Alphion Unveils FTTx Amplifiers
The QLight(TM) 1310nm amplifier is designed to amplify the upstream traffic while the QLight(TM) 1490nm amplifier is designed to amplify the downstream traffic. These amplifiers are both protocol and data-rate independent and can be used as a transmitter power-amp, a receiver pre-amp or as an in-line amplifier.
Chris Peterson, Alphion Vice President of Marketing, is confident about the market potential for these new devices. "These two new QLight(TM) amplifiers address the needs of the next generation of networks by expanding the limits of current GPON, EPON and BPON architectures. Not only do these amplifiers extend the reach of current technology, they allow PON systems to support increased numbers of users per node and faster data-rates. Amplification also allows customers to consider new PON architectures that further extend the capabilities of FTTx networks."
