An Open Disaggregated Solution for PON FTTH
11-13, 14:30–17:30 (Europe/Berlin), Workshop 3
Language: English

EPS Global along with Edgecore Networks, IP Infusion, Radisys, and RtBrick, will present an open solution for a fiber-to-the-home deployment (FTTH). The focus of the workshop will be on an open, disaggregated, XGS-PON network from the central office to the subscriber's home. Comprising of the ONT to OLT, aggregation of OLTs, vBNG, routing, and transport to the core.

Disaggregation has become a key driver for Tier 1 providers like Deutsche Telekom, AT&T, Orange, Telefonica, and more. With the help of the Telecom Infra Project (TIP), and the Open Networking Foundation (ONF), the benefits of building open and disaggregated networks are now realizable for all providers, regardless of scale.

What should participants bring to your workshop?

We will provide notepads and pens so participants can bring their laptops if they like.
