Tellabs, EXFO demo XGS-PON, GPON over same fiber infrastructure

Feb. 10, 2020
10G PON demo by Tellabs and EXFO at the 2020 BICSI Winter show (Feb. 9-13) stresses network investment protection.

Tellabs, a specialist in Passive Optical Network (PON) systems, and EXFO, a long-time expert in communications industry test, monitoring and analytics platforms, are this week mounting a live demonstration of "the ever-increasing bandwidths possible over PON while preserving investments in existing fiber cabling, splitters, and equipment," as stated by the companies. The joint technology showcase is available for viewing at the BICSI Winter Conference 2020 exhibition, in Tampa, FL from February 10-12, by visiting EXFO's exhibitor booth #1031.

In the live demo, Tellabs and EXFO aim to validate to BICSI attendees that a fiber-based enterprise LAN, designed using PON technology, can cost-effectively support one gigabit to ten gigabit connectivity speeds simultaneously over existing infrastructure, to satisfy the constantly increasing network capacities demanded of today’s modern smart buildings.
