Co-existence is key to a cost-effective next-gen PON migration, says Iskratel

Valencia, Spain, 13 February 2018 – Operators looking to unleash the full potential of next-generation PON technologies such as XGS-PON and NG-PON2 should wisely consider a period of co-existence between PON generations to ensure a gradual migration with minimum service disruption, Iskratel’s CTO said today. Speaking on the opening day of FTTH Conference, Damjan Slapar highlighted how operators could miss out on introducing revenue-generating applications if they don’t upgrade their networks and take advantage of next-generation PON capabilities, including increased symmetrical bandwidth and flexible wavelength plans. But, he warned, operators…

XGS-PON interoperability advances after second Plugfest

LAN-hosted event in Tauxigny, France, brought together 13 companies Tauxigny, France, November 13, 2017: Leading industry names from across the globe came together to accelerate the development of PON technology at the second XGS-PON Interoperability Plugfest. XGS-PON is based on the ITU-T’s latest Recommendation (ITU-T G.9807.1), providing a symmetrical 10Gbit/s capability over a fiber infrastructure that can co-exist with legacy 2.5Gbit/s G-PON. Organized by Laboratoire des Applications Numériques (LAN), in collaboration with the Full Service Access Network (FSAN) Group and the Broadband Forum, this year’s Plugfest focused on interoperability between…
