With the current maturation of 10G broadband enabling technologies, 2017 is promising to be the year multi-gigabit and even 10G Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) or business services become commercially available. Join ADTRAN and USTelecom for a compelling webinar that will explore the current status, compare the performance, and outline the cost challenges of deploying 10G PON technologies -- NG-PON2 and XGS-PON. We will introduce 10G PON enabling access technologies, software-defined access (SD-Access) and 10G optics, discussing how they will help drive the 10G PON cost per subscriber down to levels that rival current Gigabit GPON implementations. We will examine how these innovations support the user-driven service models needed to compete with web-scale operator(s) and what this means for the validity of today’s GPON solutions for network operators and service providers.
