PONS- Passive Optical Networks

FTTC-FTTX- FTTB- FTTC- FTTH-Fiber To The Home- Fiber To The Curb Technology Recent Developments

American Tech Supply offers Passive Optical Network Testing and Consulting Services.
Passive Optical Networks (PONs) are an emerging broadband, multi-services, access technology allowing the benefits of fiber optic transmission to be pushed closer to the customer, including directly to the customer location. Installed first costs are reduced by allowing optical transceiver at the network end of the access system to be shared with many customers and minimizing the number of trunk/feeder fibers (i.e., fibers leaving the network's OLT function). Operations costs are reduced by the passive nature of the optical distribution network. SEE BELOW


Our fiber optic assemblies meet or exceed GR-326-CORE, Single-mode Optical Connector testing and GR-20-CORE, Optical Fiber and Optical Fiber Cable specifications from Bellcore- Telecordia. ATS's carries fiber optic jumper assemblies inluding singlemode fiber optic jumpers, multimode fiber optic assmeblies, bulk fiber optic cable, fiber optic enclosures and fiber optic panels loaded with a variety of fiber optic adapters and a complete line of fiber optic test equipment. All our fiber optic equipment including fiber optic assemblies are manufactured from strict Telecordia guidelines.

The communications industry is on the cusp of a revolution that will transform the landscape. This revolution is characterized by three fundamental drivers. First, deregulation has opened the local loop to competition, launching a whole new class of carriers that are spending billions to build out their networks and develop innovative new services. Second, the rapid decline in the cost of fiber optics and Ethernet equipment is beginning to make them an attractive option in the access network. Third, the Internet has spawned genuine demand for broadband services, leading to unprecedented growth in Internet protocol (IP) data traffic and putting pressure on carriers to upgrade their networks.

These drivers are, in turn, promoting two new key market trends. First, deployment of fiber optics is extending from the backbone to the wide-area network (WAN) and the metropolitan-area network (MAN) and will soon penetrate into the local loop. Second, Ethernet is spreading from the local-area network (LAN) to the MAN and the WAN as the uncontested standard.

The convergence of these factors is leading to a fundamental paradigm shift in the communications industry, a shift that will ultimately lead to widespread adoption of a new optical IP Ethernet architecture that combines the best of fiber optics and Ethernet technologies. This architecture is poised to become the dominant means of delivering bundled data, video, and voice services over a single platform.
