BroadLight Award Patent for Native Service Transport Over PON

BroadLight has been awarded a patent for natively transporting voice and data over Passive Optical Networks (PONs). This patent, which was filed in 2002 with a Foreign Application Priority Data in 2001, defined the infrastructure for a PON frame length of 125usec which led to an overall decrease in deployment costs, increase in bandwidth and improvement in quality of service for the triple play. BroadLight said its patent describes a method of how to natively transport services such as voice and data over PON. This method eliminates the need to convert services into a single protocol at the transmitting end and then having to convert them back to their original service type at the receiving end. http://www.broadlight.com
