Re: shutdown effects?
@afwriter. I agree. With the government shutdown some companies will probably revisit their top initiatives and look for ways to reduce spending. Companies will also scrutinize ROI so NG-PON2 may be delayed.

NG PON2
This country is so fickle you never know what may happen. I believe it will take at least another 12 months for NG-PON2. Some companies are working on it but I think most are focused on 5G.

Re: shutdown effects?
You wouldn't think that it would affect it in any significant way, but then again you never know when it comes to bureaucracy.

Trade war effects?
I'd also think that there may be some China trade war delays... As the costs of deploying networking hardware might be going up? I don't think anyone is accelerating their investments during the uncertainty of increased tariffs on various goods.....

shutdown effects?
I wonder if the federal shutdown had any effect on infrastructure deployments like these? I would assume at least some slowdown in the process to even try to get regulatory approvals for building out infrastructure occurred. But maybe it didn't affect HG-PON2 at all?

Predictive betting markets...
I haven't seen any prediction markets on this topic.. but maybe I'll look a bit more closely into it. There must be some stock traders who will be interested in this poll...!

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
