The GPON protocols are supported by SFP transceivers, and are specified for both Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and Optical Network Unit (ONU) usages. 10G EPON protocols are supported by both SFP Plus and XFP transceivers; the SFP Plus is specified for both OLT and ONU, while the XFP is specified for OLT use only. “With the advent of streaming video and other high-speed services, the need for higher bandwidth continues to fuel growth in demand for FTTP applications.
