Austrian Utility Carrier Tests WDM-PON with ADVA

ADVA Optical Networking, Energie AG Oberösterreich Data GmbH (Data GmbH) and ELCON Systemtechnik GmbH,are conducting a WDM-PON trial in Allhaming, Austria.

The network uses dedicated wavelength connections to subscribers, achieving symmetrical access speeds exceeding current commercial offerings by more than a factor of 10. Allhaming was chosen for the trial because of its location in an underserved rural area with poor broadband access.

ADVA said the trial forms part of the collaborative EU PIANO+ projects TUCAN and IMPACT that are fostering the development of ultra-broadband WDM-PON networks.

“This trial isn't just about technology, it's about people, it's about communities, it's about the digital society,” commented Jörg-Peter Elbers, vice president, Advanced Technology, ADVA Optical Networking. “Working with the residents of Allhaming, you see firsthand how important dependable access to high-speed broadband is. People of this municipality are now able to video chat with distant relatives, participate in online learning and benefit from all the other applications that depend upon broadband access. All this is possible because of our WDM-PON technology. What's even more exciting is that this is only the first stage of the trial. In 2014, we will go even further – connecting more users and bringing additional technology developed with other collaboration partners, such as Oclaro, that provides the integrated tunable laser devices for the trial.”
