Corecess Intros DWDM-PON
SEOUL -- Corecess Inc., a pioneer and major provider of IP broadband access solutions for the advanced service market, today announced next generation Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Passive Optical Network (PON) platform that delivers up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet and/or Gigabit Ethernet PON (GEPON) over a pair of feeder fibers.
Built on company’s market proven “S5” optical access platform, where included are advanced optical component and transmission technologies from Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI), this gigabit DWDM-PON improves service provider’s bandwidth offering in a scalable and cost effective way.
This new platform provides colorless operation by employing Reflective Semiconductor Optical Amplifier (RSOA) technology from ETRI, which is implemented in SFP and GBIC form factors. These plug-n-play optical transceivers provide smooth migration from legacy optical access platform, and carry 1.25Gbps data streams, which are muxed in the off-the-shelf unit. In addition, highly modular architecture and protocol transparency of WDM favors the new platform as a gradual approach for service provider to prepare future service demands for bandwidth and service.
“This launch is Corecess’ vision for next generation optical access platform. It combines packet’s economics and DWDM’s bandwidth capability and scalability, while eliminates installation and maintenance woes by utilizing modular platform, PON architecture and colorless optical transceivers to improve service provider’s capability of bandwidth provisioning economically. Colorless operation is required to make DWDM work for access. ETRI’s knowledge and technology of advanced optics inspires Corecess to implement new type of gigabit DWDM-PON.” said Yeong-bong Son, Executive VP of sales & marketing, Corecess. He also noted that scalability and versatility in gigabit provisioning makes this platform fit for not only optical access node but back-haul aggregation node for broadband.
