|ADTRAN Optics Reset the Economics of FTTH Service Delivery|
Nx10G tunable optics network can save providers up to 80 percent of the capital and operational costs as they look to scale NG-PON2 deployments
SET optics provide an essential building block for the wavelength agile access network of the future, providing the dynamic network capabilities needed to underpin the provider’s creation and deployment of user-driven service delivery models. By providing fast wavelength switching times and access-friendly cost points, SET optics will remove the operational and economic sensitivities that have previously limited tunable optics to transport applications. When paired with software-defined access to allow dynamic control, SET optics and NG-PON2 provide a highly dynamic physical layer to extend the programmable network to optical levels.
“With our new SET optical transceivers,
As Internet traffic levels rise and service providers look to support business and enterprise services over a unified access network, the ability to add capacity on the fly has become a network imperative. The multi-wavelength capability of NG-PON2, enabled by SET optics, helps access network operators pull more capacity out of their existing fiber access plants, providing a dispatch-free upgrade path when the existing PON capacity has become exhausted. Additionally, combining SDN-enabled capacity management with ADTRAN’s SET optics’ sub-50ms wavelength switchover times enables NG-PON2 networks to ensure the highest level of application quality of experience in a user-defined service structure and deliver resilient, SLA-based services. These benefits are realized by allowing the automatic offload of traffic from congested or out of service wavelengths and OLT ports to alternative wavelengths on less utilized network assets.
“Today, service providers are looking for highly scalable, programmable
service delivery models. It is imperative that their current fiber
network investment cost-effectively supports the next wave of
multi-gigabit growth spurred by emerging user-driven services and
SET optics is one of several optical technology choices in ADTRAN’s unique access portfolio, providing flexible optics possibilities, including both fixed-wavelength and SET options for 10G ONUs to meet the needs of all access network operators.
