10G EPON optical transceivers drive FTTP applications


GPON and 10G EPON optical transceivers for fiber to the premise (FTTP) or FTTH Fiber to the home applications to its Passport line of universal transceivers.

For GPON, SFP transceivers for both OLT (optical line terminal) and ONT/ONU (optical network terminal/Optical Network Unit) interfaces. there are also 10G EPON via both SFP+ and XFP transceivers; the SFP+ handles both OLT and optical network unit (ONU) needs, while the XFP will meet OLT requirements only. The MSA-compliant transceivers are offered direct replacements for hot pluggable OEM transceivers and carry a 5-year warranty.

“With the advent of streaming video and other high-speed services, the need for higher bandwidth continues to fuel growth in demand for FTTP applications. Companies like Verizon, Google, Comcast and AT&T are investing heavily in this fast-growing market,” notes John Jutila, Champion ONE’s CEO. “Now with our new portfolio of GPON and EPON products, well positioned to help meet the needs of these service providers and others that require demanding OLT and ONU transceiver deployment support and value.”

The IEEE 1904 Access Networks Working Group (ANWG) uses an open and accredited process to develop standards for access networks. The Working Group technical expertise covers various optical access architectures based on Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON), such as fiber-to-the-home, fiber-to-the-business, and cellular backhaul.

The ANWG embraces the system-level view of a network and focuses on functions and protocols required for operating and managing the emerging multi-service and high-capacity access networks.
