OKI Develops World’s First 160Gbps Ultra High-speed Optical Next Generation Access Asymmetric PON System

Enables a high-definition, high quality video service for movie distribution and telemedicine
OKI Electric Industry (TSE: 6703) today announced it has succeeded in developing the World’s first 160Gbps ultra high-speed optical next generation access (NGA) asymmetric PON system using hybrid Optical Time Division Multiplexing (OTDM) and Optical Code Division Multiplexing (OCDM)(*1). 160Gbps is equivalent to sending 6 channels of uncompressed ultra high-definition video or 33 channels of high-definition video per second. Transmitting signals at a speed of 160Gbps on a single optical fiber downstream means super high-resolution and high quality video delivery service that requires data of over 1GB, such as movie distribution and telemedicine, can be offered.

The research that led to OKI’s achievement was conducted …
