Lucent Technologies announced a teaming agreement with Novera Optics Ltd. to provide leading-edge dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transport platforms to service providers in <‾xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = 'urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags' />Japan.
The optical offer will leverage Novera Optics' Lambda-PON technology to deliver Fiber-To-The-x (FTTx) applications to end-users.
According to the agreement, Lucent services team in Japan will actively market, sell and provide network integration support for DWDM metro transport and PON systems based on Noveras technology.
Novera Optics platforms are designed in a modular form so they may be easily integrated into existing network architectures.
The resulting systems offers the potential for significant CAPEX and OPEX savings as carriers deliver FTTx broadband access technologies to their customers.
Novera Optics offers two series of transport platforms: SpeedlLIGHT and TurboLIGHT.
By utilizing Novera Optics Lambda-PON technology, both platforms enable a wide range of differentiated, dedicated, point-to-point connectivity services by allowing any protocol and any data rate to be carried over the same fiber infrastructure.
WDM-PON offers significantly simplified networks. It is designed to deliver a dedicate Lambda per end-user, therefore, eliminating wavelength-specific and expensive tunable laser making the deployment of the technology into metro and access area network possible today.
Alternatively, it could be used as an access network extension to support other PON or Active Ethernet solutions.
