re: Verizon Brings GPON to the Desktop

uhmm, it's unlikely that residential deployments are driving the costs of GPON equipment.  Costs have little to do with where a piece of equipment is deployed and lot to do with efficiencies of production as well as pricing power of the buyer.  Saying "costs are lower because it's built for residential" makes little sense.

Also, GPON in enterprise/MDU seems like the days of over designed and over priced networks (back to the days of  ATM and Token Ring?)  The key to "ethernet" switching is that it's easily field upgradeable.  (Note: Ethernet really isn't a technical term.) I'd be very hesitant to wire in a static (and obsolete) network technology like GPON into any building I owned.
