PETALUMA, Calif. -- Teknovus, the leading provider of semiconductors for broadband optical access networks, today announced the world’s first Quad EPON OLT chipset. The TK3722 Quad OLT has been optimized to provide scalability for its customers who are looking for a “pay-as-you-grow” architecture. This allows the customers to minimize their capital expenditure on the Central Office (CO) equipment while maximizing their network footprint during the initial deployment. A single TK3722 Quad OLT solution can support one to four independent PON networks.

With annual worldwide Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) deployment rate surpassing one million subscribers, high-density as well as low-power requirements for the Optical Line Terminal (OLT) are becoming critical for service providers. In addition to power and real estate savings, the TK3722 Quad OLT allows Teknovus customers to drastically reduce the requirements for OLT uplink ports.

“With the TK3722 Quad OLT solution, we provide a scalable, robust and cost-effective solution to our customers who want to get to market quickly with minimal capital expenditure” said Dr. Rex Naden, CEO of Teknovus. “For these customers, the cost advantages are immediate as the Quad OLT solution provides a 60% reduction in components on the OLT. Further, fewer parts means increased reliability, lower total system power consumption, reduced cooling requirements, reduced board space, and lower electro-magnetic interference (EMI).”

The TK3722 EPON Quad OLT is available for customer evaluation now. To learn more about how Teknovus can meet your specific needs and to see our products in operation, please visit us at SuperComm (Booth # 86042) for a live demonstration. Technical and pricing information about the TK3722 Quad OLT can also be obtained by contacting Teknovus or its authorized sales representatives.

In a separate release:

KDDI introduced its premium-grade triple-play services to residential customers in Japan earlier this year. KDDI’s customers are able to obtain copper-grade voice, advanced TV and Internet/ data services – all via a single optical fiber to the home. Teknovus EPON chipsets play an integral role in ensuring that these deployed fiber optical networks meet carrier-grade performance, security, and manageability standards. Dr. Rex Naden, CEO of Teknovus, stated, “Leading the world in FTTH deployment and the delivery of triple-play services, we believe the SuperComm audience will be able to learn from KDDI’s experience and apply it to U.S. broadband services.”

Teknovus is the leading provider of semiconductors for broadband optical access networks. The Teknovus Ethernet PON is a family of gigabit Ethernet PON (EPON) chips enabling low cost fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) and fiber-to-the-business (FTTB) solutions. Ethernet PON provides a complete system-on-a-chip, based on the emerging 802.3ah standard, consisting of the TK3721 for EPON OLTs, TK3701 for low-cost EPON ONUs, and TK3711 for high-performance EPON ONUs. EPONs are low-cost shared fiber optic access networks that reduce the capital and operational expense of FTTH and FTTB systems by eliminating active devices in the outside plant, minimizing fiber deployment and reducing the number of optical ports at the central office.
