Planar lightwave circuit PLC splitter is a type of optical power
management device that is widely used in PON networks to realize
optical signal power splitting. Mini steel tube type PLC splitter features small size, high
reliability, good channel-to-channel uniformity, and work in
temperature range from -40ºC to +85ºC.

1. What is PLC Splitter?
PLC splitter is also called Planar Lightwave Circuit Splitter,
developed using silica glass waveguide circuits and aligned fiber
pigtails, integrated inside a miniature package. PLC splitter has a
wide operation wavelength range from 1260 nm to 1620 nm, and works
in temperature range from -40 to +85.
PLC Splitter is a key component in fiber access networks, used to
distribute the signal from CO to numbers of premises. The highly
stable splitter performs low insertion loss, low input polarization
sensitivity, excellent uniformity, and low return loss in 1xN or
2xN port configurations.
PLC splitters are designed for FTTx Passive Optical Networks, CWDM,
DWDM and optical cable TV System, and fully meet Telcordia
GR-1209-CORE, Telcordia GR-1221-CORE.YD/T1117-2001 standards.
2. Why Do We Need PLC Splitter?
PLC stands for Planar Lightwave Circuit, PLC splitters are used to
distribute or combine optical signals in Passive Optical Networks.
With small form factor and high reliability and based on planar
lightwave circuit technology, PLC fiber optic splitter provides a
low cost light distribution solution for fiber access networks.
3. How Does a PLC Splitter Work?
PLC Splitters are installed in each optical network between the PON
Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and the Optical Network Terminals
(ONTs) that the OLT serves. Networks implementing BPON, GPON, EPON,
10G EPON, and 10G GPON technologies all use these simple optical
splitters. In place of an optical splitter, a WDM PON network will
use an Arrayed WaveGuide (AWG).
What Is one of the most Important function should really a PLC
PON (Passive Optical Network) splitters play an important role in
Fiber to the Home (FTTH) networks by allowing a single PON network
interface to be shared among many subscribers. This optical fiber
splitter contains no electronics & power used. As a passive
network device widely used in fiber optical communication, PLC
fiber splitters are available in a variety of split configurations,
including 1xN & 2xN.
4. Different kinds of PLC Splitters
PLC splitter family has two series: 1xN plc splitter and 2xN plc
splitter(N=2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 and 128). Such as splitter 1x2,
splitter 1x4. All of the specifications can be tailored for
different applications and markets.
- Blackless PLC fiber splitter
Blockless PLC fiber optic splitters are available with stainless
steel tube packed, features compact design. The input / output
fibers could be 250um bare fibers with no fiber optic connectors
terminated (Bare Fiber PLC Splitter) or 900um fibers with or
without fiber optic connectors terminated.
- ABS box type PLC fiber splitter
ABS box type PLC fiber optic splitter features black plastic box
package, the input / output fibers are ruggedized up to 3.0mm
diameter with fiber optic connectors pre-terminated, more suitable
for harsh environment installation.
- Cassette Type PLC Fiber Splitter
Cassette type PLC splitter is having miniature packaged PLC
splitters packed in plug type plastic box or LGX fiber cassette,
input/output ends of PLC splitter are pre-assembled with adapters
on the cassette.
- Rack mount PLC fiber splitters
Rack mount PLC fiber splitters are available with PLC splitters
packed in fiber panels, the input / output ports are pre-assembled
with adapters on the panel. They are standardly 19 inch rack
5. Where to get PLC Splitter?
According to installation environment, PLC splitters are available
in package of steel tube, ABS box, rack mount panel, tray, LGX
cassette etc. The port configurations cover a range of 1x2, 2x2,
1x4, 1x8, 1x16, 1x32, 1x64. FOCONEC offers different PON splitter solutions to realized difference optical light distributions for
fiber access network from CO to multi users.
