In any such vendor choice, I'd say make sure that they have workable
IPv6 before making any major investments. Otherwise, you've got a
dead-end platform that won't serve you very well for very many years.

Due to unforeseen circumstances we need to consider
alternative vendors for our GPON system, moving away
from Motorola. We wanted to throw out a line and find
out what other networks have deployed and what
experiences they have had positive or negative with
them. Thanks in advance for any replies.
We're using Huawei for this.
It's a stable system, and they do this quite well. Watch out
for the EMS though; it's great for management and
provisioning, but customer migration is not supported (yet).
The ONU that ships from Huawei is also not terribly good as
a clever CPE. So if you're thinking of doing interesting
things, suggest you use their ONU as a bridge and have
something else terminating the PPPoE/DHCP sessions.
Otherwise, I'd certainly recommend looking at Huawei for
this. We've been reasonably happy using them for our FTTH
and IPTv deployment.
