NeoPhotonics unveils pluggable GPON transceivers

Oct. 1, 2007
OCTOBER 1, 2007 -- Neophotonics says its ITU-T G.984.2-compliant Class B+ standard pluggable GPON transceivers augment its portfolio of FTTH biplexers and triplexers.

OCTOBER 1, 2007 -- NeoPhotonics (search for NeoPhotonics) today announced a new line of pluggable GPON transceivers, compliant with the ITU-T G.984.2 Class B+ standard, to augment its portfolio of biplexer and triplexer modules used in fiber-to-the-premises (search for FTTP) networks around the world. The new line includes SFP biplexers for FTTP central office, or optical line terminal (OLT) applications as well as modules for use in optical networking units (ONU), which are located at the customer premises. Together, the OLT and ONU devices offer a complete line of pluggable transceivers to GPON systems manufacturers, say NeoPhotonics representatives.
Pluggable transceivers give systems designers more flexibility in configuring their platforms for different network applications and allow higher port densities as they physically separate the optical interface from the rest of the system hardware.
"As part of our strategy to be a broad-based supplier for optical access solutions, these pluggable GPON transceivers are designed to complement our current portfolio of FTTP products," explains Tim Jenks, chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. "They comply with the latest ITU-T G.984.2 Class B+ specifications to meet the performance and reliability requirements for triple-play access networks. Our GPON transceiver line also builds on our experience in several segments of the optical access market, leveraging our conventional as well as our PLC capabilities, and underscores our commitment to innovation and technology leadership in optical components," he contends.

NeoPhotonics is showcasing its pluggable GPON transceiver modules this week at the FTTH Conference and Expo in Orlando, FL, where the company is exhibiting its full portfolio of FTTP products in Booth 901 from October 1-3.
