Can New PON Architectures Help Networks Close the Digital Gap?

For years, rolling out advanced broadband services in rural markets has been challenging due to the unique dynamics of these environments. Service providers have found it difficult to justify the financial investments it takes to construct next-gen networks in areas where subscriber density is low and revenue opportunity can be less than it is in urban and suburban markets. Newly available funding programs are helping to level the playing field—enabling a substantial opportunity for service providers of all sizes to build next-generation high-speed broadband networks in rural markets around the world.

Using a disaggregated architecture that leverages the benefits of R-OLTs, software-defined networking and automation is just one emerging solution that can help operators balance their various challenges. These new architectures will reduce capital and operational costs, accelerate the time to market for new services, and pave the way for new “pay-for-use” models.

Read this white paper to find out about:

  • Increasing reliance on the passive optical network (PON) technology
  • Benefits of a disaggregated PON architecture enabling reducing physical facilities’ costs and deployment time
  • A modelled installation and operating costs for a low-density (rural PON deployment)
