Optica Tech Talk: Technologies and Applications for Passive Optical Networks (PONs)

Wednesday, 09 March 10:00 – 10:30
Optica Booth, Exhibit Hall

This Tech Talk starts with introducing the architectures of passive optical networks (PONs). It compares various types of PONs by their major features,  market deployments, and related standards. After that, the ITU-T 50G-PON Recommendations are reviewed as the latest effort by international standard bodies to advance highspeed access. Lastly, PON new applications, such as Fiber To The Room (FTTR), are discussed in detail. FTTR along with other new applications promotes PON deployment in many promising areas.
