Re: The wisdom of the crowds at work...
So is SDN deployed in fixed commercial broadband networks now? Sorta... (not widespread) So the answer looks like 2019 or more likely 2020 for a majority of carriers to get SDN out of testing labs.

This is why it's so important to have a stash of gold under your pillow and insurance people. You never know when something in your life might happen and we'll be forced back into the dark ages. Then again, everyone thought that Y2K would wipe out all technology and here we are moving forward into 5G and all sorts of other technology right now. Everything in life is unpredictable - that's what life is isn't it?

Re: The wisdom of the crowds at work...
Brexit alone was kinda crazy. I always knew anyone in the EU could choose to leave, but I didn't think I would see it in my lifetime.

A prediction market for this question might get more accurate results... but then again, prediction markets don't always work (and failed to anticipate Brexit or Trump).

Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.

Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Node + 0 (Fiber Deep)
  • DOCSIS 3.1, DOCSIS 4.0 (FDX/ESD)
  • FTTP and 10G PON
  • XGS-PON, NG-PON2
  • Provisioning 10G PON within a DOCSIS B/OSS environment
