Source Photonics launches XGS-PON N2 OLT transceiver

Source Photonics has launched the XGS-PON N2 OLT optical module, which it claims is the first in the market to offer a universal upgrade path from existing GPON networks to next-generation XGS-PON networks.

The new transceiver meets the N2 class maximum optical link budget of 31dB in the XGS-PON standard G.9807.1, thus providing operators with a single module that supports the upgrade of both B+ and C+ class GPON networks to XGS-PON.
