The Cisco Optical Network Terminator (ONT) 1000 Gigabit Ethernet Series enables service providers to build metro access networks with Gigabit Ethernet. This remotely manageable, environmentally hardened device provides a cost-effective demarcation point between the service provider and customer networks. The Cisco ONT 1031 is the first product in this series and converts between 1000BASE-LX in the service provider network and 10/100/1000BASE-T at the customer network. The copper interface reduces the capital investment in the home or business network gateway, and the customer or service provider saves the investment in the fiber connectivity while being able to activate new services by upgrading an inexpensive, all-copper gateway.
