A FTTH GPON deployment is fully passive once you are outside of the OLT. 
It's just fiber and optical splitters all the way to the home. It is 
possible to have the OLT in a shelter away from the CO but given that 
you can push the signal out ~15-20 miles of fiber I have never seen it 
done. All of the FTTH deployments I have touched have been fully passive.
