San Jose, Calif.NeoPhotonics has expanded its portfolio of GPON transceivers that support next-generation FTTP networks with a line of pluggable modules that comply with the ITU-T G.984.5 networking standard to meet the performance and reliability requirements for triple-play access networks.
The new transceivers meet the specifications for the enhanced wavelength allocation plan specified in G.984.5 as well as for the reach extenders that increase the servable PON distance beyond 20 km (from the central office to the customer).
According to NeoPhotonics, 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.
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 comprise a comprehensive line of small form factor transceivers to GPON systems manufacturers.
NeoPhotonics will showcase its new line of GPON transceiver modules at the OFC/NFOEC 2008 Conference and Exhibition in booth 2339 of the San Diego Convention Center, from February 26th through the 28th.
