 HUAWEI SmartAX EA5800 (EA5800-X17/EA5800-X15/EA5800-X7/EA5800-X2) 10G GPON OLT


Product Overview


Developed based on the distributed architecture, the EA5800 series multi-service access device is positioned as the next-generation OLT for NG-PON. With virtual access technology, it provides a unified carrying platform for multiple services over one fiber network, such as broadband, wireless, video, and monitoring.

The EA5800 provides GPON, XG-PON, XGS-PON, P2P 10GE/GE access, and supports POL, FTTH, FTTB, and FTTC network construction modes. Thus it simplifies network architecture and reduces OPEX.


Product Appearance


The EA5800 supports four types of subracks. The only difference between these subracks relies on the service slot quantity (they have the same functions and network positions).

EA5800-X17 (large-capacity, ETSI)

EA5800-X17 supports 17 service slots with backplane H901BPLB.

EA5800-X15 (large-capacity, IEC)

EA5800-X15 supports 15 service slots with backplane H901BPIB.

EA5800-X7 (medium-capacity)

EA5800-X7 supports 7 service slots with backplane H901BPMB.

EA5800-X2 (small-capacity)

EA5800-X2 supports 2 service slots with backplane H901BPSB.

Product Highlights


Distributed Architecture: High Performing and Non-blocking

The EA5800 distributes service processing on the control board to every service board, improving system switching capacity and performance. Each slot can support a throughput of up to 100 Gbit/s, ensuring smooth services without interruption.

The EA5800 supports distributed caching for channel zapping and fast starting of HD videos.

Software Hitless Upgrade: Upgrade Anytime

In the distributed architecture, control and forwarding are isolated, ensuring that services are not interrupted during device upgrades. This also reduces user complaints. Devices can be upgraded at daytime.

High Reliability

The EA5800 supports multiple protection mechanisms.

  • Type B/type C dual-homing implements remote disaster recovery.
  • 2 control boards and 2 power boards for redundancy.
  • Dual-uplink protection.

Integrated Multiple Access Technologies

The EA5800 supports multiple access technologies, such as GPON and P2P 10GE/GE. Thus it is possible to carry multiple services on one optical network and save network construction costs.
