Expo Theater I
Access networks are continuing to evolve to support more bandwidth and lower-latency applications. Several operators are moving towards a "universal" access network, combining different traffic types onto a single access network. Other operators follow more traditional paths for wireline access network upgrades, such as next-gen TDM-based GPON and EPON. Some cable operators have plans to deploy HFC-based Full Duplex DOCSIS, while others are looking for alternatives to the node + 0 architecture required with Full Duplex. Still other operators are looking at 5G as a competitive solution to fixed/wireline broadband access.
This panel will present and discuss case studies of next-gen access deployments covering telco operators, cable operators and mobile network operators.
