Alcatel-Lucent adds new features to 7342 ISAM FTTU system

Alcatel-Lucent has added three new features to its 7342 ISAM fiber-to-the-user system, covering optical monitoring, metro ethernet connectivity and remote synchronization capabilities.

According to the company, the inclusion of new optical monitoring features will enable critical parameters to be measured and recorded for analysis over time. This is expected to allow early detection of degradation of optical components and optical fiber in the outside plant, often before service-affecting failures arise and customer satisfaction is impacted.

In addition to optical performance monitoring, the Alcatel-Lucent fiber-to-the-user (FTTU) platform is now able to connect with metro ethernet networks by providing a set of options for virtual private networking and ethernet connectivity.

The third feature added is relates to IEEE 1588 timing. This feature is expected to provide necessary synchronization for remote placement of gigabit passive optical network (GPON) systems in outside plant and connectivity of DS1 services.

Ron Westfall, research director at Current Analysis, said: The new 7342 ISAM FTTU system capabilities, such as Received Signal Strength Indication optical test and measurement enhancements, support of emerging metro ethernet forum -based services, and IEEE 1588 timing for remote GPON OLT synchronization applications, demonstrate that Alcatel-Lucent continues to effectively meet the evolving challenges of operators in the highly competitive FTTx equipment market segment.
