PRESS RELEASE

NeoPhotonics Announces Embedded OTDR Capability for PON Transceivers

New Optical Line Terminal Transceiver Features Embedded Optical Time Domain Reflectometer

Capabilities for In Service Fiber Monitoring

San Jose, California – NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuits, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced an optical line terminal (OLT) transceiver with embedded Optical Time Domain Reflectometer (eOTDR) for gigabit passive optical networks (GPON) in an SFP form factor and for use in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks.

This new eOTDR OLT transceiver was designed in collaboration with leading broadband access network equipment manufacturers and is designed to offer FTTH operators a cost effective way to monitor their fiber infrastructure during network operation. The eOTDR OLT represents the latest addition to the NeoPhotonics PON transceiver portfolio, which includes innovative modules such as the Mode Coupling Receiver (MCR) OLT announced last month during ECOC (European Conference on Optical Communications) in Amsterdam, as well as a full range of GPON, GEPON and 10G PON transceivers.

“We are excited to introduce our eOTDR OLT SFP, which is designed to enable our customers to provide an integrated fiber monitoring solution instead of the current standalone test and measurement approach,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “The eOTDR represents another example of innovative NeoPhotonics solutions designed to lower the overall cost of FTTH network rollout and operation,” continued Mr. Jenks.

FTTH has become a key wireline broadband access technology for the 21st century, and PON represents one of the most widely deployed network architectures. In their continuous drive to reduce network operations costs, telecommunications carriers around the world are integrating fault location and management into their operating systems to minimize traffic outages and revenue loss. These practices are already common in high bandwidth links at the core of the network, but with data rates growing in broadband access networks, the need is growing to do the same at the edge of the network. The NeoPhotonics eOTDR OLT is designed to address that need as its monitoring functions can be integrated with the network management system, thus allowing a continuous view of the access fiber infrastructure.
