California access device start-up Tibit Communications has announced the availability of what is billed as the world’s first fully pluggable Optical Line Terminal – OLT.
The Tibit MicroPlug™ OLT is a complete network access device for 10 Gigabit Passive Optical Networking (PON). According to Tibit, it dramatically reduces the footprint, power consumption, cost, and amount of application-specific hardware needed for network deployments.
The new OLT form factor is designed to revolutionize PON market dynamics by enabling switch vendors to easily extend their widely-deployed portfolio of 10G switch ports to support 10G PON. Tibit’s standards-based small-format pluggable (SFP+) solution reduces the physical footprint of today’s chassis-based and card-based solutions by 95% and lowers power consumption by 75%.
