Industry first symmetrical 10G Optical LAN live demo proves IT network investment protection

Today we distributed a news release in support of our live demonstration of Tellabs’ symmetrical 10 gigabit XGS-PON at our BICSI Winter Conference booth (#1201) in Orlando, Florida on Monday February 5th through Wednesday February 7th that proves no equipment, cabling, wavelength nor power conflicts (Watch CI&M live Video of 10G XGS-PON demo).


The significance of this showcase is that it features a Tellabs™ Optical LAN system operating both 2.5G ITU G.984 PON simultaneous over a common optical distribution network supporting bi-directional 10G upstream, and 10G downstream, ITU G.989 PON. This groundbreaking display proves that customers deploying today’s PON technology can support future 10 gigabit bi-directional connectivity speeds over the same IT infrastructure without the disruptive rip-and-replace that happens with traditional copper-based IT networks.


This side-by-side support of 2.5G G-PON and 10G XGS-PON is of critical importance to enterprise networks because it allows IT pros to be selective, and strategic, in marrying what end-points truly need 1G, 2.5G, 5G and 10G speeds across the same network.


The next-generation OLAN demonstration will also highlight:

  • Tellabs 1134 Optical Line Terminal (OLT), connected to a variety of enterprise centric Optical Network Terminals (ONT), will demonstrate that 2.5G ITU G.984 PON simultaneous over a common Optical distribution network supporting 10G ITU G.989 PON can be delivered via the same system, and better yet, from the same PON service module – another industry first.
  • Alpha Technologies’ eLimiter+ Class 2 Remote Power Distribution Unit showcases the ability to remotely power 10G ONTs alongside of today’s 2.5G ONTs.
  • EXFO’s new PON Power Meter – PPM-350D will demonstrate accurate and simultaneous power level measurement of downstream and upstream signals supporting wavelengths for both next-generation PON and legacy G-PON.
