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.
