A Passive Optical Network (PON) is a network in which you have a single provider that might be sending different traffic streams to many receivers. The advantage is the sender sends the traffic on the same link and different streams arrive at the receivers because the networks split the light beams using mirrors and prisms. This is also described as unpowered networking. The following components can be found in a PON infrastructure:
- OLT (Optical Line Terminal): devices at the sender and receiver sides
- ONT (Optical Network Terminal): devices that split the light beams before the signal . . .
