DENVER -- Aurora Networks, Inc., the only optical transport solution provider focused on delivering a cost-effective, optimized platform for next-generation cable services, today introduced GEPON CPE and RFPON CPE (customer premises equipment) devices for the cable market, solutions that will help cable operators evolve their networks for an all-fiber future.

The CPEs are debuting at SCTE Cable-Tec Expo 2009, taking place Oct. 28-30 in Denver. The devices are part of Aurora Networks’ slate of award-winning RFPON solutions, recognized throughout the industry for enabling cable operators to take advantage of fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) architectures. The solutions also allow operators to future-proof their systems by providing a seamless migration path for the inclusion of PON services.

The RFPON CPE (CP8016U-55-42) and GEPON CPE (CP8000N-66-45) are designed for outdoor and indoor mounting, a unique feature given that most similar devices can only support indoor applications. The devices can be utilized in both residential and commercial settings and the CPEs are IEEE 802.3ah (EPON) compatible.

The RFPON CPE provides all of the functionality of Aurora Networks’ traditional RFoG CPE, but with 1610 nm upstream wavelength for PON compatibility. The GEPON CPE, with 1310 nm upstream wavelength, is the first such device in Aurora Networks’ CP8000N family and is designed to co-exist with the company’s new RFPON CPE. With the company’s Node PON™ OLT module, operators can now benefit from a one-stop shop as they roll out GEPON services.

The RFPON and GEPON CPEs provide additional support for Aurora Networks’ RFPON solution, which took honors as the top video/data/voice last mile transmission technology in Cable and Satellite International magazine’s annual awards held on Sept. 11, 2009, in Amsterdam. Dr. Roger Blakeway, president of SCTE Europe and a member of the CSI Awards judging panel, said he was impressed with the RFPON platform’s ability to allow cable operators to cost-effectively upgrade to a more energy-efficient next generation network. “The product provides a simple and compact solution to providing all-fiber architectures, and the associated ‘green’ credentials made it an obvious winner,” Blakeway said.
