The European Commission announced its updated Digital Single Market (DSM) policy with the strategic goal of a Gigabit Society by 2025. Key principles include higher speeds (100 Mbit/s to all), an upgrade path to gigabit and the reuse of existing infrastructure to minimize costs. This is pushing service providers to evaluate their technology investments and place bets on the right technology.

The growing number of operators trialing or rolling out G.fast technology is evidence of its positive business case. In addition, with the standardization of a series of innovations and enhanced capabilities, G.fast has evolved from a near gigabit to a multi-gigabit technology further bolstering its business case.

During this webinar, Stephanie Burris, Product Line Manager for the Access Product Line, Viavi; Ronan Kelly, CTO, EMEA & APAC Region, ADTRAN; and Jack Zhu, Director, Huawei Access Network, outline how G.fast -- with new developments such as 212MHz, DTA and SD-Access -- allows service providers to not only deliver on the gigabit promise but also drive towards an “Uber-like” user-driven, on-demand service experience and a competitive edge.

They will also discuss challenges around G.fast rollouts, including the service and economic impact from copper impairments, and review three typical scenarios of G.fast deployment: FTTC with large capacity G.fast DSLAM; DPU installed in the manhole with remote power feed; and small DPU mounted on a pole or wall with reverse power feed.

Webinar speakers will also share the practical challenges in deploying those solutions in the field and cover topics such as long reach vs. high performance (212MHz, non-linear), G.fast vs. SuperVector (35b), and next-generation G.fast prototype.

5G promises connectivity 10 to 100 times faster than 4G networks, with latencies less than 1msec, making real-time applications such as tactile Internet useable over mobile networks for the first time. However, mobile operators will need to deploy ten times as many radio sites, each with highly reliable plug-and-go multi-gigabit connections, to achieve that level of performance.

In this UBB2020 webinar, Heavy Reading's Gabriel Brown and ADTRAN's Ryan McCowan will:

  1. Discuss 5G densification strategies and their network impact
  2. Outline the different requirements for backhaul and fronthaul needed to support 5G densification strategies
  3. Explore next-generation PON-fixed access technologies and software defined networking principles as emerging solutions to accelerate 5G densification
  4. Outline how NG-PON2, the next-generation multi-gigabit fiber technology, supports the x-haul (fronthaul, backhaul and crosshaul applications) requirements of 5G
