Huawei claims breakthrough in 100Gbps-PON technology

Huawei has claimed a breakthrough in 100Gbps-Passive Optical Network (PON) optical access. The technology uses a hybrid time-division and wavelength-division architecture to support 4 x 25Gbit/s downstream rate and a 4x 10 Gbit/s upstream rate thus, according to the company, enabling 100Gbps access rate per port on existing optical distribution networks (ODNs).
