Bit-Interleaved Passive Optical Network Technology


Published on

In Late March 2012, the GreenTouch Consortium announced and demonstrated a new technology that will dramatically reduce energy consumption in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks, as well as other applications. The breakthrough Bit-Interleaved Passive Optical Network (Bi-PON) technology is the second major milestone reached by the consortium. When deployed, it will enable a power reduction of 30 times over current technologies while improving performance and reducing cost.

  4. 4. Today’s News: Breakthrough Tech for Wireline• The Problem: In current fiber-to-the-home architectures, all data isprocessed but 99% is unused• With FTTH expected to nearly double over the next five years—to 142million subscribers worldwide—energy consumption is a major concern• GreenTouch Solution: New bit-interleaving passive optical network (Bi-PON) technology, which can reduce carbon footprint equal to taking halfa million cars off the road• Bell Labs, IMEC, INRIA and Orange collaborated in GreenTouch WirelineWorking Group to demonstrate how Bi-PON can improve energyefficiency by more than an order of magnitude over current technology.
