The successful demonstration of "the disaggregation of time-critical PON functions" means that "operators looking to quickly and cost-effectively deliver new 5G services are today a step closer to being able to do so", according to the Broadband Forum and NTT.
Fibre and cable networks are "dominating the global broadband market, with the technologies now servicing 77% of fixed subscriptions", according to new figures.
5G: What's fixed got to do with it? That's the name of the Broadband Forum's 24 May and 11 June webinars which explores the latest developments in ongoing work to the 5G revolution.
Broadband Forum's latest "BASE" event brought together a vast array of speakers, covering an unparalleled range of topics, from NG-PON2 and Gfast to virtualisation and converged networks for 5G, with more than 300 delegates "from the entire value chain".
It's not just Ericsson and Nokia pushing 5G forward, but Huawei too, with its executive director and president of Carrier Business, Ryan Ding, calling for incubating 4.5G services on the road to 5G.
Operators, vendors and analysts are set to discuss the latest developments in Gfast and NG-PON2 technologies at the end of this month.
The systems vendor list for certified-interoperable G.fast solutions has risen from 7 to 24, a three-fold jump, suggesting a solid future for the technology.
The global non-profit Broadband Forum says the first six products have successfully completed the Gfast certification programme from the Forum and the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL).
Proponents of the G.hn home networking standard have hailed the success of the latest multi-vendor interoperability event as evidence that the technology is now on the cusp of commercial availability.
