Innovating to Unleash the Value of Fixed Networks in the 5G Era

Last year saw an explosive growth of Fixed Broadband (FBB) and Mobile Broadband (MBB) networks as well as the volume deployment of gigabit access. The compound annual growth rate of the 10G PON market will exceed 30 percent in the next five years and more than 70 countries worldwide have started or are planning 5G rollouts. Judging from the broadband initiatives of different countries, the business strategies of operators, and the competitive landscape, an era of dual-gigabit speeds based on FBB and MBB has arrived and the two access technologies will coexist for a long time. FBB and MBB will work together to further accelerate technical innovation and network transformation.

Build optical cross-connect (OXC) transport networks with the lowest per-bit cost

The acceleration of 5G application, rapid development of video services, increasing demands for quality, and longer video viewing times lead to sharp traffic increases. Ovum predicts that global mobile broadband (MBB) and fixed broadband (FBB) traffic will reach approximately 3,000,000 PB in 2023, roughly triple 2019’s traffic. This brings great changes and challenges to transport networks.
