SAN DIEGO - OFC 2008, February 27 /PRNewswire/ -- ColorChip, a leading developer and provider of fiber optics components based on PLC technology, announced today the release of the Meteor II GPON Class B Enhanced diplexer transceiver for the FTTH market. "We are delivering a solution that addresses the need for a high performance GPON diplexer transceiver with a reach of 20km yet with a competitive price," said Moshe Price, CEO of ColorChip. "Our new Meteor II GPON Class B Enhanced transceiver was designed to provide a low cost transceiver for GPON networks with a requirement of a 20km reach." This high performance transceiver includes a DFB laser, with a typical output power of +2.5dBm and a PIN receiver with a typical sensitivity of -28dBm, for a downstream bit rate of 2.488Gbps and an up stream bit rate of 1.244Gbps. "This product is a strong alternative that may pave the way to the elimination of the APD receiver from the transceivers in the ONT," said Jaime Reloj, VP of sales at ColorChip. "This will result in a lower cost GPON ONT and will reduce the total GPON network cost."
