Broadband forum calls for standards

By

5G standards have been introduced, but not fully implemented. Each vendor knows its take on the subject, but the real value is in listening to what the attendees actually say.

The Broadband World Forum Gigaband Industry Summit was held this week in Amsterdan, the Netherlands. European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Wi-Fi Alliance, analyst firm Ovum, and multiple mainstream operators around the world discussed how to leverage the fifth-generation fixed network to promote the global gigabit ecosystem.

In the keynote at the summit, David Boswarthick, Director New Technologies of  European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI, said: "Looking back on the development history of fixed networks, we have experienced the 64 kbps narrowband era represented by PSTN/ISDN, 2 Mbps era represented by ADSL, the 20 Mbps era of VDSL, and 100 Mbps era represented by GPON/EPON.

 “Now we are entering the fifth-generation Gigabit era (1–5 Gbps) represented by 10G PON,” said Boswarthick. “With effective collaboration with  advanced wireless technologies such as 5G, Gigabit fibre networks are providing a flexible and high-performance connectivity network for the Telecom Industry,

Meimei Dang, Vice Chief Engineer in the ITSR (Institute of Technology and Standards Research), CAICT, said: “As cloud VR, smart home, gaming, social networking, cloud desktop, safe city, enterprise cloud private line, online education, telemedicine, and smart manufacturing become more popular, the full-fibre gigabit network will directly generate trillions of revenues for related industries, and Gigabit broadband has become the focus of global broadband development."

Julie Kunstler, Principal Analyst of Ovum said: “More than two hundred operators in the world have released gigabit services, and twenty operators have released 10G services. 10G PON has become a basic technology for gigabit networks. In the next five years, it is estimated that the compound growth rate of 10G PON OLT ports in the central office will reach 41%, and that of 10G PON ONTs will reach 124%.”
