The European Commission announced its updated Digital Single Market (DSM) policy with the strategic goal of a Gigabit Society by 2025. Key principles include higher speeds (100 Mbit/s to all), an upgrade path to gigabit and the reuse of existing infrastructure to minimize costs. This is pushing service providers to evaluate their technology investments and place bets on the right technology.

The growing number of operators trialing or rolling out G.fast technology is evidence of its positive business case. In addition, with the standardization of a series of innovations and enhanced capabilities, G.fast has evolved from a near gigabit to a multi-gigabit technology further bolstering its business case.

During this webinar, Stephanie Burris, Product Line Manager for the Access Product Line, Viavi; Ronan Kelly, CTO, EMEA & APAC Region, ADTRAN; and Jack Zhu, Director, Huawei Access Network, outline how G.fast -- with new developments such as 212MHz, DTA and SD-Access -- allows service providers to not only deliver on the gigabit promise but also drive towards an “Uber-like” user-driven, on-demand service experience and a competitive edge.

They will also discuss challenges around G.fast rollouts, including the service and economic impact from copper impairments, and review three typical scenarios of G.fast deployment: FTTC with large capacity G.fast DSLAM; DPU installed in the manhole with remote power feed; and small DPU mounted on a pole or wall with reverse power feed.

Webinar speakers will also share the practical challenges in deploying those solutions in the field and cover topics such as long reach vs. high performance (212MHz, non-linear), G.fast vs. SuperVector (35b), and next-generation G.fast prototype.

Just when you thought the answer to your next technology direction question was clear, the noise around multiple new technology options fills the Internet and airwaves. Multiple 5Gs are being deployed; there's CableLabs' 10G initiative; the ITU and IEEE are toiling around 50G PON – and we haven’t even talked about Wi-Fi6 yet! Is any of this real, do you have to pay attention or can you just let the dust settle and then decide?

Since waiting is often not the best option, let’s demystify technology options, their impact on your business, and how to prepare for whatever the future brings.

In this webinar, Service Providers will learn:

  • Current state of 5G and how it affects everyone, not only mobile network providers.
  • Latest technologies being developed and how they will benefit their networks and subscribers.
  • How to prepare their networks for the future – whatever it may hold.
