Alcatel-Lucent was the first vendor to support fixed wavelengths in TWDM
-PON through its Universal TWDM
solution and is now supporting the standardization of XGS-PON which defines the use of a fixed 10/10 wavelength.
Alcatel-Lucent has claimed to solve this issue with 'Universal TWDM', an enhancement to its existing TWDM solution.
Universal TWDM is Alcatel-Lucent's innovative solution to this challenge.
In Universal TWDM, Alcatel-Lucent has developed an ingenious solution to help operators shrewdly manage their network investments and move directly to TWDM.
Universal TWDM enables operators to accelerate TWDM adoption by providing a lower cost solution that scales to full TWDM as demand for gigabit services grows.
Start with one non-tunable 10 Gbps wavelength using commonly available optics, significantly reducing the initial cost of TWDM.
Universal TWDM is Alcatel-Lucent s innovative solution to this challenge.
With these optics not yet available in large quantities, TWDM s current cost is higher than established technologies.
The technology enables carriers to conduct seamless upgrades to future-proof access networks through compatibility between 100Gbps PON and GbpsPON/10GbpsPON/40Gbps TWDM
PON, said the network infrastructure specialist.
The technology also establishes compatibility between 100G PON and GPON/10GPON/40G TWDM
PON, allowing carriers to execute seamless upgrades to future-proof access networks.
