Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:New FFTH-PON Network for extended numbers of usersA new Passive-Optical-Network (PON) for Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) services has been developed in the frame of the National Research Project TEYDE. While current FTTH networks as GPON and EPON can reach a maximum of 32-64 users, the proposed PON can serve more than 4000 users, thanks to a new device for distributing the signal among the users that intelligently recycles the noise generated by other elements of the network. Partners to further develop the device and/or to establish license agreements with technical cooperation are sought.

Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:OPTICAL REMOTE NODE DEVICE AND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT FOR CONSTRUCTING AND EXTENDING FIBRE-OPTIC ACCESS NETWORKSThe Remote Node performs all-optical interfacing between a metropolitan ring and the access trees to the homes, thus enabling a transparent metro-access converged optical network. The device performs the functions of wavelength add&drop, ring protection and optical amplification with remote pumping. It is composed by a number of optical elements not requiring electrical power supply.
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Homodyne receiver with post-processing for optical communicationsIn high bit rate optical transmission, the use of a coherent homodyne receiver will largely increase the communication capacity and enhance the transmission performances. The proposed receiver is potentially large scale integrable, thus being useful for access network transceivers, and other applications which require low-cost and high performance receivers.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Scalable aperture-combined optical telescopeCSIC and the Astrohita Foundation have developed a telescope, which comprises several optical assemblies that focus the light from a target on individual optical fibers, which are combined together in a final single optical fiber. The rest of the light is simultaneously collected in image devices, which record the field of view of each optical assembly. The gathered images are summed together to achieve a high-quality final image. These telescopes are not of interest only in the field of astronomy but also in the tracking of satellites and space junk. Industrial partners from the Astronomy, Astrophysics and telecommunications sector are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.
