Terawave Communications Releases New Multi-Service PON ONT for Multiple Dwelling Unit Subscribers; TW-300 MDU-T Provides Cost-Effective Broadband Data and Voice to Dense Sites.
"This product reaffirms our commitment to existing customers in the US and Russia, as well as to new customers in Europe and Asia, to provide cost-effective service solutions for residential and business subscribers," said Frank Lockwood, EVP of sales and marketing for Terawave. "The TW-300 MDU-T consolidates several functions into a single box, lowering both capital and operating costs."
The TW-300 MDU-T functions as an enhanced BPON ONT, an Ethernet data switch with VLAN and IGMP capabilities, and a DS1/E1 access device -- all in a one-RU pizza box. The box features 24 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports and 4 optional DS1/E1 ports, with single or redundant, single-fiber BPON connections. It also has an Ethernet craft management port, local and remote alarms, and single or dual power inputs. The dual-power version provides Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability, and the dual-PON version features carrier class, sub-50 millisecond 1+1 protection. As such, it can eliminate the need for SONET/SDH add-drop multiplexers in the access network.
"The TW-300 MDU represents a new, more advanced platform from which we expect to derive several variants," said Ross Ivett, VP of product marketing for Terawave. "Many of the new capabilities we have built into the MDU will also be available across the entire GPON platform we are developing for availability in 2006."
The Terawave BPON network operates symmetrically at 622 Mbps in both the upstream and downstream directions, providing ample bandwidth for broadband Internet and VPN connections, DS1/E1 TDM circuits, and TDM and IP voice services. The advanced rate control and QoS capabilities of the TW-300 MDU-T ensure that TDM services maintain the carrier class quality -- including guaranteed bandwidth, low latency and jitter -- that is required for the most demanding applications.
