Time to deploy.

Progress has been rapid since the ratification of the standard. Products are on the market, extensive field testing has taken place and early deployments have begun.

Great-Britain, Taiwan, Australia
and Brazil are already planning 35M homes. 100M homes is almost certain. 200M definitely in sight. If South Asia goes forward on landlines, 300M-400M homes remains possible.

Today, operators explore the business case for extending distance and integration to the FTTCabinet. Their target is to exploit existing copper infrastructure to overlay the desired ultra broadband services, but in the most scalable and manageable way possible. Rigid service activation, and time consuming homologation processes are vital to making those business cases stack up for the short and long term. shows there’s never been a better time to ‘unlock’ the closed nature of FTTx architectures.

But while the first generation systems become more and more mature and move towards deployments, it is time to think of the next steps in development.
The Summit has followed this technology since its begining and will provide, through its third edition an overview of the market, in terms of deployments, experimentations, standardization process and equipment providers offering.

As is the case every year, the most renowned experts will discuss and debate the hottest topics during the Summit, to be held in Paris CDG, from 18 to 20 May, 2016.

The agenda: early deployments and operational challenges

After a first tutorial day dedicated to current works at the BroadBand Forum and the ITU-T, the conference will start with a large opening led by BT, the European service providers most advanced in terms of deployment.
Following sessions will address the most crucial operational challenges, last test labs reports and next steps.

Telebyte Live Demonstration

Telebyte, the leader in testing, will present a live demonstration of using a Calix 16-port DPU and 4 Calix CPE’s in a laboratory test environment. Using their Cable Farm Automation Switch, Noise Generator and Analyzer, Telebyte will show modem data rates at various loop lengths in the presence of real world noise (impulse noise, RFI, crosstalk and more). In addition they will perform tests from the Broadband Forum's ID-337 Certification test plan such as PSD Mask tests, TDD Timing measurements, Functional Tests, Stability tests, and Performance tests.
