O-Band Athermal AWG DWDM MUX/DMX Technology for 5G Fronthaul Optical Data Transport Network Solution

POINTek Inc. a leading provider of DWDM optical mux/demultiplexer globally with manufacturing operations in Korea - today announced the availability of its new DWDM AWG multi/demultiplexer product, which can be used for 5G wireless fronthaul optical data transport network solution.  The product has been tested and produced in mass quantity for 5G specific wireless fronthaul data transport application by a Tier 1 Mobile Network Operator (MNO). With this new product, MNO is able to integrate the multichannel O-band DWDM capability into the existing optical fiber lines.  And to some MNOs whose prime concern is to make the most economical and efficient use of fiber investment, the availability of O-band DWDM AWGs will be a welcoming news as laying additional fiber infrastructure is quite expensive.

Super Athermal AWGs for Extreme Temperature Applications

POINTek, Inc., a global leader and provider of high performance athermal AWGs (AAWGs) and optical module packaging services, today announced the release of Super Athermal AWGs that could be used for denser channel DWDM applications like 25GHz DWDM as well as the extreme temperature operating environment applications such as -40°C ~ 85°C for outside plant deployments.
Conventional athermal AWGs are made to support a total of 60pm or larger wavelength drift, which amounts to compensating 0.5pm/°C shift in the operating temperature range of -40°C to 85°C. In POINTek's Super AAWG which is based on IP-pending optical packaging technology, the Super AAWGs can be made to support a total of only 20pm or less wavelength drift, equivalent to 0.15pm/°C shift; hence such Super AAWG can sufficiently withstand the industrial temperature operational range of  -40°C ~ 85°C.
