Optimizing the fiber business case
G-PON interoperability and certification strategies for operators and vendors
Produced in association with The Broadband Forum

Fiber-to-the premises (FTTP) is already the world’s fastest-growing fixed-broadband segment and gigabit passive optical network (G-PON) technology is set to become its dominant architecture.

But problems with getting G-PON equipment from different vendors to interoperate has been holding back service providers’ ability to innovate, speed up deployments and lower costs.

To gain a deeper understanding of the challenges, Informa Telecoms & Media surveyed 237 broadband industry stakeholders and interviewed senior executives at Orange, BT, Chunghwa Telecom, PCCW, Huawei, Alcatel-Lucent, Calix and PT Innovacao.
