re: Verizon Shows FiOS Can Deliver Gig-E

PON suppose to be a point to multiple point technology. yes, if you only have one customers attached to the OLT in CO, you can provision and get high speed up to GbE, equivalent to a point-to-point GbE link.. Once you load up with 16 or 32 customers on the ONU side, you loss bandwidth quickly. So Verizon is saying I can use FiOs to deliver 1Gb/s to a single customer with GPON, if only this customer attached to the OLT. what's the fuss? This is equivalent to drop a dedicated line to a customer and offer the customer a GbE link..I guess the point is that this dedicated line can be attached to the same GPON OLT..

re: Verizon Shows FiOS Can Deliver Gig-E

I believe the "fuss" is using GPON to deliver a GIGE business-oriented service, as opposed to the usual FiOS services such as best-effort Internet and consumer video. So it's the particular service delivered, rather than the raw speed.
