ADVA Optical Networking has announced its participation in a research project designed to develop future-proof, scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing Passive Optical Networking (WDM-PON) technology. Called “ADVAntage-PON”, the project will run for three years and is supported by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

After having launched a first commercial solution in 2008, ADVA Optical Networking continues to investigate and test the network and system aspects of WDM-PON technology, with the goal to deliver data rates of 1Gbps to more than 1,000 users over a distance of more than 100 kilometers. An additional outcome of the project will be that system components to be developed as part of the overall project will be used with ADVA Optical Networking’s systems to develop and implement a project demonstrator at the company’s Meiningen site.

The resulting technology from the project will be incorporated into the company’s FSP 3000 and FSP 150 products, and a final outcome will be a field trial implemented with Deutsche Telekom in Berlin. The field trial is designed to incorporate approximately 20 end-user organizations. ??In addition to cost-effective access technology development, the project will also focus on network security, energy efficiency, network monitoring and network management.
