and more applications are coming to home and business environments. As a flexible, future–proof software platform, OPAL is a modular software architecture and open framework that provides the flexibility for easy feature tailoring to assure all the application requests can be addressed.
