NeoPhotonics Expands Portfolio of GPON Transceivers to Support Next Generation FTTP Networks

San Jose, CA | Posted on February 20th, 2008

NeoPhotonics announced today a new line of "pluggable" GPON transceivers, compliant with the ITU-T G.984.5 networking standard, to augment its portfolio of Biplexer and Triplexer modules used in "fiber to the premise" (FTTP) networks around the world. The new transceivers meet the specifications for the enhanced wavelength allocation plan specified in G.984.5 as well as for the "reach extenders" that increase the servable PON distance beyond 20 km (from the "central office" to the customer).

Furthermore, 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.

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 comprise a comprehensive line of small form factor transceivers to GPON systems manufacturers.

NeoPhotonics will showcase its new line of GPON transceiver modules alongside several other pacesetting products at the OFC/NFOEC 2008 Conference and Exhibition, in booth 2339 of the San Diego Convention Center, from February 26th through the 28th.

"These new GPON transceivers complement well our current portfolio of FTTP products and advance our strategy of becoming one of leading suppliers for optical access network systems," said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. "They comply with the latest ITU-T G.984.5 specifications to meet the performance and reliability requirements for triple-play access networks. Our GPON transceiver line builds on our experience in several segments of the optical access market, leveraging our conventional manufacturing as well as our ‘PIC,' or photonic integrated circuit, capabilities, which embodies our commitment to innovation and technology leadership in optical components."

NeoPhotonics executives also are participating in the following presentations and panel events at OFC/NFOEC 2008: Chris Pfistner, VP Product Marketing, is chairing the Service Provider Summit and Market Watch Programs, and will moderate a session on "FTTx: Deployment Models, Market Drivers & Implementation Status around the World" on Wednesday, February 27th from 11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on the exhibits floor. On Thursday, 8:00 - 10:00 a.m., several executives are giving a presentation in the "planar lightwave circuits" technology session in Room 6D.
