A provider of optical access solutions for cable operators, Aurora Networks announced its new Trident7 Optical Line Terminal (OLT) blade.
“Aurora Networks has long recognized the revenue opportunities found within the commercial services market and has developed solutions that enable cable operators to evolve their networks to capitalize on them,” said John Dahlquist, vice president of marketing at Aurora Networks. “We create solutions that enable operators to roll-out services faster and at a much lower cost.”
The solution will increase port density of the current platform, so much so that operators using Aurora Networks’ Node PON technology and the Trident7 platform will benefit from an optimized end-to-end IP networking solution.
Aurora’s end-to-end IP solution delivers substantial bidirectional bandwidth and resiliency, support for wholesale access services delivery, and open standards-based management and services provisioning.
The new Trident7 OLT blade and Node PON module are expected to help operators leverage existing network resources to deliver more optimized commercial services solutions. Trident7 OLT blade, model T7-PIM-8802, has eight EPON ports enabling support for a large number of ONTs on a single chassis.
Based on the Trident7 platform, Aurora’s unified PON architecture will help operators meet subscriber demand cost-effectively both now and into the future. The Trident7 platform supports EPON, GPON and Active Ethernet technologies, enabling operators to pick the suitable one according to their needs.
Aurora also announced the achievement of enhanced link performance, from its multi-wavelength transmitters to its smart node platform. It successfully delivered 40 wavelengths of full spectrum transmission at 40 km reach, with no amplification.
This enhanced link performance was made possible from its Full Spectrum (News - Alert) DWDM transmitter, the AT3545G-xx-1, to its smart node platform with all-QAM loading. This will help operators to significantly increase capacity-per-subscriber over greater distances.
To passively reach 40 km, this capability will also help operators improve network performance while ensuring increased scalability for future use, said officials.
