BEIJING -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today launched the industry’s first 40G PON (Passive Optical Network) prototype. The 40G PON system was jointly tested and certified by Huawei and the China Telecom Beijing Research Institute earlier this month.

The system uses wavelength division multiplexing technology that allows a 40 Gb/s downstream transmission rate and a 10 Gb/s upstream rate, with no change to legacy GPON/XGPON optical distribution networks (ODN). The system also supports a 1:512 optical splitting ratio and a transmission reach of 20 kilometers. Huawei’s 40G PON system will enable telecom operators to integrate future upgrade and evolution initiatives with existing GPON deployment plans, offering them more control over the total cost of operation throughout the entire lifecycle of an optical access network.
