New IEEE Std 802.3ca™ was approved by the IEEE-SA Standards Board on June 4, 2020. The standard defines two Physical Layer (PHY) specifications that support 25 Gb/s and 50 Gb/s EPON operation over a single strand of single-mode optical fiber and calls out two new EPON architectures — 25G-EPON and 50G-EPON.
Bend-insensitive fibers significantly reduce #microbend and #macrobend losses across the entire wavelength spectrum used by current and future PON. There are two types of bend-insensitivity: Millimetre-range macrobend-insensitivity and Micrometre-range microbend-insensitivity. While #BendBrightXS fibres were initially developed with macrobend-insensitivity in mind, they also outperform all other existing fibre types for microbend-insensitivity. BendBrightXS fibres support the full use of transmission bands, covering the entire wavelength spectrum: from 1260 nm to 1625 nm for data transmission, and up to 1675 nm for network monitoring.
Register now to join Tellabs monthly “Optical LAN Tech Talk” webinar series scheduled for the first Thursday, at 11:00 am ET, of every month in 2020. These 30-minute webinars will feature interactive dialogue focused on enterprise Optical LAN’s new software, hardware and best practices.
McGough’s new, modern corporate headquarters includes a Tellabs Optical LAN solution that successfully delivers flexibility in support of their network connectivity in a spacious, productive, healthy and smart modern workplace. The POL speeds IT staff productivity with simplification, reduces network vulnerability points and offers the best network capacity and connectivity density.
Churches require a reliable, high-performance and scalable LANs that can withstand the test of time and deliver virtually unlimited bandwidth as applications and services evolve. That’s why church integrators need to stay up with the latest technology, such as the passive optical network (PON) and passive optical LAN (POL).
Starting a few years ago at Chicago’s Union Station and then in Baltimore and Washington DC, Amtrak equipped its new headquarters with a future-proof optical, advanced GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) and Digital Electric systems. This gave their newly renovated facility a highly efficient, resilient and cost-effective network that provides a wide range of high bandwidth telecommunications capabilities at gigabit speeds.
Tellabs and EXFO demonstrate a fiber-based enterprise LAN, designed using Passive Optical Networking technology, that can economically support one gigabit to ten gigabit connectivity speeds simultaneously over existing infrastructure to satisfy the ever-increasing network densities and capacities demanded by today’s modern smart buildings.
For many new FTTH operator entrants or expanding FTTH network operators, the choice to use next-generation 10G PON is as simple as having the ability to disrupt the market by offering gigabit rates as the entry-level service and 2-, 5-, and even 10-Gbit/sec residential service rates as options. Having the ability to advertise higher speeds than those supported by competing DOCSIS 3.1, 5G or GFast market rollouts protect market share and provide differentiation versus competing single gigabit service offers.
This year’s two APOLAN Award winners highlight the innovation, education and promotion driving POL to the future: The US Army received an award for the “World’s Largest Remote Powered POL Network at Fort Belvoir and Nokia was recognized for the industry’s first deployment of XGS PON in student housing.
Tellabs 1RU Tellabs FlexSym ONT248 offers a 48-port Ethernet switch capability that can be connected to a passive optical LAN as well as reuse existing copper horizontals. Each port supports up to 60 W of Power over Ethernet, which is limited only by the capacity of the redundant modular hot-swappable power supplies installed. The platform is XGS-PON compatible, meaning it can support symmetrical 10-Gbps downstream and upstream connections.
