ADVA Optical Demos WDM-PON

  • FTTB
Norcross, GA, and Martinsried/Munich, Germany - ADVA Optical Networking opened a customer solution center in Meiningen, Germany, to demonstrate its WDM-PON (Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Networks) technology. Service providers can see how business, residential and wholesale access and backhaul requirements can be served over a unified infrastructure with little to no active equipment between the central office and customer premises.

ADVA developed the WDM-PON solution as an extension to its FSP-3000 platform in order to help service providers bring fiber closer to the end user and simplify their networks. The Flexible Remote Node (FRN) employs temperature-hardened WDM filters that create a point-to-multi-point solution with a single feeder fiber between the central office and the service edge. Low-insertion loss allows network operators to deliver more bandwidth to more endpoints from fewer sites that sit farther back in the network. Access links are fully visible and can be provisioned remotely. Optical links to third-party devices can be monitored through ADVA Optical Networking’s Optojack service demarcation technology.

“Deploying WDM in the access network creates a flat architecture that is more efficient because it eliminates multiple layers of costly aggregation equipment and protocol conversions,” says Andrew Schmitt, directing analyst for optical at Infonetics Research. “Several carriers have embraced this approach because it supports their long-term strategy to eliminate active sites and consolidate COs.”

In a related announcement, ADVA Optical Networking announced that it had successfully completed Optojack interoperability tests with multiple Ethernet switch and DSLAM (Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer) vendors.
