9th GPON Interoperability Test Event

CATR and ETSI jointly hosted the FSAN GPON Interoperability Event #9 which was held in Beijing, China from 16-20 November 2009.
This Test Event gave participating FSAN Vendors the opportunity to test the maturity of their product using a global test architecture provided by the organizing Companies.
By using various service architectures, GPON vendors were able to improve their capability of providing Ethernet-based services in a full OMCI context.

The focus was on verifying correct implementations of the ITU-T OMCI Implementers' guide (OMCI is the Optical Network Termination (ONT) Management and Control Interface). The testing was a useful validation of the clarity and consistency of that guide. This gives an assurance that future implementations based on the guide should be 'plug and play
