MARCH 24, 2009 -- NeoPhotonics (search Lightwave for NeoPhotonics) has unveiled a new line of pluggable GPON optical line terminal (OLT) transceivers, compliant with the ITU-T G.984.5 Class B+ and C+ networking standards, to augment its portfolio of GPON modules used in FTTP networks.
The pluggable OLT transceivers are additions to the company's existing GPON modules for OLTs and optical networking units (ONUs), which are deployed in central offices and at customer premises, respectively.
The devices cover both Class B+ and C+ link budgets, feature receive signal strength indicators (RSSIs) and advanced monitoring capabilities and meet commercial (C-Temp) and industrial temperature (I-Temp) grade specifications. Advanced monitoring features allow early fault location and reduce downtime in system operation, says NeoPhotonics.
Tim Jenks, chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics, says, "Our GPON transceiver line meets the stringent performance and reliability requirements for triple-play access networks and builds on our experience in several segments of the optical access market. We leverage both our conventional manufacturing as well as our 'PIC,' or photonic integrated circuit, capabilities, which embody our commitment to innovation and technology leadership in optical components."
Chris Pfistner, NeoPhotonics' vice president of product marketing, is chairing the Service Provider Summit and Market Watch Programs during the conference and will moderate the session "FTTH -- Advancing on Many Fronts" on Wednesday, March 25 from 11:45 am to 1:15 pm on the exhibition floor.
NeoPhotonics will showcase its GPON transceiver modules alongside several other products at OFC/NFOEC 2009, in Booth #1126 of the San Diego Convention Center, from March 24-26.
