Ethernet Optics for Access Networks

Secure High-Speed EtherOptics



Nebula Technology Integrated into Major Utilities Network

VANCOUVER, B.C.—Aug. 19, 2011—Nebula Manufacturing Inc., supplier of advanced optical access equipment for Ethernet services, today announced the implementation of Nebula technology supporting a long haul, high bandwidth, fiber optic facility by a major North American utility,

Put in place to support the communications requirements of significant utility infrastructure, the 500 km, 10 GB/sec dedicated fiber connection utilizes Nebula HC components for optical signal amplification and dispersion compensation. In addition to the communications’ end points, two remotely located, Nebula equipped repeater stations, spaced approximately 200 km apart, both boost signal strength and retain coherency.

Nebula HC optical networking solutions are designed to traverse significant distances under adverse climate conditions with minimal signal loss, permitting reliable and cost effective connection between points of presence 200-300 km apart without compromising data transmission integrity.

“Reliable, high bandwidth communications is increasingly essential for today’s utilities and for those with remote assets, that often means extended reach fiber-optics.”  said Peter Schmelcher, Nebula’s founder and CTO. “This deployment demonstrates the ability of Nebula’s equipment to cost effectively deliver fiber based, high capacity communications to remote and harsh environments.
