NeoPhotonics Optimizes GPON Transceiver for 1:128 Split

NeoPhotonics introduced a multiport Mode Coupling Receiver (MCR) optical line terminal (OLT) transceiver for gigabit passive optical networks (GPON) in an SFP form factor and for use in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks.  The new devices allows FTTH operators to optimize GPON bandwidth utilization.

NeoPhotonics said its platform PIC technology enables an economical SFP form factor, which is compatible with the installed base of GPON OLT line cards.  The first version is a 4-port MCR GPON Class B+ OLT in a pluggable SFP form factor, which is designed to increase the split ratio in a standard PON from 1:32 to 1:128 while maintaining the original link budget and reach. This module features a connector with 4 fiber outputs where each individual fiber corresponds to the output of a conventional GPON OLT SFP compliant with ITU-T 984 standards.
