Each home, school or business has different requirements when it comes to upstream and downstream broadband speeds over fiber—from basic to ultra-fast. To deliver the right speed to the right customer, service providers are deploying both next-generation (XG/XGS-PON, 10G-EPON and NG-PON2) and legacy (GPON/EPON) passive optical local area networks (PONs) by overlaying multiple new wavelengths on existing fibers.
This poses a new challenge for field technicians as each stage of the network lifecycle—deployment, activation and troubleshooting—may require different test tools and techniques.
This webinar examines the latest trends in PON technologies and the best practices in testing and troubleshooting them efficiently.
