Frequently Asked Questions about Calix AXOS NG-PON2 Solutions

What is NG-PON2?

  • NG-PON2 (Next Generation Passive Optical Network 2, or ITU-T G.989) is the first multi-wavelength access standard
  • NG-PON2 supports from 4 to 8 wavelengths of 10 Gbps each over a single fiber
  • Premises tunable lasers and receivers enable multi-gigabit broadband services

What is XGS-PON?

  • XGS-PON is a 10G symmetric standard (ITU G.9807.1) deployed similar to GPON

Which Calix AXOS systems support XGS-PON and NG-PON2?

What Applications are Driving Next Gen PON?

MDU Residential Services

  • New technologies like G.fast deployed in multi-tenant buildings require higher fiber-to-the-building speeds than today's 2.5 GPON or point-to-point gigabit Ethernet

Business and Mobile Services

  • Businesses need multi-gigabit speeds, symmetrical services, and committed service rates
  • Business and business service types can be isolated on dedicated wavelengths for security and QOS

SFU Residential Services

  • Bandwidth contention among device-enabled subscribers for cloud-enhanced services is requiring more bandwidth (and 4K UHD video is on the horizon)
  • Open Access networks are driving the need for multiple service providers on a common infrastructure


How Does Next Gen PON Benefit Service Providers?

New Markets and Applications

Expands addressable market to larger businesses and MDUs over a common, already deployed infrastructure

Capture Customer Share

Grow market share against advanced service offerings from competitors

Keep Up with Consumer Bandwidth Demands

Service provider can keep up with projected consumer bandwidth growth over the next decade

A Superior Subscriber Experience

Offering the best end user experience is critical to sustainable service provider differentiation
