BroadLight to promote XGPON technology in Korea

BroadLight, a supplier of fiber access processors,
announced its collaboration partnership with Korea’s National Electronics and
Telecommunications Research Institute, ETRI.


This collaborative partnership entails both companies’
efforts to ensure a fully standardized XGPON (ITU-T G.987) initial deployment
in Korea. BroadLight and ETRI are using their existing XGPON OLT and ONT
technology for end to end interoperability testing.



The test plan is based on efforts by FSAN to launch the
first worldwide XGPON interoperability event. BroadLight
plays an instrumental role in preparing this test plan as part of its active
role with FSAN.



BroadLight’s collaboration with ETRI is an important
initiative towards promoting XGPON technology in the Korean market.
Collaborating with BroadLight, we can ensure XGPON’s first commercial trial
will be successful,” said Youngsun Kim, VP Honam Research Center of ETRI.



Aside from this being a great opportunity for BroadLight
to contribute its knowhow in end to end PON solutions, it will provide us with
further insight into the existing challenges for market requirements in
relation to BroadLight’s own product development,” said Didi Ivancovsky,
Founder and VP Carriers Strategy at BroadLight.
