Mountain View, Calif.BroadLight launched what it claims is the industry's first quad GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) OLT (optical line terminal) controller.
According to BroadLight, the BL3458 provides the industry's highest integration for packet and TDM transport over ITU-T G.984 GPON and dramatically reduces power, space and costs for multi-port OLTs.
The BL3458 is built on the interoperability-proven single-port BL3238 GPON OLT MAC. The BL3458 also includes an embedded processor for easy device provisioning and acceleration of Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA) over four GPONs.
The BL3458 integrates the Burst-mode CDR, provides flexibility in TR-101 compliant traffic mapping and features seamless connectivity to the leading Ethernet switches and network processors.
PONjacket software simplifies OLT development and speeds time-to-market by enabling the BL3458 to operate autonomously implementing the field proven and ITU-T interoperable G.984 PON stack over all GPON links.
The BL3458 development system is a 1 RU chassis based system which is comprised of two ATCA AMC GPON OLT 4-port modules with standard SFP GPON OLT transceivers. Up to 8 GPON links can be serviced through the development system's two 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplink interfaces.
