PMC-Sierra has announced the availability of systems for symmetric 10 Gbps IEEE 802.3av EPON, including optical line terminals (OLTs) and optical network units (ONUs). The company will demonstrate the second-generation 10G EPON platforms in conjunction with the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC), March 23-26, at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel in San Diego. The upcoming demonstration will feature PMC-Sierra’s symmetric 10G EPON systems, delivering 10 Gbps downstream and upstream performance.
The PAS8011 system for 10G OLTs and the PAS9011 system for 10G ONUs are designed to integrate all the functionality required from an OLT and ONU running at 10G rates, including transceivers. The solutions are designed to be interoperable with more than 7 million EPON ONUs deployed worldwide that are based on PMC-Sierra’s devices.
