NeoPhotonics Unveils Portfolio of Pluggable GPON Transceivers to Facilitate Access Network Evolution
(Nanowerk News) NeoPhotonics announced today 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” (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.
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.
NeoPhotonics is showcasing its pluggable GPON transceiver modules at the FTTH Council Conference and Expo in Orlando, Florida, where the company is exhibiting its full portfolio of FTTP products in booth 901 from October 1st to October 3rd.
“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,” said 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.”
NeoPhotonics Corporation is a leading developer and vertically integrated manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit based components, modules and subsystems for use in telecommunications networks. Our products include active semiconductor, passive PLC and MEMS multi-dimensional switching functions in a single product. This integration is enabled by integration, nanomaterials and nanoscale design and fabrication technologies. Backed by leading venture capital firms and institutional investors, NeoPhotonics maintains headquarters in San Jose, California and ISO 9001:2000 certified engineering and manufacturing facilities in Silicon Valley and Shenzhen, China.
