Fiberxon to showcase GPON OLT transceiver with fast RSSI at OFC/NFOEC

March 15, 2007
MARCH 15, 2007 -- The new OLT transceiver product is designed to help FTTH operators monitor the received optical signal strength from each ONT within 5 microns and supports 2.488 Gbits/sec downstream and 1.244 Gbits/sec upstream asymmetrically.

MARCH 15, 2007 -- Fiberxon (search for Fiberxon) today announced the availability of a GPON (search for GPON) optical line terminal (OLT) transceiver with fast digital receive signal strength indicator (RSSI) functionality for high-speed and high-capacity access network applications.

The new OLT transceiver product is designed to help FTTH operators monitor the received optical signal strength from each ONT within 5 µsec and supports 2.488 Gbits/sec downstream and 1.244 Gbits/sec upstream asymmetrically. The recently released products are available in both small form factor (SFF) and small form factor pluggable (SFP), working at 1490-nm and 1310-nm wavelength respectively.

These products will be in display in Booth #1401 at OFC/NFOEC next week in Anaheim, CA, March 27-29, 2007.

"The OLT transceiver with fast digital RSSI functionality is a new addition to our full portfolio of GPON product line offerings. We are pleased that we are able to bring such high-performance products to the market, and will continue to dedicate resources to R&D for technology innovations and full support to our customers," said Dr. Charpen Zhang, vice president of PON PLG at Fiberxon.

"With these functionalities, FTTH operators can lower their operational expenditure by monitoring the real-time status of the optical distribution network (ODN), even down to every single optical network terminal," he added.

Fiberxon OLT transceivers with fast digital RSSI have been tested according to related product safety and electromagnetic compatibility regulations of the U.S. and European Community. They are RoHS compliant.
