2023 SEASON SALE Networking and Security Showcase In-stock ICT products at exclusive discounts

Huawei OLT (optical line termination) series devices provide customers various sub-series for their different needs.

I have introduced the popular series EA5800 before, in this article, I will introduce the SmartAX EA5801 series. (Read the OLT Device Introduction: Huawei SmartAX EA5800 Series)

Huawei OLT SmartAX EA5801 Series Overview

The EA5801 is a compact and low-density box-shaped OLT. It provides GPON or XG-PON&GPON combo access, and supports passive optical LAN (POL) and fiber to the home (FTTH) solutions. It carries all services over one fiber network, simplifying network architecture and reducing OPEX. The EA5801 houses integrated control and service module, 1 pluggable fan module and 2 pluggable power modules. The EA5801 supports two types of subracks: EA5801-GP08 and EA5801-CG04.
