Why do I need NG-PON2 when my GPON still has plenty of bandwidth left?

NG-PON2 is more than just another PON technology. It enables:
  • Separation of services over wavelengths while still maintaining a single optical distribution network (ODN)
  • Seamless movement of services or reduction in split ratios without service interruption
  • Future proofing the network with the ability to bond channels to gain more bandwidth as needed

Seamlessly upgrade OLTs and reduce split ratios without service interruption, using NG-PON2’s Wavelength mobility.

Learn how NG-PON2 channel bonding and AXOS can future-proof your network.

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

What ONT’s are available for NG-PON2 and XGS-PON?

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

  • Subscribers are streaming more content in 4K and adding more devices rapidly adding more devices causing an increasing need for bandwidth    
  • 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
