The second edition of the G.fast Summit, will be held in Paris CDG, from 19th to 21st May, 2015.
FTTdp: From Theory to Implementation
Last year, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T) took the first step towards standardising G.fast, the next major DSL-based standard which vendors hope will provide a “fibre-like” experience. Next steps consist in testing and early deployments.
The 2015 edition of the G.fast Summit will mainly cover reports from the first testbeds, interop sessions and field trials.
As it was the case last year, the most renowned experts will be highlighting G.fast next steps based on what has been developed and published in 2014.
The programme will cover standardization progress through in depth presentations from the ITU and the Broadband Forum representatives.
Other sessions will be covering topics such as self-installation issues, deploying with legacy DSL, vectoring, FttDP architectures.
Debates and panels will also be organized around the following themes:
- G.fast for mobile backhauling: when and how?
- Solving the mid-range challenge
- Non linear coding
