Component vendors in the passive and optical space will present on the challenges and innovations. The focus is on the requirements from network operators that are driving the standards developments.
Overview of the NGPON2 passive and optical components
This session covers the key technologies and innovation ongoing in the NGPON2 optical ecosystem.
NG-PON2 Components Update
The biggest challenge for NG-PON2 TWDM optics has been costs that are many times higher than GPON optics. Optical vendors have responded to the challenge of making more cost effective TWDM optics with a wide variety of approaches. The challenges of TWDM optics and cost effective solutions will be examined.
Re-architecting Fibre Connectivity layer at NG COs & DCs
Go!Foton will discuss the solution insights toward the transformation of the Fibre connectivity layer in existing COs in support of denser, faster, and more predictable rollout strategies including NGPON2. This presentation will also address integrating optical components together with connectivity solutions.
Next Generation Chips for Next Generation FTTH Networks
As operators all over the world move to upgrade their FTTH network speeds, there is an increasing demand for chip vendors to deliver high-performance, flexible, low-power, and yet cost-effective solutions to the market. This presentation looks at the new System-on-chip (SoC) offerings from Cortina Access and how these devices are positioned to address the different applications of next generation FTTH networks, including upcoming NG-PON2 deployments
Closing the gap in NG-PON2
Next Generation Passive Optical Networks 2 (NG-PON2) is the current trend for next generation deployment of Passive Optical Networks. NG-PON2 standard offers asymmetric of 10/2.5 Gbps and symmetric 10/10 Gbps solutions for deployment. Aside from the bandwidth upgrade, NG-PON2 comprehends wavelength multiplexing allowing the operators to choose 4-8 wavelengths in the upstream and downstream, being the upstream optics necessarily tunable. Current forecast plan of deployment predicts that NG-PON2 will spark during 2017 in US market with symmetric solution and 4 wavelength plan arising the need for robust cost-effective optoelectronic tunable devices for NG-PON2.
