Alloptic Developing 10G EPON OLT

Alloptic disclosed details of its forthcoming 10 Gigabit capable Ethernet-based Passive Optical Network (10G EPON) system. Supporting both 10G EPON and IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet in the First Mile, the Edge 10 provides industry leading bandwidth with per-flow based Quality of Service (QoS).

Alloptic said its "Edge 10" will be a modular, redundant OLT chassis featuring an 800 Gbps backplane, advanced packet processing and per flow QoS, 8 port GE-PON and 2 port 10G EPON line cards and multiport 10 GE uplink cards.

Alloptic plans to begin shipping the Edge 10 to customers mid 2007.

"By supporting both GE-PON and 10G EPON on a 'blade by blade' basis, the Edge 10 extends our market leadership position by ensuring our customers can cost effectively deliver both high densities of Fast Ethernet and fractional Gigabit Ethernet services for business applications, while supporting the multiple simultaneous streams of High Definition time-shifted IPTV - crucial for future residential deployments," said Shane Eleniak, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for Alloptic.
