Re: easily
I think the question of FTTH in rural areas is one that the industry is going to struggle with for a while, as you say. We've actually got industry-leading speakers (including Branimir Maric) presenting on this very point at Broadband World Forum, with talks covering the challenges associated with rural deployment of next-gen broadband including:
  • Panel Discussion: Regulating Faster Speeds
  • Forum: Working Towards a Standardized 5G Network
  • 5G FWA: Solving the Problems of the Last Mile

We'd love you to come and learn more this October, So, as a huge thank you for engaging with our interview content, here's 20% off a full-access delegate pass. Simply click HERE and your discount will be applied at checkout.

@JohnDrake. I agree. Only the top companies with the largest budgets will be able to provide FTTH and 5G. Also, FTTH is not as popular as experts predicted. It is taking a long time for FTTH to be adopted. I think because many still do not know what it is and are not sure of the benefits.

I believe it could easily be another 20 years before FTTH is fully developed in many countries. In the US, FTTH is not likely to be delivered soon in many rural areas. About using existing pipes to run fiber, what is ironic is that some local water utilities are replacing old pipes. I wonder if enough of the old pipes could be used to duct fiber, and run new water pipes alongside them, rather than tear the old pipes out of the ground altogether.

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
