Part 2: Next-generation passive optical networks
The Full Service Access Network (FSAN) has outlined its vision for fibre access networks for the coming decade.
FSAN is an industry forum that includes over 20 operators and 70 members overall. The group identifies service requirements and develops optical access technologies that are passed to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) for standardisation.
“One of the messages of the roadmap is that, in the immediate future, what FSAN wants to do is evolve the existing standards,” says Peter Dawes, FSAN NGPON co-chair.
