Ethernet Passive Optical Networks – The FTTx Success Story

On 20 April 2012, the IEEE SA Corporate Advisory Group (CAG) sponsored the IEEE P1904.1™ SIEPON Seminar entitled Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (EPON) – The FTTx Success Story. The FREE full-day seminar was held at the Boscolo Prague Hotel in the Czech Republic.

Speakers included network operators who have deployed tens of millions of lines of EPON as well as members of the IEEE P1904.1™ Working Group, Standard for Service Interoperability in Ethernet Passive Optical Networks (SIEPON).

IEEE EPON is the market-leading, fiber-access technology, with worldwide deployments supporting more than 60 million subscribers today, and an anticipated subscriber base of more than 100 million by the end of 2013.

EPON deployments support a diverse suite of business and residential services, including IPTV, VoIP, commercial-grade data services, and cellular backhaul.

The talks were organized in four panels and addressed the following topics:

  • How does EPON address the exploding demand for more bandwidth?
  • What makes EPON economical, reliable, scalable, and evolvable?
  • How do multiple generations of EPON coexist on the same network?
  • How does the IEEE P1904.1 SIEPON standard fosters the global EPON ecosystem?
