Somerset, NJ --  Go!Foton Corporation, a global leader in innovative fiber connectivity solutions  announced today that its PEACOC™ high density fiber management platform has been recognized as a winner in the 2018 Lightwave Innovation Reviews Program.   PEACOC addresses the architectural and business needs of Central Offices and Data Centers looking to implement emerging dense fiber applications such as 5G, C-RAN, NG-PON2, and Ultra Long Haul transmission.

Presented annually by Lightwave, the Lightwave Innovation Reviews program distinguishes top products and solutions available within the optical networking industry as determined by a stellar panel of independent, third-party judges. Judges include industry executives and analysts from a wide variety of service providers, technology developers, industry analysts, and journalists. "On behalf of the Lightwave Innovation Reviews, I would like to congratulate our winners," said Lightwave Group Publisher Christine Shaw. "The 2018 program was highly competitive, and the top scoring companies exemplify innovation in the optical networking industry."

Go!Foton’s PEACOC platform is fully compliant with Telcordia’s GR-449 as are the many port monitor taps, xWDM filters, and PLC splitters which are available in a modular PEACOC FleTTM – a flexible cassette tray which gives PEACOC users complete control to reconfigure the PEACOC 1RU chassis in the field.   According to Go!Foton’s VP & GM of Connectivity Solutions, Michael Zammit,  “PEACOC with enhanced FleT technology is a totally fresh approach to value added cassette modules which gives network operators an uncanny degree of flexibility to solve a wide variety of network challenges. We’re thrilled to be recognized as an Innovation Award winner by the Lightwave judges for the far-reaching impact PEACOC is already having on CPRI tapping and CRAN-Hub densification projects for some of the leading Tier 1 service providers.”
