Overview:
 
in partnership with
sponsored by

While DOCSIS may still have plenty of fuel left in the tank, PON is rapidly emerging as a critical alternative transmission method for the cable industry as operators increasingly install more fiber lines in their HFC plant. Whether they are leveraging EPON, GPON, 10G EPON, XGS PON or some other PON flavor, cablecos and vendors are increasingly deploying some version of PON technology to expand their bandwidth capacity. How is the industry using the different PONs? Which PON versions are emerging as most popular and why? How can operators and vendors mix and match PON and DOCSIS in their networks? This webinar will tackle these questions and more.
