UTEL to Launch PON System at ECOC
HADLEIGH, U.K. -- UTEL, Europe’s leading independent research and development company for telecommunications systems, has developed a new complete fibre network management system based on its world-leading Fast Light technology. The new system will be launched next month at ECOC 2013.
Fast Light, the foundation of the new Operational Support System (OSS) from UTEL, was first launched last year and is a central office OTDR fibre test system that can reliably detect ONT reflections through 128 split PONs without expensive wavelength dependent reflectors. This measurement capability is possible because of UTEL's revolutionary Advanced Reflection Detection (ARD) technology which sets a new global benchmark for OTDR performance.
The UTEL Fast Light PON management system consists of three key subsystems including a unique world class 1650nm OTDR that can see through multiple cascaded splitters, an ultra low cost Robotic Optical Test Access Switch that can be flexibly expanded as the network grows and an optional OSS or Application Programming Interface.
