KDDI R&D Laboratories, a subsidiary of KDDI Corp., has concluded lab testing on Novera Optics' -PON (Lambda-passive optical network) dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology to conduct a feasibility study for use in next-generation transport services. Over a three-month period of laboratory testing, KDDI has recorded positive results for Novera's DWDM technology for providing future services. KDDI also will begin a study of new products for broadband services with WDM-PON technologies.

With point-to-point, bidirectional optical links through a single feeder fiber, Novera's DWDM transport solutions provide easy upgrade paths, symmetrical downstream and upstream bandwidth, and multiprotocol transparency for fiber-to-the-x applications. Eliminating the need for expensive, wavelength-specific optical network units, Novera's technology solves the problems of bandwidth sharing, bandwidth upgrades, and mixed-service delivery on a PON.

"Novera's DWDM technology tested very positively in our lab trials," said Dr. Yukio Horiuchi, senior manager of the optical access network laboratory, KDDI. "With the testing completed, we are now starting to discuss potential next-generation products and applications, and we are excited about the possibilities of working with Novera Optics."

"A company in the optical networking industry has many potential partners with whom to engage in service trials," said Bernd Hesse, VP of marketing and business development at Novera Optics. "It is a great honor to have our DWDM-PON technology validated by this industry leader and have an opportunity to study more advanced products and applications with KDDI R&D Laboratories."
