Ciena’s 3805 XGS-PON Weatherproof Optical Network Unit (ONU) is purpose-built for residential and Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) applications with low-cost access in mind. The ruggedized residential broadband service delivery ONU is lightning fast, secure, and capable of meeting or exceeding both immediate and future business needs enabled by flexible, open deployment within 10G PON and Ciena’s universal aggregation routing and switching platforms.

Why 3805?

The 3805 XGS-PON outdoor ONU is fully compliant with ITU-T G.9807.1 (XGS-PON) and supports symmetrical 10 Gb/s downstream and upstream connectivity. This weatherproof ONU comes with built-in XGS-PON optics and Media Access Control (MAC), an Ethernet switch, and one 10/100/1000/2500M RJ-45 port. With low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in mind, the outdoor shared fiber ONU reduces edge transport, switching and routing costs, footprint, and power consumption by rightsizing with high-density Optical Line Terminal (OLT) platforms.
