OptiX2 Launches maXimux, a Next-Gen PON Platform

  • OptiX2
DURHAM, NC – OptiX2 announced the general availability of maXimux, a next-generation (NG) passive optical networking (PON) platform. MaXimux is a 12-slot, single rack unit (RU) chassis that supports virtually any passive optical device including CWDM (coarse wave division multiplexing) and DWDM (dense wave division multiplexing) as well as optical couplers/taps and newer, specialty multiplexers such as NG-PON2 and EPON+RFoG. With its multitude of slots and high-density modules, maXimux provides service providers and data centers with the highest density and most service flexibility available in a 1RU chassis.

In the past, most passive optical devices were housed in cassettes or modules as part of an LGX solution, which has been around and relatively unchanged for decades. These LGX modules protect passive optical devices from the environment, while providing a simple, modular, plug-n-play solution when used with an LGX chassis. “MaXimux embraces the best aspects of LGX, such as modularity, flexibility, and plug-n-play simplicity, while reducing the footprint by 75 percent and providing 4 x the density,” said Johnston. Additionally, maXimux addresses some of the shortcomings associated with LGX modules, such as the elimination of pushpins for securing modules in a chassis. “With maXimux’s SecureFITS (Fastens Inside The System) mechanism that secures the module within the chassis, customers no longer have to worry about pushpins breaking or not aligning correctly with the chassis,” Johnston concluded.
