CommScope has introduced two significant additions to its BrightPath fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) solution that expands its availability into global markets and makes it compatible for use in passive optical networking (PON) applications.??

CommScope’s BrightPath system is a solution for FTTx access designed to integrate seamlessly within an existing hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) network used by cable operators. The heart of the BrightPath system is the radio frequency over glass optical network unit (R-ONU).

The new BrightPath R-ONU additions are:?

  • The 1610 nanometer return path capability R-ONU, enabling customers to provide a radio frequency over glass (RFoG) solution that meets the current draft SCTE standard and is fully compatible with IEEE and International Telecommunications Union standard PON solutions. This addition enables customers to operate RFoG and PON services simultaneously on a single fiber network.
  • ?R-ONUs that support the EuroDOCSIS standard, enabling cable operators in Europe and Asia for the first time to use the BrightPath family of products to deliver services to customers.??

The BrightPath system will be featured at CommScope’s exhibit May 4-6 at the ANGA Cable Show in Cologne, Germany.
