Duration: 60 min
There is much discussion in the industry as to which direction vendors and broadband providers should turn for next-generation passive optical network (PON) technology. As gigabit services become increasingly available, broadband providers are turning an eye to what is next, and while there is general agreement on 10 gigabit service, there are technology and business choices to make in choosing a solution.
Industry veterans driving the creation and adoption of 10G PON standards will discuss two newly minted ITU standards, XGS-PON and NG-PON2, highlighting the pros and cons of each. The webinar also explores the applications driving the transition to 10G PON and the importance of technology advances in tunable optics.
