Kevin has been with EXFO for 18 years and has been involved in the telecom industry for 29 years. Starting in excavation as a laborer, Kevin traded in his shovel for a backhoe laying cable across the US. He later worked for a Tier 1 service provider as a splicer and tester, working on new installs and disaster recovery. Kevin became an Operations technician, turning up and maintaining DS1 to 10G systems. Leveraging this field experience, Kevin delivers a unique perspective which shows in his educational approach when delivering expert content through webinars or seminars. 

You know it: ever-evolving subscriber needs are driving the bandwidth boom to newer heights, pressing networks to keep pace. It's no secret that a big part of achieving this growth is through the transition of passive optical networks (PONs) from GPON/EPON to XGS-PON and 10G-PON.

This webinar will help you grasp the basics of FTTx technologies; how xPON functions and the principal architecture around it. Our expert will tackle some of the challenges experienced in the field and explain how to avoid or overcome them in ensuring a smooth transition.

Key takeaways:

  • Optical fiber qualification and troubleshooting
  • Basics of FTTx technologies
  • Principles of PON
  • Types of network architecture
  • General characteristics of xPON
  • Differences between GPON, EPON, XG-PON, XGS-PON and XGS-PON2
