Verizon VP: NG-PON2 will make future fiber upgrades easier

  • Provides for a flexible, future proof network that expands beyond 10G.​
  • Consolidates subscriber management eliminating systems and simplifying operations.
 

Why choose XGS-PON over other PON technologies?

Like previous PON technologies, both XGS-PON and NG-PON2 transmit data through fiber-optic cables, offering very high-capacity connections to multiple subscribers. However, because they are intentionally designed to use different wavelengths than GPON, XGS-PON and NG-PON2 can co-exist on the same fiber, allowing for the re-use of many portions of the optical distribution network (ODN). It enables:

  • XGS-PON simplifies deployment and upgrades, you’ll save time and money, and your subscribers get their new services in days, not weeks.​
  • ​Because XGS-PON uses wavelengths outside of the spectrum allocated to NG-PON2 or GPON, the three technologies can co-exist on the same fiber. This positions BSPs to deploy XGS-PON in a shortened timeframe, helping them to immediately capture the benefits of offering a 10 Gbps service. But it will not inhibit them from future network enhancements.​
  • ​NG-PON2 can be introduced later, without requiring a major upgrade to the network and without disrupting existing XGS-PON or GPON services. Alternatively, NG-PON2 can be introduced wavelength by wavelength, allowing for a gradual investment strategy that can be set according to customer demand.
