GPON Certification

The story behind GPON Certification

Certification demonstrates interoperability between multiple chipsets and product combinations

The success of GPON technologies has taken a significant step forward with the launch of the market’s first ever BBF.247 GPON Certification Program. To help the industry expedite fiber network rollout, this global BBF.247 GPON ONU Certification program paved the way for swift expansion of superfast broadband and the development of new technologies. It is based on test plans developed by the Broadband Forum and work undertaken jointly with FSAN (Full Service Access Network).

In 2013 the BBF.247 certification program was expanded to address a variety of ONUs; testing various VLAN profiles and functionality. The program is open to all GPON ONU products with Ethernet interfaces and is based on the Broadband Forum’s ATP-247/IR-247 test plan. it tests conformance to TR-156 using OMCI as defined in the ITU G.988, which are the most critical standards to interoperable implementations. Additional test cases and modules for other configurations and functionalities will be added in the future to keep up with evolving requirements.

The Broadband Forum has reviewed and authorized the following independent testing agency to administer the approved BBF.247 tests and assess eligibility of products for the Broadband Forum Certification.
