Deployable Devices and Techno-Economics for Gigabit Access

Thursday, March 24, 2016
3:30 PM - 5:30 PM

Event type: Panel

Room number: Ballroom E


Ed Harstead, Alcatel-Lucent, USA


This panel addresses deployable technologies and the techno-economics of Gigabit access networks, looking at architectures ranging from residential to business applications as well as mobile backhaul and C-RAN fronthaul.

As more operators start to offer Gigabit services, larger deployment volumes are shifting cost/performance numbers significantly.  Techno-economic analyses comparing the ITU-T/FSAN GPON family of standards (incl. XG-PON1, NG-PON2 and XGS-PON), IEEE EPON group of standards (incl. 10G-EPON and NG-EPON) and emerging solutions for TWDM-PON enable operators to select the solutions best suited for their needs.  Copper-based technologies (DOCSIS 3.1, to bridge the remaining distance from fiber to customer will continue to play an important role.

The panel also addresses electro-optical components such as lasers, modulators, filters and receivers suited for Gigabit speeds and beyond.
