now or never...
I wonder when Gfast will be "obsolete" by..? If Gfast doesn't deploy in the next 5 years, I think it may never get deployed because it'll be surpassed by whatever the technology will be 5 years from now. Gfaster? G.fast.2.0?

Re: Feels like forever
@michelle I would say it - it life in IT this days as nothing simple or easy.. and reality in the trenches not the same as on the project boards in the CEO offices...

Re: Feels like forever
Indeed. Every good plan runs into a multitude of unforseen obstacles. I can't imagine this would be any different.

Re: Feels like forever
@michelle Yes as most of the time it look good on paper, but when reality starts - delays do happens and in real life it not a simple process the way it look in planing...

Feels like forever
No matter how long it takes, it will feel like forever for those who get service at the end of deployments. By then, we may have an entirely new technology for delivering high speed access.

Re: define "deployed"...
I should have been more explicit, so I apologize! When I say deployed I mean beyond field tests and pilots; I should have put 'widely,' although I didn't want to limit responses to that interpretation. Basically, the best way of putting it is what I first said - that Gigabit G.fast is being deployed in real implementations so it's beyond test and pilot stage, although it may not yet be considered 'mainstream.'

Re: define "deployed"...
@mhhf1ve, that is a good question. Hopefully someone can answer it. I would love to know the answer. I think for most companies it means implementation for a certain percentage of consumers. Full deployment is full commercial availability.

G.fast
I think companies spoke too soon. G.fast will not meet the deployment deadlines set because players did not realize the complexity, resources, time and coordination involved in developing G.fast. It is a great concept but requires much more planning, R&D and resources than anticipated.

define "deployed"...
It depends on what "deployed" really means... does it mean "beyond some field trials and into the hands of at least X% of real end-use consumers"? Or does it mean in full commercial availability?

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
