The splitter, also called a passive optical splitter, contains glass elements that act as a prism to divide (or split) the optical light into multiple identical waves of signals down individual fibres which are connected to an Optical Network Unit (ONU). The ONU receives downstream data through the splitter to provide video, voice, and broadband services to the consumer in work, home, or travel and leisure use cases.

Open-use ONUs (Optical Network Units) offer high-speed fibre services to global ISPs and service providers. As part of a wider configuration, they deliver triple-play services (data, voice and video over IP) for business and residential users.
