Single-Fiber 40-Channel Platform targets Metro Ethernet SPs.
September 24, 2012 -
AEPON™ (Active Ethernet Passive Optical Network) implements DWDM-PON (dense wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network) technology, based on Omnicolor™ SFP transceivers with Colorplugs™ pluggable unicolor filters. Designed for metro fiber service providers (SPs), with reach of 60 km, this platform enables wholesale of Metro Access and Metro Transport through cross-connection of Dense and Coarse WDM-PON wavelengths at Ethernet level.

AEPONyX Inc. Announces a 40-Channel Single Fiber WDM Transponder Platform Based on WDM-PON SFPs and Targeted at Metro Ethernet Service Providers
MONTREAL -- AEPONyX Inc., an equipment manufacturer set to lead the adoption of WDM-PON and enable service providers to take advantage of advances in this technology, will be unveiling the world's first single fiber 40-channel Metro Ethernet Access platform at ECOC 2012.
AEPON(TM), which stands for Active Ethernet Passive Optical Network, is AEPONyX's implementation of DWDM-PON (dense wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network) technology, based on use of long-reach AEPONyX Omnicolor(TM) small form pluggable (SFP) transceivers outfitted with AEPONyX Colorplugs(TM) pluggable unicolor filters.
Designed for metro fiber service providers, with a reach of 60 km, the AEPONyX(TM) platform enables the wholesale of Metro Access and Metro Transport through the cross-connection of Dense and Coarse WDM-PON wavelengths at the Ethernet level.
AEPONyX's flagship MxC-80(TM) product contains 80 SFP ports in a single 3U carrier class -48V DC shelf, and is designed to enable 40 wirespeed AEPON(TM) channels. Each AEPON(TM) channel contains a DWDM-side outside plant access component and a CWDM-side network-to-network interface (NNI) and enables 40 circuits to be multiplexed onto one outside plant fiber and 16 circuits to be multiplexed onto one NNI fiber.
Francois Menard, CTO Co-Founder of AEPONyX, explains, "Our customers are welcoming our solution because they can multiplex 40 circuits onto a single fiber, yet retain the robustness of a dedicated port with the full functionality of a Carrier Ethernet network-to-network interface for each circuit they wholesale." Further, they can bridge any customer premise to any datacenter across their metro markets, all from a single location, leveraging an entirely passive 60 km outside plant," he adds.
According to Philippe Babin, VP Sales and Marketing of AEPONyX, "After two years of development, our patent-protected AEPON(TM) technology, which makes WDM-PON scalable and easy to deploy, has now succeeded on all counts as part of our final customer trials, and is now generally available." "The breadth of our AEPON(TM) product portfolio is the most comprehensive WDM-PON solution and it enables our metro access customers to generate new streams of revenues from their fiber networks," he adds.
AEPONyX is innovating on multiple fronts to deliver single fiber capabilities with up to 40 circuits onto a single fiber. The AEPONyX platform is built with state-of-the-art Carrier Ethernet components and is the first to unleash the combined potential of the entire DWDM C L bands. Only two models of AEPONyX Omnicolor(TM) transceivers are required to cover all DWDM channels, the first in the L band for the MxC-80(TM) and the second in the C band for the customer premise equipment. With its ColorNID(TM), AEPONyX is first to market with a Carrier Ethernet Network Interface Device, optimized for DWDM-PON long-reach transmission.
AEPONyX will be ready to give a complete view of its AEPON(TM) product portfolio at stand 704 of the ECOC 2012 Conference on September 17-19 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
