While DOCSIS may still have plenty of fuel left in the tank, PON is rapidly emerging as a critical alternative transmission method for cable as operators increasingly install more fiber lines in their HFC plant. Whether they are leveraging EPON, GPON, 10G EPON, XGS PON or some other version, cablecos are increasingly deploying PON technology to expand their bandwidth capacity. Which PON versions are emerging as most popular and why? How can operators and vendors mix and match PON and DOCSIS in their networks? In this session, speakers will assess PON's technology roadmap, implementation costs and technical, integration and other challenges.
