Visitors to the recent FTTH Council Europe 2010 conference in Lisbon, Portugal saw an integrated fiber-to-the-business/home/basestation (FTTx) offering from WDM-PON Ecosystem members: LG-Nortel, Teldat, Genexis, Comtrend and Visipia.
The WDM-PON Ecosystem initiative, started in August 2009 by LG-Nortel, has recently expanded its customer premises equipment (CPE) suppliers, bringing the roster to five active members.
At the show, LG-Nortel demonstrated multi-vendor Ecosystem interoperability of 100 Megabit and Gigabit Ethernet services, on-line gaming, triple-play services, home PC on-line data backup, high-definition video surveillance, mobile backhaul, and business and residential applications.
WDM-PON (Wavelength Division Multiplexing-Passive Optical Network) allows service providers to deliver high-speed Gigabit Ethernet services by servicing a large number of customers over a single fiber-optic connection.
