Huawei Shows 40G PON Prototype with 1:512 Split Ratio

Huawei announced a prototype PON platform that delivers 40 Gbps downstream and 10 Gbps upstream. The system, which has been tested and certified by the China Telecom Beijing Research Institute, supports a 1:512 optical splitting ratio and a transmission reach of 20 kilometers.

“Huawei's 40G PON system is highly compatible with existing GPON and XGPON systems and its transmission convergence layer maximally leverages existing GPON and XGPON structures,�? said Dr. Frank J. Effenberger, Huawei's chief optical access technology expert. “We are pleased to note that Huawei's solution has gained wide-ranging support from international standardization organizations like FSAN and ITU-T.�?
