Wave7 Adds Compact Optical Line Terminal

Wave7 Optics introduced a temperature-hardened, Compact Optical Line Terminal (COLT) requiring only 2 RU (rack units) of space for deployment. The design allows network operators to deploy the COLT in inexpensive, non-climatically controlled field cabinets to serve small pockets of up to 256 subscribers, assuming typical 32-way PON splits. The COLT can be deployed up to 70 km away from either a Trident7 Universal OLT or third-party multilayer switch in a central office or head-end, and the COLT can also extend network reach and push resiliency closer to the network edge.
