HUBER+SUHNER’s splitter boosts GPON performance

HUBER+SUHNER says its new three-in-one splitter improves GPON distribution network performance by increasing fibre optic density, and the ultra- compact design also saves up to 30% of rack space for additional equipment and applications. Designed in cooperation with a Swiss telecommunications company the product combines a patch cable,

connectivity demands.

Designed for

fixed access network customers who

require a compact and easy-to-install solution for GPON applications, the SFO cable system connects the optical network termination

breakout cable and splice cassette in one

(OLT) port to the customer port in the optical main or secondary distribution frame. The solution offers a high

multifunctional module. HUBER+SUHNER says that by eliminating the need for separate splitter modules, customers can increase rack space and optimise their existing infrastructures and FTTH distributions. Its ability to integrate into existing and future rack space makes the SFO cable system an investment for growth,

in the central distributor (data centre), cable distributor or building distribution. Depending on the area of operation, individual designs, such as the labelling of the splitter module, connector variants or equipment with labelling clips, can be taken into consideration in advance.

32 single fibre outputs. If these modules are stacked, up to 24 traditional single splitter cassettes can be saved in the distribution rack at a depth of 300 mm. It is ideal for optimising or upgrading an existing P2P infrastructure to xPON applications. The SFO can be implemented

degree of reliability and durability, with HUBER+SUHNER drawing on its fibre optic cable manufacturing experience of more than 30 years to create it. At the core of the solution is the ultra-compact splitter module, in which one- to-two inputs are split to up to

Pan Dacom’s new pluggable 800 Gbps muxponder

The SPEED-MUX 800G is claimed to be the world’s first pluggable compact 800 Gbps multiprotocol multiplexer card with pluggable CFP2 modules and AES 256 Layer 1 encryption. The card can be equipped, depending on its configuration, with up to four QSFP28 or four QSFP- DD transceivers and a direct aggregation of 100, 200 and 400 Gigabit Ethernet is possible. Optionally, an ultra- low latency AES 256 Layer 1 encryption can be enabled

transceivers, which can transmit up to 2×400 Gbps over one DWDM wavelength each. This allows the transmission of up to 64 DWDM wavelengths, supporting 25.6 Tbps over only one optical fibre. The SPEED- MUX 800G can be deployed as dual 400G transponder card by using QSFP-DD transceivers, which offers investment protection in the context of future network expansions.
