JUNE 19, 2007 -- Motorola Inc. has unveiled the next generation of its high-density all-IP optical access platform's support of Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON), a 200-Gbit advanced switching architecture with onboard high-capacity single and 10-Gbit WAN interfaces.

JUNE 19, 2007 -- Motorola Inc. (search for Motorola) at NXTcomm 2007 has unveiled the next generation of its high-density all-IP optical access platform's support of Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (GPON), a 200-Gbit advanced switching architecture with onboard high-capacity single and 10-Gbit WAN interfaces and support of 10 Gbits to each application unit, resulting in full GPON line-rate throughput to the access network.

Motorola is also introducing an intelligent and fully featured line of small business, high-density multi-dwelling units (MDUs) and both indoor and outdoor single-family home GPON optical network terminals (ONTs).

The new GPON portfolio builds on Motorola's AXS2200 optical access technology to expand available WAN and access network throughput capacity needed for the delivery of advanced ultrabroadband services. According to the company, both the platform hardware and software have shown high performance and reliability in successful, large-scale video, broadband Internet, and voice deployments. Built to seamlessly support fast growth in unicast video content and ultrabroadband Internet access, the GPON architecture supports dynamic video traffic patterns and sustained subscriber throughput of 200 Mbits/sec symmetrical -- with burst rate capacity of up to 400 Mbits/sec.

"Our next-generation optical access platform is video-optimized and designed to power advanced services into the connected home," says Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing, Motorola Home and Networks Mobility. "Ultrabroadband capacity is crucial as demand grows for high-definition content, time-shifted television, and converged IP applications."

The optical access platform includes the high-density, multiprotocol AXS2200 and the AXS1800 optical line terminals (OLTs) as well as intelligent ONTs. This technology was first deployed in the United States for hybrid RF and IPTV implementations in 2005.
