JANUARY 24, 2007 -- ColorChip (search for ColorChip), developer of fiber-optic components based on PLC technology, today announced the availability of GEPON (EPON) diplexer transceivers px10 and px20 as well as a GPON Class A diplexer for the FTTH market.
"This is a big milestone for ColorChip, proving the maturity of ColorChip's SystemOn Glass concept," contends Moshe Price, chief executive officer of ColorChip. "Recently, samples were shipped to some of our customers and more samples will be provided by demand."
ColorChip's transceivers are based on the company's patented SystemOnGlass (SOG) concept, which simplifies the design and manufacturing process compared with traditional bulk-optic offerings. The transceivers support Digital Diagnostic & Monitoring (DDM), providing diagnostic and monitoring capabilities for the device's power supply, temperature, optical power output, and more.
"By supporting DDM, our GEPON and GPON transceivers provide an added value to the network provider," adds Jaime Reloj, vice president of sales at ColorChip. "This functionality delivers remote diagnostics and control over the network. This should reduce the network management cost and provide faster service response."
