EMBARQ Logistics Signs Wave7 Optics for FTTP

EMBARQ Logistics, the deployment, distribution and logistics division of Embarq (Sprint's former local telephone division), will now include Wave7 Optic's new "universal PON" Trident7 Optical Access platform and Wave7's existing Last Mile Link (LML) Ethernet-based FTTP system as part of its product portfolio.


  • In September 2005, 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.
