Reinforce research, technological development and innovation
Synthesis: FutPON project will create a comprehensive network solution, PtP WDM-PON (evolution of GPON technology), 10GEPON / NGEPON (evolution of EPON technology) and GFast (evolution of ADSL technology), that still allow co-existence with legacy technologies (GPON, XGPON, EPON, ADSL). Next generation PONs or PON’s future, lies on these innovative technologies, which are designated as FutPON technologies.
Technological developments for next generation PONs, requires the development of advanced and innovative OLT and ONT platforms equipped with features and components of great complexity in terms of optoelectronics, electronics and management. An exponential increase in bandwidth, the improvement in services dedicated to mobile communications, the interoperability between different technologies, and through the development of integrated optical circuit and the cost reduction and other essential features such as space or power consumption are the most important changes in the new technologies. The integration of these developments, position these technologies, in addition to the residential component in the business segments, mobile backhaul and connectivity cloud.
