Alloptic’s new Edge 10 platform 10Gigabit-capable Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) system supports both 10G EPON and IEEE 802.3ah Ethernet in the first mile and is intended to provide high bandwidth with per-flow-based quality of service (QoS). Alloptic plans to begin shipping the Edge 10 to customers mid 2007.
“By supporting both GE-PON and 10G EPON on a ‘blade-by-blade’ basis, the Edge 10 extends our market leadership position by ensuring our customers can cost-effectively deliver both high densities of Fast Ethernet and fractional Gigabit Ethernet services for business applications, while supporting the multiple simultaneous streams of high-definition time-shifted IPTV—crucial for future residential deployments,” says Shane Eleniak, vice president of marketing and business development for Alloptic. “The Edge 10 supports Alloptic’s existing family of ONTs and continues our unparalleled support for the broadest range of voice, video, data, and security services with native TDM support, integrated VoIP, optional RF video, and a rich set of Ethernet and IP features.”
