Precision OT Launches New Line of Optical Components to Support FTTX and 5G

Precision OTIf there is one thing that Chris Page, CTO of New York-based Precision OT is adamant about, it’s that “5G and other transformative technologies rely heavily on the density of fiber optic cables within existing access networks.”

For years, Precision OT has been making a name for itself by offering NEM-compatible devices such as transceivers and fiber jumpers, which are rigorously tested before being shipped into real-world networks. As the wider optical networking industry increasingly shifts towards fiber-deep architectures and 5G rollouts, the company has made another bold step. Earlier today, Precision OT launched a new line of SFP GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) transceivers and a full line of GPON splitters. Together, these new GPON products will support service providers as they continue working to deliver next generation access services to bandwidth-hungry subscribers.

According to ResearchandMarkets, the global GPON market will reach a total value of $8.3 billion by 2025, up from $5.8 billion at the end of 2019. The growth of this market is being driven largely by surging demand for high-speed, triple and quad-play broadband services, including fixed internet, mobile internet, telephony and television products. The move toward more comprehensive 5G rollouts is also a significant factor. As New Electronics recently reported, service providers are largely investing in new, fiber-deep network architectures to attract new business not only from internet service and TV providers, but also 5G operators in need of connecting numerous small-cell base stations.

“GPON is a key steppingstone for MSOs to provide the high bandwidth, high performance services their subscribers are demanding. Going this route helps save both CAPEX and OPEX by replacing legacy copper wires with more efficient fiber optic cables and eliminating the need for expensive network switches. Designed and tested to the same rigorous standards as all our other equipment, our new line of GPON optics and our multiplexer/demultiplexer filter model will make it easier for our customers to evolve their access networks on an ongoing basis.” – Chris Page, CTO, Precision OT

All of Precision OT’s GPON optics are bidirectional, support transmission distances between 20km and 40km and are resilient for both commercial and industrial temperatures.

Whether it be existing network augments or green field buildouts, Precision OT is set to play a strong role in helping service providers integrate more fiber into their end deployment sectors.

Additionally, Precision OT and Light Reading will be hosting a webinar on PON-WDM technologies on May 20 at 11am EST. To register, contact [email protected].
