Ericsson Pushes 40 Gbps WDM-PON

With an eye towards mobile backhaul and other demanding applications,Ericsson is scaling PON-based fiber access networks to 40 Gbps using Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Network (WDM-PON) technology. The capability is being added to the EA 1100 platform, which is a result of a joint venture with LG-Ericsson.



Ericsson also announced several GPON enhancements, including a new 16-port GPON OLT board now enables broadband services to more than 14,000 FTTH GPON subscribers in a single EDA 1500 chassis.



Ericsson is also introducing an Integrated TDM Gateway (ITG) board to the EDA 1500, enabling a converged platform for packet and TDM services across fixed enterprise and mobile applications. The ITG terminates and aggregates E1 services across multiple GPON ports at the OLT for STM-1 connectivity to existing TDM networks. This simplifies the network and substantially improves an operator's total cost of ownership.



Last, Ericsson is further expanding its EDA portfolio with the T780G Optical Network Unit (ONU). This GPON-fed modular ONU provides flexibility for operators delivering ADSL2+, VDSL2, POTS, E1 and Ethernet services to both business and residential users. The T780G enables operators to support dense areas with different service requirements without rewiring buildings. The ONU is part of Ericsson's T-series of optical terminals which provides maximum flexibility to deploy deep fiber access networks.http://www.ericsson.com
