AEPONYX Showcases First Standards-based 10 Gbps WDM-PON Solution with 40 Channels on a Single Fiber at OFC 2015

MONTREAL - AEPONYX inc. will be showcasing the industry's first standards-based 10 Gbps single fiber 40 channels WDM-PON solution designed to operate on the C-band 50 GHz ITU Grid at the OFC 2015 Exposition (Booth #1462).

This WDM-PON solution, consisting of the AEPONYX Colormux C/2 and Colornode C/2 WDM-PON passives, leverages tunable small-form pluggable transceivers (SFPs) operating at 10 Gbps (T-SFP+) as well as 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps fixed transceivers.

Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network (WDM-PON) is the only technology that enables the delivery of several secure dedicated capacity circuits to multiple customer premises over different wavelengths, for up to 40 km, on a single fiber optic line - and all this without the need for any powered equipment between the service provider installations and the customer premises.

An Industry-leading Advance in WDM-PON Made by AEPONYX

"The recent commercial availability and competitive supply of tunable SFP+ able to tune on a 50 GHz grid has justified the development of the first standards-based fully interoperable single-fiber WDM-PON solution based on the use of half the C-Band in each direction," explained AEPONYX CTO Co-Founder Francois Menard.

The central office multiplexer and the remote node were designed around a 50 GHz C-band AAWG and integrate the necessary WDM filters to enable single fiber operation. Operators can also overlay WDM-PON on all existing GPON single fiber outside plants, providing up to 160 times more capacity that can be assigned to business connectivity or mobile backhaul/fronthaul circuits.

"Our customers can now confidently deploy our Colormux C/2 and Colornode C/2 WDM-PON passives knowing they will enable an upgrade to 100 Gbps per channel with CFP-2 ACO's, without requiring any change to the outside plant or disrupting any existing service," concluded AEPONYX CTO & Co-Founder.


"We have created the first single fiber WDM-PON solution to strictly conform to the ITU 50 GHz G.694.1 standard, allowing WDM-PON to be confidently deployed by carriers, without waiting for further standards development," stated AEPONYX VP Sales & Marketing Philippe Babin.

"Our C/2 WDM-PON Solution is non-proprietary and guarantees a dual-sourcing policy for all of its components with no vendor lock-in," emphasized AEPONYX's VP Sales & Marketing.

AEPONYX customers can leverage the competitive supply of 10 Gbps Carrier Ethernet switches and NIDs to offer dedicated high capacity services.

The C/2 WDM-PON solution from AEPONYX allows for 40 channels of single fiber operation and is ready for the imminent availability of 100/200 Gbps pluggable coherent optics (CFP-2 ACO), paving the way for 8 terabits per second of capacity per fiber.
