With an ever increasing consumer demand for ubiquitous internet access at home, work, and via mobile phones, the need for high capacity optical networks is at an all time high. Whether the application is long haul, regional, metro, access, wireless back haul, IP backbones, PON, or video distribution, Go!Foton offers a full line of essential optical components required to create high performance, reliable optical communications networks.
The Go!Foton product lineup includes Wavelength Division Multiplexers, Optical Couplers/Splitters/taps and detectors for optical power monitoring. Products are available in discrete packages or as customized integrated modules. Go!Foton offers a full range of solution options based on specific application requirements and budget.
Wavelength Division Multiplexing is a fundamental building block in high capacity optical communications networks. The Go!Foton line of passive WDM products is built on a thin film filter technology and our proprietary SELMUX™ packaging platform. Products include 100G and 200G DWDM, Coarse WDM, and Edge WDM. These products are ROHS 6 of 6 compliant, qualified to Telcordia GR1221 standards, and validated for outside plant operating temperatures of -40C to +85C.
Optical Modules for PON and VPON Overlay
The transceivers are designed for point-to-multipoint (P2MP) WDM single fiber configurations (PON). In general, 1.31, 1.55 and 1.49 μm wavelengths are used. In particular, in the upstream, the uniquely designed burst-mode (BM) transmitter in the ONU module and BM RX in the OLT module make the system design simpler and less costly. The modules are made of compact 2×5 or 2×6 small form factor (SFF) with a SM pigtail, SC receptacle or a small form pluggable (SFP) with SC receptacle, unless a custom feature is requested.
Go!Foton has developed devices for video-overlay applications including 3-wavelength video splitters and a compact / low-cost video receiver. These products are readily usable in conjunction with 3W-TRX™ equipped ONU modules.
Reach Extenders, Line Combiner
Go!Foton presents the ZB2G Repeater for Optical Access Networks. Available for APON, BPON, GPON, GEPON, Turbo-EPON and other Access Networks. These repeaters can increase the number of splits in the PON (>128) and extend the transmission distance to over 60km (depending on delay tolerance of OLT MAC).
Go!Foton brings you the PON 8-Channel Line Combiner Pair. An active (C)WDM PON Solution for expanding networks. A pair combines 8 PON lines and increases the fiber usage efficiency 8 fold. In addition, the combiner pair extends the PON transmission distance, significantly.
CWDM Optical Power Tester
The Handheld CWDM Optical Power Tester designed to offer complete utility for Installers, Network IT Personnel, and Customer Service Technicians. Any single Fiber, Full Duplex, CWDM, SFP Transceiver over Single Wavelength (SFC) device can be plugged into the Tester and Full Functionality can be verified as well as SFC Wavelength and Power Measurements. The unit can also be used to Test the Optical Power and Identify Incoming Signals. The LCD Digital Read-Out displays all of the Key Parameters of the plugged SFC Transceiver in addition to individual LED’s which indicate individual ITU CWDM Wavelength information.
Ultra High Density PEACOC™ Fiber Management Frame for data center and telecom applications. The Go!Foton PEACOC (Patch panel with Enhanced Access for Compact Optical Connectors) Frame boasts easy, tool-less access to 144 standard simplex LC terminations per 1RU for 19″ racks and 162 standard simplex LC terminations per 1RU for 21″ racks, an industry first. Higher density fiber distribution frames allow telecom and data center providers to more efficiently and more cost effectively manage the explosive growth of fiber connections. The PEACOC frame is scalable in increments of 1RU for “pay as you grow” convenience and cost efficiency. A single, fully loaded frame supports over 6000 fiber terminations using standard LC connectors. The port density can be increased even further with the use of smaller form factor connectors, or by using multi-fiber push-on (MPO) connectors. This novel design incorporates Go!Foton’s patent pending PEACOC technology, an innovative, “large finger friendly” fiber jumper management solution that requires no special tools. The Go!Foton PEACOC technology addresses the biggest drawback associated with the use of high density fiber distribution frames today, namely, the difficulty in handling the compact optical connectors to perform fiber jumper management. With PEACOC technology, each individual optical connection can be easily isolated from adjacent optical connections providing a generous region of unobstructed handling space for safe, error free fiber management.
Fiber!Fast™ Indoor Living Unit (ILU) Solutions for FTTH deployment in MDUs
The Fiber!Fast™ Indoor Living Unit (ILU) Solutions. Fiber!Fast™ ILU is an innovative MDU drop cable solution that allows service providers to bring FTTH service to existing MDU living units in a faster and easier fashion. Fiber!Fast™ ILU reduces a carrier’s installation costs and minimizes the disruption and aesthetic objections often associated with retrofitting service cables in existing MDU living units.
Fiber!Fast™ ILU consists of a new 900um drop cable with G657.B3 fiber, the most advanced bend optimized fiber manufactured by Samsung Electronics. The translucent Fiber!Fast™ cable is easily attached to a variety of wall surfaces using simple and discrete plastic clips. Designed and manufactured by Go!Foton, the pathway management toolkit provided with Fiber!Fast™ ILU includes a variety of these clips along with a small tube of specially formulated epoxy which can be applied at discrete points along the cable or smeared like painters caulk, resulting in a truly invisible installation that may be painted by the homeowner if desired. The unique design also provides exceptional mechanical protection when routing the optical drop cable around inside and outside corners. Often missing from other MDU cable solutions, corner protection prevents excessive bending and the formation of stress points on the cable.
Go!Foton’s Avalanche Photodiode (APD) is suitable for 10 Gbps applications in optical communications including long haul receivers and SONET/SDH receivers. With a 1000 to 1625nm Spectral Response, the new InGaAs Avalanche Photodiode (APD) with Integrated Lens, 10 Gbps(Chip-on-Carrier) product has a planer structure for high reliability, a back illuminated structure and the optical signal goes through the integrated lens on the back surface.
