NORCROSS, Ga. and MUNICH and MARTINSRIED, Germany -- ADVA Optical Networking today announced the introduction of its Flexible Remote Node (FRN), an extension of the ADVA FSP 3000 that enables network operators to cost-effectively introduce WDM-PON (Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Networks) into their network. The FRN is a key element of future-proof FTTx (Fiber-to-the-x) concepts, allowing carriers to deliver larger amounts of bandwidth at a significantly lower cost.

In today’s times of fierce price competition, higher upstream demands and regulatory pressure for local loop unbundling, carriers are challenged to consolidate their metro networks and rethink their access strategies. To ensure long-term profitable service delivery, communications providers must drive toward a strategy of converged access and backhaul for residential and business services, fewer active components in the access network, the elimination of local exchanges, reduced power consumption and space utilization.

“There is true benefit to having WDM in both the access and backhaul segments of the network,” stated Christoph Glingener, chief technology officer of ADVA Optical Networking. “There have been several false starts in the industry regarding FTTx (Fiber-to-the-x) deployments; many solutions have shown limited scalability, introduced network complexity and increased operational costs. Our new unified approach, employing a WDM-PON solution, will enable service providers of all kinds to extend the benefits of WDM into the access network, thereby eliminating active sites and reducing overall network costs.”
