AEPONyXoffers products and solutions for telecommunication industry. The company specializes in meeting the demands of Metropolitan Ethernet fiber optic access service providers by offering them DWDM fiber optic access network solutions.
The company is scheduled to launch a single fiber 40-channel Metro Ethernet Access platform at the European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) 2012. The active Ethernet passive optical network (AEPON), a trademark product of AEPONyX, adopts dense wavelength division multiplexing passive optical network (DWDM-PON) technology. The new Ethernet Platform is the first of its kind in the world.
The 40-channel platform features MxC-80 small form pluggable (SFP) transceivers housed in a single 3U carrier class -48 V DC shelf outfitted with AEPONyX Colorplugs pluggable unicolor filters. Only two models of the transceivers are used throughout the entire length of DWDM channels, the first being used in the L-band of the MxC-80 and the second in the C-band of the customer equipment installed in his premises.
Each of the AEPON channel has an outside access to a DWDM component and provision for network-to-network interface (NNI) so that 40 circuits are multiplexed onto one outside fiber plant and 16 onto one NNI fiber. The AEPONyX platform thus makes cross-connection of dense and coarse WDM-PON wavelengths viable at the Ethernet level. Enabling a communication range of 60 km, the platform serves as a media for the functioning of Metro Access and Metro Transport.
Francois Menard, the CTO & Co-Founder of AEPONyX, stated that the WDM Transponder Platform gives provision for multiplexing 40 circuits onto a single fiber without compromising the strength and performance of a Carrier Ethernet network-to-network interface. This also helps in bridging the customer premise and data centers and makes the metro access available even to a distance of about 60 km outside the Ethernet platform.
Philippe Babin, the VP Sales and Marketing of AEPONyX, assures that the WDM-PON based 40-Channel Single Fiber Transponder Platform helps metro access customers earn a huge sum of money through their fiber networks.
