Mar. 14, 2001--BroadLight Inc. announced a new technology that provides a series of digital Fiber Optic Burst transceivers for single fiber Point-to-Multi-Point applications such as PON, Ethernet PON and GigE.

BroadLight Inc. announced a new technology that provides a series of digital Fiber Optic Burst transceivers for single fiber Point-to-Multi-Point applications such as PON, Ethernet PON and GigE.

BBT is a series of Bi-directional Optical Burst Transceivers supporting bit rates from 155Mbps up to 1.25Gbps Upstream and from 155Mbps up to 1.25 Gbps Downstream, in one integrated module. The BBT optical series modules are integrated optical circuits based on Integrated Composed Material (ICM) consisting of active optical functionality as well as an analog front-end.

Applications are intended for Point-to-Multi-Point such as BroadLight's xPON technology, APON and EPON applications, FTTB (fiber-to-the-business) applications, FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) applications, WDM implementation and any other Point-to-Multi-Point applications as well as for extending and complementing existing MSPP platforms of SONET SDH, xDSL and GigE.

The BBT series is a group of eight types of transceivers providing WDM Bi-directional 1300/1550nm, CDR, APC, ATC, Preamp, Limteramp and Flexible data rates up to 1.25 Gbps in one small compact module.

BroadLight Inc. will be exhibiting at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference (OFC) from March 19-22 in booth no. 4440.
