ADTRAN announced an industry breakthrough in the economics of delivering Fiber-to-the-Premise (FTTP) services based on NG-PON2 architecture. NG-PON2 is a next generation FTTH or FTTP access standard. This next generation architecture that will enable service providers greater scale for their FTTH networks in order to better support Gigabit service as it grows from 1G to 10G.
A few highlights:
- What does this mean to the market? (watch this ADTRAN video to learn about use cases)
- ADTRAN is expanding NG-PON2’s applicability for Gigabit broadband beyond the smaller business and backhaul market to the wider marketplace by removing concerns of future bandwidth exhaustion or quality of service issues.
- This is the first time both residential FTTH customers and early business adopters of this premium technology can be immediately supported on a single, common access architecture.
- The new architecture has the potential to advance the adoption of 10G FTTP for residential markets by three to five years, while increasing capacity to double the life of the network.
- How is ADTRAN doing it? (watch this video to explore more)
- ADTRAN is streamlining the high cost areas of 10G PON design with flexible optics architecture with multiple “cost vs. capability” options, including fixed wavelength 10G optics.
Additionally, ADTRAN’s published a blog on the topic, providing more insight into how to effectively prepare your network for more than a Gigabit.
