White Paper: BendBright XS Whitepaper

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.

Amtrak overhauls passenger rail communications with OCC’s hybrid GPON fiber/copper system

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 10G Passive Optical LAN demo

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.

Making the case for deploying 10G PON now

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.

Tellabs offers FlexSym ONT248 enterprise Ethernet switch/ONT

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.
