Teknovus Unveils 10G EPON

TOKYO -- Teknovus, the leading provider of Gigabit Ethernet Passive Optical Network (G-EPON) chips for the deployment of triple-play services in broadband access networks, is presenting “10G EPON – The Next Step in FTTx Deployments” as part of FOE’s (Fiber Optics Expo) Technical Conference on Next Generation PON. In addition, Teknovus will be demonstrating its 10G EPON solutions during the exhibition.

Teknovus Corporate VP and General Manager for Japan, Ryoji Takaichi, will be the speaker at FOE. The presentation will focus on the Teknovus TK4721, the industry’s first EPON OLT (Optical Line Terminal) System-on-Chip with support for triple-lambda WDM multiplexing of 10G, 2.5G and 1.25G EPONs, as well as multi-service traffic managing and shaping.

“Japan is the leader in fiber access with the earliest and largest number of EPON deployments, as well as the first to adopt 2.5G Turbo-EPONTM,” according to Ryoji Takaichi, Teknovus Corporate VP and General Manager for Japan. “In addition, Japanese cellular and WiMAX service providers are deploying Teknovus’ EPON chips for backhaul applications, providing substantial operating cost reductions and increased bandwidth for improved user experience. Japan is also a leader in the testing of 10G EPON, which will accelerate FTTx multi-dwelling unit deployments and converged enterprise services. We expect to see field-trials of our 10G EPON before year-end 2009.”

Teknovus’ exhibit demonstrates triple-rate EPON MACs with support for 10Gbps, 2.5Gbps and 1.25Gbps downstream data rates as well as 1.25Gbps and 10Gbps upstream data rates, enabling carriers to reduce costs by supporting coexistence of 1.25G, 2.5G and 10G ONUs on a single fiber plant. Teknovus’ customers include leading equipment vendors from Japan, Korea, China, Europe and the United States who are supporting commercial deployments by more than 35 carriers including China Telecom, China Unicom, China Mobile, KDDI, K-Opticom, Korea Telecom, LG Powercom, Chunghwa Telecom, and Telecom Malaysia.
