Finisar’s Inaugural Exhibition at Cable-Tec Expo

This blog post is provided by Shawn Esser, Director of Product Line Management at Finisar.

For the first time, Finisar exhibited at the Cable-Tec Expo held at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center from November 15-17, 2011. The overall attendance increased by 24 percent at the premiere trade show of the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE); topping 10,000 attendees. In addition to the strong attendance from the United States, international attendance was up 21 percent from more than 60 countries.

Finisar displayed its latest fiber optic products to Multiple System Operators (MSO) and network equipment providers. A live demonstration was shown of Finisar’s EPON ONU SFP which allows service providers to utilize standard switches, routers and other customer premises equipment (CPE) to connect directly to PON networks. The demonstration showed video being carried over an EPON network with 20km of optical fiber being received into Finisar’s ONU SFP installed in a common Ethernet media convertor. Finisar also showed its GPON version of the ONU SFP.

Attendees were also impressed with Finisar’s wavelength tunable XFP modules that cover the entire C-band wavelength range, leading optical passives for PON networks, and RF-over-Fiber products that natively carry RF signals up to 40 GHz.
