KDPOF proudly announces that Comtrend has implemented their Gigabit Ethernet POF (GEPOF) technology in order to provide guaranteed connectivity within home networks. “Comtrend have preferred our POF optical transceiver KD1001 for their new device since more and more Service Providers require a way to secure robust connectivity with very low latency, reduced jitter, fast download speeds, and flawless connectivity for video,” stated Carlos Pardo, CEO and Co-founder of KDPOF. Comtrend’s new product provides two POF and two Ethernet ports in order to allow daisy chain topologies. “Service Providers worldwide will benefit from being able to deliver guaranteed 1 Gigabit connectivity into homes by combining the POF backbone with Wi-Fi Mesh.” 

Plastic Optical Fiber Backbone Complements Wi-Fi Mesh for Guaranteed Gigabit Performance

For customers that demand assured performance, POF is the preferred option. POF cables are practically invisible since installers can reuse any existing conduits or install in a very unnoticeable way in the home. Plastic Optical Fiber is cost-efficient, robust, and much easier and quicker to install than Cat 6 cables. 

KDPOF will present their in-home robust optical backbone connectivity at stand B40 at the Broadband World Forum on October 15 to 17, 2019 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In his presentation ”Gbps: Do Customers Care?” on October 16, 2019 at 10:05, Ramón Garcia, Business Development Manager with KDPOF, will discuss how to satisfy Gbps customers and thereby increase the number of subscribers willing to pay for qualified bandwidth instead of sole connectivity.

Demo: Test Setup on ECU Compliance for ISO 21111-5 Standard

In this video, KDPOF displays the test setup used by the test houses to validate the compliance of ECUs with regards to the ISO 21111-5 standard. Luis Manuel Torres from KDPOF shows how KDPOF in partnership with Granite River Labs (Test house), Aukua (Ethernet test and monitoring solutions), and Keysight Technologies (Test equipment and solutions) has implemented the ISO 21111-5 standard. The setup uses five Gigabit Ethernet Plastic Optical Fiber (GEPOF) ports. This demo will also be shown at the Granite River Labs stand C12 at the upcoming IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day on September 24 to 25, 2019 in Detroit, Michigan, USA. 

ELIV VDI Congress: KDPOF Demos Galvanic Isolation of Gigabit Ethernet POF
ELIV VDI Congress: KDPOF Demos Galvanic Isolation of Gigabit Ethernet POF

On October 16 to 17 at stand 38 at the International ELIV (ELectronics In Vehicles) VDI Congress in Bonn, Germany, KDPOF will present their optical Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity with high electromagnetic compatibility. Due to its inherent galvanic isolation, POF perfectly solves the electrical and interference challenges of new powertrain architectures for electric and autonomous driving. In battery management systems, galvanic isolation is necessary between primary and secondary systems. KDPOF recently announced that the first application of a Battery Management System (BMS) based on optical connectivity will soon go into production. By the end of 2019, the first carmaker will start assembly of a battery management system with POF connectivity.

We look forward to meeting you in Bonn. To set up a meeting, please contact Juergen Schachtschneider.

KDPOF Presents Gigabit Ethernet POF at IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day
KDPOF Presents Gigabit Ethernet POF at IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day

KDPOF will present their optical Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity with high electromagnetic compatibility at stand A18 at the upcoming IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day on September 24 to 25, 2019 in Detroit, Michigan, USA. Due to its inherent galvanic isolation, POF perfectly solves the electrical and interference challenges of new powertrain architectures for electric and autonomous driving. In battery management systems, galvanic isolation is necessary between primary and secondary systems due to hazardous high voltages and noise isolation. Further applications that rely on the inherent Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) of POF are Integrated Smart Antenna (ISA) modules. For ISA, KDPOF and ALPS have developed a concept for an LTE-A telematics control module with POF links to the central communications hub in order to avoid interference with the smart antenna receivers. KDPOF’s GEPOF transceiver KD1053 provides high connectivity with a flexible digital host interface, low latency, low jitter, and low linking time. 

We look forward to meeting you in Detroit. To set up a meeting, please contact Óscar Ciordia.
