Wave7 Introduces "Universal PON" System

Wave7 Optics introduced its Trident7 Optical Access Platform -- an advanced "universal PON" system supporting its own Ethernet-based Last Mile Link (LML) system, IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) and ITU-T G.984 Gigabit-capable PON (G-PON). Each of these technologies is supported on a "blade by blade" basis. The system is available as a modular OLT (optical line terminal) chassis that can installed at the central office or in the field. It features a 180 Gbps backplane and accommodates up to eighteen line cards.

The Trident7 also incorporates Wave7 Optics' multi-layer QoS, integrated RF return for interactive video, 128-bit encryption and Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) immunity for the highest quality video.

Wave7 noted that it now has more than 100 FTTP deployments on six continents.
