At Zhone, Bandwidth Changes Everything™ is more than just a tag line. It is our focus, our fundamental belief and philosophy in developing carrier-grade broadband solutions for our customers ensuring bandwidth is never a constraint in the future. At Zhone, our holistic focus is on the transformation and enhancement of connectivity, providing the foundation for advanced communications and improving the overall communications experience for our customers and their subscribers.


Zhone has long been a pioneer in the industry with its broadband and multi-service access solution offerings. Zhone is at the forefront of technology innovation today, with large-scale global deployments of its high-capacity FTTx multi-service systems including the MXK, MALC and zNID ONTs which are designed to provide high performance and cost-effective solutions for the operator’s bandwidth requirements.

Optical LAN Solutions

Zhone’s Powerful Passive Optical LAN Solution provides compelling benefits over the traditional router/switch approach. Tremendous saving are realized in every aspect of a deployment including equipment cost, building power, cooling, installation/cabling, management and floor space.


The term "Multi-Service" is widely used and claimed in the industry today. The value of multi-service solutions for the service provider is in the ability of key services and technologies being supported on a single system, with the latter being developed on industry standards and specifications and interoperable with other standards-based network elements. Zhone has been a pioneer in the transition towards multi-service solutions and provided its customers with tremendous CAPEX and OPEX savings along with time-to-market advantage with new, revenue-generating applications and services.

Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM)

Zhone offers leading Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) solutions based on IEEE 802.3ah industry standards. In 2006, the industry adopted new 802.3ah EFM standards. Zhone has been a pioneer and leader in this area, supplying Ethernet over Copper (EoC) solutions for many years. Zhone’s EFM solution provides service providers with a tremendous ROI due to the utilization of existing copper infrastructure, simplicity in installation and provisioning, high reliability with minimal downtime, ease of management and overall CAPEX savings.

Mobile Backhaul

Zhone delivers cost-effective mobile backhaul upgrade solutions for its customers with a carrier-class solution designed to address mobile operators’ increased bandwidth needs in today’s data-centric service environment. With the convergence of Internet, wireless and broadband services redefining network requirements, the new Zhone FiberCell solution - in combination with the MXK platform - will offer high-performance bandwidth resources to help operators manage higher traffic loads on their existing network infrastructure.
