SOLiD Technologies Launches ClearLight ACCESS High-Capacity Digital Distribution Solution
Increases network capacity 16-fold to enable service providers to scale their current fiber plant
September 22, 2011 (Roseburg, OR) — SOLiD Technologies has launched ClearLight ACCESS™, a high-capacity digital distribution solution that delivers 16 independent channels of traffic over a single strand of fiber. ClearLight ACCESS helps service providers achieve economies of scale and reduce both capital and operational expenditures by unlocking network capacity within an existing fiber plant.
Built upon SOLiD’s patented ClearLight LASER™ tunable optics technology, ClearLight ACCESS increases fiber plant capacity 16-fold to enable service providers to do more with their current fiber network and eliminate the expense to upgrade or build out additional fiber. The solution is robust and flexible, supporting multiplexing of 16 channels of Gigabit Ethernet, SONET or CPRI over a single core fiber in tree and branch, chain or ring topology and with no degradation in quality of service.
Additionally, ClearLight ACCESS is quick and easy to install. Because the ClearLight LASER automatically tunes and attenuates for distance, commissioning is completed in minutes, not days. The plug and play solution requires no changes to the fiber plant and eliminates the need for truck rolls to manually configure each end point on the network. ClearLight ACCESS delivers services surpassing 60km without the need for amplification or regeneration.
“Given the high cost to build out additional plant and the current worldwide shortage of fiber
, ClearLight ACCESS is the right solution at the right time for service providers who need to add fiber capacity,” said Seth Buechley, President of SOLiD Technologies. “Based upon its early market reception, ClearLight ACCESS possesses the winning combination to scale capacity while reducing costs.”
Known as MediaC-1600
during its “beta” trial period, ClearLight ACCESS has been successfully deployed by Quantum Communications
and InnerCity FiberNet
to deliver Gigabit Ethernet services where there are limited fiber resources. In 2012, ClearLight ACCESS will be enhanced to deliver an industry-first 32 channels.
Join SOLiD Technologies at the FTTH Conference & Expo
in Orlando, FL September 26 – 30. Saeed Anwar, Vice President of Business Development is presenting, “WDMPON for Fiber Saving when Resources are Depleted.” ClearLight ACCESS is being demonstrated at Booth #204.
