Fujitsu, Moto Get Together on GPON
RICHARDSON, Texas and HORSHAM, Pa. -- Fujitsu and Motorola Mobility today announced the successful testing of an interoperable GPON-WDM (Gigabit Passive Optical Networking – Wavelength Division Multiplexing) solution for the United States Department of Defense (DoD). The solution features Fujitsu’s FLASHWAVE® 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (P-ONP) and Motorola’s Passive Optical LAN (POL) solution. The two Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC)-certified platforms demonstrated seamless integration, providing the Department of Defense (DoD) and other federal agencies with a new optical network solution that meets the government’s high standards of security, reliability, performance and efficiency. Fujitsu’s FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP is a standards-based solution that integrates key advanced networking technologies including, centralized L2 switching, ROADM, and transmission up to 100G. The Fujitsu and Motorola platforms demonstrate data sharing with minimal latency or jitter effects. Motorola’s Passive Optical LAN (POL) greatly simplifies enterprise network deployment, operation and management. POL is based on proven GPON technology that delivers enhanced security, carrier-class reliability and significant power savings. Motorola’s POL solution also delivers tremendous cost savings, with up to a 55 percent reduction in capital and up to a 75 percent reduction in overall operational costs, for combined Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings of up to 65 percent over traditional LAN architectures.
