Source Photonics unveils CWDM GPON OLT, ONT product family

Allows service providers to expand their bandwidth with minimum investment

By CBR Staff Writer

Source Photonics, a provider of optical communication products used in telecommunication systems and data communication networks, has unveiled the CWDM (Coarse Wavelength Division Multiplexing) GPON OLT and ONT product family.

The company said that the CWDM GPON OLT and ONT offerings enables to expand the total capacity to 10Gb/s or beyond in gigabit passive optical networks (GPON), and is based on the existing GPON technology using multiple CWDM channels to expand the total capacity in the single fiber.

The CWDM provides a flexible network architecture and pay-as-you-go service providers, that delivers an increased bandwidth from 2.5Gb/s to 12.5Gb/s downstream and from 1.25Gb/s to 6.25Gb/s upstream.

In addition, the CWDM GPON transceivers are compliant with the existing GPON ITU standard G.984.2.

Source Photonics product line management senior director Darron Young said that with continuing bandwidth demand to support internet video and 3G wireless network growth, 10G EPON and XG-PON are emerging in the market.

"However, 10G PON technology has not yet reached maturity and a competitive cost point. Our CWDM GPON transceivers are based on the existing mature GPON products, and provide an immediate, alternative solution to allow service providers to expand their bandwidth with minimum investment," Young added.
