WISI Communications, an international technology developer based in Germany, has announced the general availability of 10G SFP+ transceivers for 10G EPON and XGS-PON applications. As developed by WISI's partner Tibit Communications, the innovative OLT solution embedded in a transceiver can plug directly into a remote node or Ethernet switch with SFP+ ports, making it ideal as an overlay technology or for new network builds.

"WISI Communications is excited to partner with Tibit Communications to bring the pluggable 10G OLT / ONU MicroPlug to the European market," says Axel Sihn, managing director of WISI Gruppe. "The ability to flexibly deploy 10G PON technology, with WISI Communications' history of innovation and support, will simplify and accelerate 10G PON for FTTX deployments."

The MicroPlug OLT offers a scalable alternative to dedicated OLT equipment, the companies say. It requires less space and power than traditional OLT products, with modular and remote management capabilities that make it an ideal fit for virtualized PON (vPON) solutions and software-defined networking (SDN) implementations.

The OLT and its open-architecture management platform are uniquely designed to interoperate with a 3rd party ONUs to allow flexible pairing with a wide range of customer premise equipment. This interoperability includes pairing with Ethernet-pluggable ONU solutions for a plug-and-play PON deployment without manual provisioning and SLA configuration.

"PON should be much simpler to deploy than it is today," comments Richard Stanfield, CEO of Tibit Communications. "With WISI Communications as a strategic partner, we will simplify the deployment and operation of next generation xPON networks. As a company with a 90-year history in communications, WISI has been one of the world's pioneers in broadband technology. This makes them the ideal partner for the innovative 10G MicroPlug OLT Transceiver."

The total solution enables service providers to deploy high-bandwidth services in an agile, elastic, and dynamic way, the partners say. For more information, visit https://www.wisi.de/en/wisi-group/ and www.tibitcom.com.
