Passive Optical Networks (PON)

The passive optical network (PON) is an unpowered broadband telecom network which is based entirely on telecom passive devices from the central office (CO) to optical network terminal (ONT) at the end-user side.

Normally, POfotolia_75348583N is using point-to-multipoint (P2MP) fibre optic connections that include optical line terminals (OLT), fibre distribution frames (FDF), fibre patch panels, optical splitters, optical fibre distribution hubs, and optical network terminals (ONT)

What is M2M?

Machine to machine (M2M) refers to data communications (wireless/wired) between two or more smart electronic devices/machines. Many utility, drilling, oil and gas companies have been using M2M communications in the field to collect, assess, fotolia_55741280and setup process variables as part of the advanced control and monitoring systems. However, several high-tech manufactures are working together in order to standardize the Messaging Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol as an OASIS standard protocol for the Machine-to-Machine (M2M)/Internet of Things (IoT).
