Sivers IMA Holdings AB subsidiary, CST Global, has added 1490nm, 2.5Gbps, GPON (Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network) lasers to its fiber to the home (FTTH) product portfolio, following successful beta testing. 

This downstream data transmission laser complements CST Global’s existing, 1310nm, 1.25/2.5Gbps and 1270nm, 2.5/10 Gbps DFB lasers for FTTH. These three FTTH laser options mean that CST Global now offers a great, combined solution for the fast-growing, GPON market.

“We are pleased that CST Global’s investment in 1490nm, DFB laser development has fast-tracked its availability. The GPON market is growing quickly, especially in markets like China and India where we sold over 2 million units in 2017. Adding the new 1490nm, 2.5Gbps, GPON laser to our standard product range increases our opportunity to meet rising demand,” comments Anders Storm, CEO of Sivers IMA Holding AB.

CST Global is a Glasgow-based, wholly-owned subsidiary of Sivers IMA Holding and the UK’s leading, independent, III-V opto-electronic, semi-conductor foundry.
