BBWF 2010: Huawei's 10G GPON Coup
The Chinese vendor says it worked with the Portuguese incumbent to transmit 3DTV content using the 10G GPON capabilities in its MA 5600T access platform.
There is a difference between the two trials, though. Huawei's platform enables asymmetrical capacity -- 10 Gbit/s downstream and 2.5 Gbit/s upstream -- while AlcaLu's is a symmetrical 10 Gbit/s platform.
The potential of next-generation PON systems has been one of the hot topics in Paris this week. (See BBWF 2010: Euro Vendor Joins WDM-PON Fray, BBWF 2010: Next-Gen FTTX, No Sure Bets in NG PONs, and BBWF 2010: Top 10 Topics.)
