The evolution of fiber to the home (FTTH) technology is a key issue for the telecom industry. Operators need to consider today which optical access platform will allow them to adapt most cost-effectively and intelligently as future bandwidth demand and applications evolve. And, as the massive deployment of FTTH networks continues worldwide, operators expect more from FTTH-based technologies. They expect next-generation technologies to enhance bandwidth and service support capabilities while supporting coexistence with their existing equipment and outside plant.
LIGHTRON’s first decade of history was filled with the design-wins of global PON technology proliferations ; Japan to US, BPON to GE-PON/GPON to 10G-EPON/XGS-PON and finally to NGPON2. LIGHTRON introduces the DML-based NGPON2 ONU and dispersion penalty at C-band has been successfully overcome in the product design to be fully compliant with ITU-T G.989.2 standard requirements. DML-based ONU is more competitive at cost against EML or other available laser-employed technologies.
Moreover, LIGHTRON offers an extensive line-up of NGPON2 product family with the addition of MAC-capable SFP+ ONU (so called PON Stick) and class N2 OLT in XFP form-factor.
