CommScope launched its Coexistence portfolio, designed for service providers upgrading their existing PON networks to increase data speeds and deliver additional services without having to replace or add fiber to their existing PON infrastructure.
The CEx elements are part of CommScope’s passive optical devices and are designed for seamless integration into CommScope’s inside and outside plant fiber connectivity solutions.
CommScope said these modules integrate into the network near the optical line terminals (OLTs), enabling existing PON services to coexist with XGS-PON, NG-PON2, RF video, and optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR), as well as other current and future technologies.
CEx elements are available in four configurations (CEx 1, CEx 2, CEx 3, and CEx4), two housing styles (NG4 and LGX), and two connector types (LC/APC and SC/APC) — offering multiple configurations to suit a range of applications.
The CEx portfolio is complemented by CommScope’s dedicated fiber expertise in field deployments and network service—including the design, planning, and implementation of passive optical devices.
CommScope is showcasing the CEx solutions at booth #401 at ISE Expo, September 1 and 2.
“Our new CEx portfolio is a revolutionary solution for our GPON customers looking to achieve higher data rates and deliver new enterprise, mobile backhaul, and residential services without adding additional fiber,” said James DeCoe, vice president, Network Connectivity, CommScope.
