LG-Nortel Ecosystem Aims To Standardize WDM-PON

SEOUL – While WDM-PON -- fiber to the premises based on wavelength division multiplexing -- is often called the "end game" for broadband, one obstacle to its adoption is the lack of interoperable equipment. The WDM-PON Ecosystem initiative from LG-Nortel, a joint venture of LG Electronics and Nortel, aims to make interoperability easier by providing a cost-effective, resilient service layer. The goal of the WDM-PON Ecosystem is to bring together industry hardware and software vendors, as well as component and tool suppliers, to participate in creating interoperable WDM-PON solutions. Now Teldat, Genexis and Comtrend have pledged interoperability of their CPE solutions by joining the initiative.

In 2008, LG-Nortel acquired Novera Optics, a leading provider of WDM-PON solutions. The WDM-PON Ecosystem initiative builds on this expertise to provide a framework for deployment of next-generation fiber-based access networks, including core network solutions and customer premises equipment (CPE) solutions.

In May 2009, LG-Nortel and ETRI, Korea's leading IT research and development institute, announced they had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote global standardization of WDM-PON technology. The agreement focuses on the development of green broadcasting & communications technology, including shared research and development and joint actions for global marketing.
