Fujitsu, Motorola Mobility demo GPON-WDM interoperability for the U.S. DoD
Fujitsu and Motorola Mobility say they have successfully tested the interoperability of their respective DWDM and GPON systems for the United States Department of Defense (DoD). The two systems under test were Fujitsu’s FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet Optical Networking Platform (Packet ONP) and Motorola’s Passive Optical LAN (POL).Both platforms are Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC)-certified. The two companies say they were able to show seamless integration, sharing data between the platforms with minimal latency or jitter effects. The companies believe they are now in position to offer the DoD and other federal agencies a new fiber-optic network approach that meets the government’s high standards of security, reliability, performance, and efficiency.“This collaboration with Motorola is the latest example of Fujitsu’s commitment to meeting the communications needs of the Federal Government,” said Jeana Cunningham, vice president of federal sales, Fujitsu Network Communications. “Over the years, we’ve worked to attain U.S. government certifications and have placed many Fujitsu technologies on the DoD’s Unified Capabilities Approved Products List. We will continue to work to meet the government’s need for ultra-reliable and secure bandwidth.”Fujitsu’s FLASHWAVE 9500 Packet ONP is a standards-based packet optical transport system that integrates multiple networking technologies, including centralized Layer 2 switching, ROADM, and transmission speeds up to 100G. By combining circuit and packet-based switching into a single platform, government organizations can transition from a legacy infrastructure to a converged core that transports TDM alongside new GPON traffic, the company asserts.Motorola’s POL portfolio is designed to simplify enterprise network deployment, operations, and management. POL is a fiber-based enterprise LAN architecture based on GPON technology, which delivers enhanced security, carrier-class reliability, and significant power savings compared to traditional enterprise LAN architectures. Motorola claims that its POL offering delivers tremendous cost savings, with up to a 55% reduction in capital and up to a 75% reduction in overall operational costs, for combined total cost of ownership (TCO) savings of up to 65% over traditional LAN architectures.
Kvant Telecom adds 100 Gbps via Ekinops optical transport systems
Russia’s Kvant Telecom has deployed 100-Gbps coherent transmission technology from Ekinops over a fiber-optic link between Moscow and Kharkov in the Ukraine. The 100-Gbps traffic is being carried as alien wavelengths over an existing DWDM network.Ekinops has delivered elements of its Ekinops 360 optical transport portfolio, which can be deployed as a 100G transponder or a 10x10G muxponder. Kvant Telecom has deployed the Ekinops systems in Moscow and Voronezh in Russia and at a collocation site in Kharkov. The 100-Gbps link then runs to Kiev and Lviv in the Ukraine, and onward to Frankfurt, Germany.“The Ekinops solution is meeting perfectly our technical expectations," said Alexander Torohov, general director of Kvant Telecom. "It allows us to address the huge demand we are seeing to connect Moscow with other European hubs. We are particularly impressed by the optical performance of the Ekinops 100G product, its small footprint, low power consumption, and cost, which will hold down our overall cost of ownership."Kvant Telecom’s fiber-optic network includes more than 1,500 km of fiber-optic lines and more than 100 nodes throughout the Voronezh, Lipetsk, Novovoroneža, Tula, and Moscow region.“The ultra-high performance and small form factor of our Ekinops 360 platform allowed Kvant Telecom to seamlessly integrate our 100G solution," said Didier Bredy, CEO of Ekinops. "This complements the Ekinops 20G services already deployed over their existing DWDM network for more than a year."
The Light Brigade updates core fiber-optic training course and manual
Fiber-optic training specialist The Light Brigade says it has significantly upgraded its core course, “Fiber Optics 1-2-3,” and the accompanying manual. The changes reflect the evolving nature of fiber-optic technology, products, and standards, the company explains.The 470-page manual is broken into 20 chapters that provide grounding in the basics of optical communications via multimode and singlemode fiber technologies. The updates include:Multimode fiber technology featuring OM3, OM4, and bend-insensitive fibers  Restricted mode and encircled flux launch conditions  Singlemode fiber technology, including G.652D, G.655, and G.657 fibers  New termination products and techniques  The latest standards and specifications   Fiber to the home, Ethernet, and the Internet Protocol (IP)  More installation and optical testing content    Updated discussions of active devices, including FTTx products   More information on passive devices such as optical switches and splitters.The Light Brigade will begin using the updated manual and curriculum this month. Former students can buy the new manual (Fiber Optics 1-2-3 Rev #W-13U) for $100.
