The agreement with Optical Zonu allows NSG to expand its coverage into the FTTx market for active components by leveraging NSG’s Original Opti-Sourcing Services with Zonu’s expertise in Passive Optical Network (PON) technology. NSG created Original Opti-Sourcing as a service to offer manufacturing capabilities to its customers in the optical communications market together with the company’s design and development capabilities in optics. By utilizing the company’s vast global resources, customers are provided with a “One Stop Shop”for all their optical component manufacturing needs. One approach used to provide such a “One Stop Shop”is to procure specialized technology through partnerships from industry leaders such as Optical Zonu.
For global FTTx/PON markets under its Opti-Sourcing manufacturing services, NSG has been shipping WDM modules for Optical Line Terminals (OLT) and optical splitters for distribution networks in volume. With this partnership, NSG is able to offer end-to-end solutions for FTTx/PON applications. Triplexers are added in Optical Network Units (ONU) to provide an analog Cable TV (CATV) and/or a DBS (DirectTV, Dish) overlay in B-PON, GE-PON and G-PON systems.
“NSG has manufacturing capacity and knowledge of volume production while we have expertise in optical and electrical design for the access networks. By working together we will bring to the market low cost optical triplexers in high volume production. This partnership between NSG and Optical Zonu allows us to continue to focus on product development such as a complete Optical Network Terminal (ONT) version product for FTTx/PON applications,” says Dr. Meir Bartur, President & CEO of Optical Zonu.
