Pro Optix offer complete solutions for optical networks on the EPON, 10G-EPON, GPON, XG-PON, XGS-PON and NG-PON2 standards. Our high-quality optical transceivers, PLC splitters and fiber patch cables enable high-performance PON fiber networks for broadband applications. With speeds from 1.2Gbps to 40Gbps we have the solution to fit different scenarios and the background knowledge around this technology.
Passive Optical Networks make use of Time Division Multiplexing (TDM) and WDM Technology (Wavelength Division Multiplexing) to designate bandwidths to each of the client connections from the providers connection.
The splitters (and multiplexers) allows for a greater density of end clients by letting them share the same physical medium – the optical fiber, without enabling inter client communications. There are many competing technologies on the market ranging from traditional standards such as GPON or EPON to the newest like XGS-PON or NG-PON2 that are pushing PON to the next level.
Traditionally PON has been asymmetrical, using a greater downstream bandwidth with a constant power signal from the central node (called the OLT), which then can be split for up to 128 end clients. The end client equipment (usually referred to an an ONU) then filters out only the frames relevant to each client and discards other frames. Upstream communications are emitted in bursts using Time Division Multiplexing to consolidate communications back into the OLT at the providers office.
Gigabit Passive Optical Networks provides up to a 20km reach at speeds of up to 2.5Gbps downstream and 1.25Gbps upstream. QoS handles voice, video and data.
Compatible with GPON, XG-PON delivers 10Gbgs on the downstream speed and 2.5Gbps on upstream. A range of 20kms is again achievable, as is QoS.
XG Symmetric PON offers the same downstream speed as XG with 10Gbps but can match that on the upstream. Again it offers compatibility with GPON, a 20km range and QoS.
Also known as TWDM-PON, this recent addition uses 4 wavelengths broadcasting simultaneously to achieve 40Gbps on both the upstream and the downstream. It also supports 20kms of range, QoS and compatibility with GPON, XG-PON and XGS-PON.
Each Transmission Standard uses its own wavelength range which is what allows for compatibility. The below table graphic shows these and the potential for upload/download performance.
The above enables all the benefits of fiber networks and up to a 20km reach to broadband customers and provide the higher service standards associated.
