Nortel and LG-Nortel Introduce WDM-PON Ethernet Access

Nortel and LG-Nortel (the joint venture of LG Electronics and Nortel) introduced an Ethernet Access solution that uses a WDM-PON architecture.


Nortel said the advantage of this approach is the assurance of dedicated bandwidth and more security over connections which are always available, and never stalled or slowed down by other traffic on the network. The solution starts with speeds of 100 Mbps and easily scalable to add more bandwidth.


Products in the Nortel Ethernet Access Portfolio include:

  • Ethernet Access Business Unit (Indoor) 1111 -- the Ethernet Access Business Unit (EABU) 1111 is a colorless termination unit that resides at the business location and can accommodate various types of services through the Ethernet (100Base-TX) port.


  • Ethernet Access Business Unit (Indoor) 1112 -- the Ethernet Access Business Unit (EABU) 1112 is a colorless termination unit that resides at the business location and can accommodate various types of services through the Ethernet (100Base-TX) port.


  • Ethernet Access Residential Unit (Indoor) 1112-- the Ethernet Access Residential Unit (EARU) 1112 is a colorless indoor termination unit that resides at the subscriber location and can accommodate various types of services through the Ethernet (100Base-TX) port.


  • Ethernet Access Service Terminal 1100-- the Ethernet Access Service Terminal 1100 offers simple, scalable and secure point-to-point or point to multi-point Ethernet access to end-users. It surpasses traditional FTTx /ETTx solutions by offering Ethernet point-to-point and Ethernet over Wavelength Division Multiplexing-Passive Optical Networks (WDM PON) technology for both business and residential solutions.


  • Wavelength Passive Unit 1132 -- the Wavelength Passive Filter (WPF) is an Arrayed Waveguide Grated (AWG) filter that takes in colored light from the Ethernet Access Service Terminal 1100 and splits the wavelengths out towards the Ethernet Access Business and Residential Units.
