Within the fixed access market, all-fiber networks are generally recognized as the ultimate, endgame technology for delivering ultra-broadband wireline services. Commonly referred to as fiber-to-the-home or fiber-to-the-premise (FTTH or FTTP), the fiber access universe is actually composed of a fairly well-differentiated variety of technologies.

For the sake of simplicity, the current generation of fiber access technologies deployed globally consists of three distinct technologies: active, or point-to-point, Ethernet FTTH; and two types of passive optical networking (PON), point-to-multipoint solutions, namely Gigabit PON (GPON) and Ethernet PON (EPON).

While GPON is the most popular form of fiber access in North America, and it has significant traction in the European market, EPON is the most widely deployed fiber access technology worldwide, thanks primarily to early traction in Japan and, more recently, in the burgeoning fixed broadband market in China. Given EPON’s position as the leading fiber access technology on the planet, it deserves a closer look.

In this webinar, Erik Keith, Principal Analyst for Fixed Access Infrastructure at Current Analysis, looks at the importance and impact of EPON as a leading technology within the global fixed/fiber access marketplace. The webinar examines key questions to help make sense of today’s market and understand where it is heading in both the near and long term. It answers questions such as:

Some of the topics that will be discussed in this Current Analysis Webinar include:

  • What does the current global fiber access marketplace look like, how will it evolve, and what role will EPON play moving forward?
  • How does EPON compare to the other fiber access technologies? Does EPON offer any service delivery advantages or efficiencies when compared to Ethernet FTTH or GPON?
  • Given the popularity of GPON in North America and Europe, is there an avenue for EPON to gain traction in these important geographic markets?
  • Who are the main contenders in the global EPON market, and how do their solution sets compare?
