Alphion India Private Ltd. has launched the AOLT-4200, small-form factor, optical line terminal (OLT) that specifically addresses rural broadband and mobile backhaul applications. While the OLT was launched in India, the company plans to market it worldwide, an Alphion source confirms.

“The AOLT-4200 platform was developed at our Research and Design centers in Mumbai and Chennai to meet the unique requirements of the rural broadband environment and is being locally manufactured by our partner in Sriperumbudir, Tamil Nadu,” said Dr. Bharat P. Dave, chairman and managing director of Alphion India. “The platform also includes the critical timing features needed for wireless mobile backhaul. The ability to efficiently backhaul large amounts of data through GPON-based access networks solves a major constraint for today’s and future wireless networks. The AOLT-4200 addresses the bottlenecks and inefficiencies created in wireless backhaul networks as broadband access becomes dominant in base station backhaul and the size of the wireless cells decreases.”

Fully compliant with IEEE 1588V2 Precision Time Protocol standard for base station timing and synchronization, the AOLT-4200 platform supports both legacy TDM circuit-switched transport through pseudo-wire emulation and next-generation packet-switched transport through native Ethernet over SynchE. The product line also provides assured availability through GPON’s optional network protection switching mechanisms.

Alphion India says its GPON product range enables the convergence of wireless and wire-line networks as it is suitable for distribution of any-play voice, high-speed Internet, virtual private network (VPN) data, Ethernet Line (ELINE), Ethernet LAN (ELAN), video services (IPTV), rural broadband, and mobile datacom applications.
