The Positron GAM leverages a non-blocking CE 2.0 Carrier Ethernet Core to reliably deliver managed Gigabit services. The GAM is a Fiber to the Distribution Point (FTTdp) solution that is typically installed inside a wiring closet. Each GAM comes with multiple 10 Gigabit SFP+ interfaces to support any type of fiber or PON standards (using an ONT as required). These SFP+ ports are also used to support additional GAM devices in medium to large MDUs and share the fiber backhaul link.
With the Positron GAM, high-speed Gigabit Internet Services are more stable, reducing support calls and customer churn. The GAM software extends its management capabilities to the G.hn end-point (aka G.hn to Ethernet Bridge) devices to simplify and eliminate the more complex functions of the Residential Gateway. The GAM hardware enforces per-subscriber bandwidth profiles and guarantees a fair and balanced use of the backhaul link at all times including for value-added services such as IPTV, Streaming and Telephony. Its extensive support for VLAN (including Q-in-Q) allows for seamless integration with the Operator fiber services and the OSS and BSS functions already in place. The Service OAM capabilities of the GAM provide real-time information to the Operator about the overall grade of services without any additional cost or complexity.
With hardware-assisted synchronization to improve the efficiency of Vectoring, the GAM optimizes the bandwidth for each subscriber based on the real-time condition.
