NeoPhotonics Samples Extended Reach OLT Transceivers

NeoPhotonics has begun sampling its first extended reach "XG PON1" transceiver module for 10G PON applications in an XFP form factor. The new pluggable transceiver increases the link budget from 29 dB (ITU-T G987.2 Class N1) to 31 dB (ITU-T G987.2 Class N2), and is designed to support network overlay of 10G XG-PON1 over existing Class B+ GPON networks (28dB link budget).

The company also today announced that it has tripled capacity for its current OLT transceivers over the last year to help satisfy FTTH deployments in Asia and North America.
