Source Photonics, Inc. Key Developments

Source Photonics Announces the Availability of the Pluggable GPON SFP ONU with Network Clock Synchronization Capability

Source Photonics announced the integrated, pluggable GPON SFP ONU with 1 Pulse-Per-Second (1PPS) and Time-of-Day (ToD) support for network clock synchronization. The family of GPON ONU SFP transceiver products is based on the ITU-G.984.2, G.988, and the Broadband Forum TR-156 standards, and offers full GPON OMCI stack, an SGMII interface operating at 1Gbit/s or 2.5Gbit/s, and full digital diagnostics monitoring capability. Available in industrial-temperature grade, and with low typical power dissipation of 1.5W, the integrated GPON SFP ONU is well-suited for mobile small-cell backhaul applications. In the same product family of integrated pluggable GPON ONUs, Source Photonics offers a version with fully implemented IEEE 1588v2 capability for network clock synchronization, in an SFP package with standard pin-out. Both versions with network clock features are available in standard GPON wavelength configuration, as well as option for CWDM multi-wavelength versions to support wavelength overlay on existing installations to maximize the fiber utilization of the PON ODN plant. The product family of pluggable GPON ONUs complements Source Photonics' broad product offering of optical interfaces for mobile infrastructure applications. With a comprehensive range of CPRI and OBSAI based optical transceivers from 1Gb/s to 10Gb/s data rate shipping in volume to major infrastructure equipment manufacturers for major deployments globally, Source Photonics is an established market leader for optical components for C-RAN, antenna front-haul, and small-cell back-haul.

Most recently, he led the Automation and Controls Solutions group, a $2.5 billion unit. Prior to United Technologies, Wright spent 15 years at Ingersoll Rand where he served in a variety of leadership roles, including president of Asia for the Security Technologies group. Dr. Near Margalit will become Chief Product Officer and will oversee all aspects of technology and product development.

Source Photonics, Inc. Announces Low Power Consumption GPON SFP ONU and EPON SFP ONU with DPoE OAM

Source Photonics, Inc. announced two new SFP ONUs with embedded MAC for applications in GPON OAM and DOCSIS provisioning of EPON (DPoE). The 1.25Gbps bi-directional EPON ONU with MAC is part of the DPoE architecture developed for upgrading a CATV point-to-point system to EPON using existing DOCSIS-based back office systems and processes. The ONU is in MSA compliant SFP form-factor and is designed to simply plug into a standard SFP port in the customer premises equipment (CPE). The product offers "plug-and-play" capability via the auto discovery and configuration feature for ease of use. The ONU also features multiple functions including VLAN support, ONU Certification, IGMP Snooping, Traffic Management, Clock Synchronization, Rogue ONU detection and Dying Gasp indication. The transceiver is fully compliant with IEEE 802.3ah standards and supports DPoE v1.0 OAM for CMTS platform applications, as well as optional GE/FE SerDes UNI and SGMII UNI. The GPON ONU with MAC integrates GPON OMCI Stack and is fully compliant with ITU-T G.984 standards. The GPON SFP-ONU product offers the same expanded feature set as the EPON product, and allows interconnection of a standard Ethernet SFP port to a PON network, in a broad range of network applications including wireless backhaul and FTTx.
