ADC Does WDM-PON

MINNEAPOLIS -- ADC (NASDAQ:ADCT) (www.adc.com) today announced that it has expanded its industry-leading PONy Express(TM) access transport platform with a new WDM-PON application that enables service providers to meet the demands for increasing bandwidth by maximizing their fiber capacity. This solution will be featured at NXTcomm, June 16-19, Las Vegas, in ADC's booth #3916.

In this application, the PONy (Passive Optical Network over wavelengths) Express, the first transport platform to address the bottleneck that occurs in traditional optical access networks, is combined with a Wavelength-Division-Multiplexed Passive Optical Network (WDM-PON) Plug-and-Play Splitter in a fiber distribution cabinet to provide an easy upgrade from Gigabit PON (GPON) to WDM-PON with minimal service impact.

"Service providers worldwide are deploying PON, including GPON, to provide the bandwidth that consumers and enterprises demand," said Jon Norton, vice president of Network Solutions for ADC. "However, GPON can't meet long-term bandwidth requirements and WDM-PON provides a future-proof solution because its initial per-subscriber capacity of 100 Mbps is more than enough to support the most bandwidth-intensive applications and services."
