Telcos’ tipping point: 10G fiber and software-defined access

This white paper uncovers the motivations behind the industry’s transition to software-driven 10Gbit/s XGS-PON networks. We discover that it’s not only about speed but also the implications of a holistic overhaul where reliability, stability and agility in service delivery are all paramount. As data demand increases, operators want to leverage software-defined access (SD-Access) solutions to migrate to a more elastic infrastructure that enables services to be activated without a forklift upgrade. With the ability to decouple control and management layers from network elements, operators gain unprecedented leverage, setting the stage for automation in service and application provisioning.

The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the shift to remote working on a global scale. In response, operators viewed 10Gbit/s PON not just as a response to future challenges but also as a proactive measure, setting a capacity baseline that caters to diverse user requirements such as speed, ultra-low latency and heightened security. The horizon is set to broaden further with SD-Access enabling a move towards intent-based networking. Leveraging AI and machine learning, operators will soon be empowered to define, market, and more adeptly deliver services. 

Read our white paper to discover how 10Gbit/s XGS-PON and SD-Access give operators the control, flexibility and foresight to see them through a decade of booming data demand and evolving customer needs. Explore how open white box solutions and AI-driven management and orchestration reduce operational costs, increase network efficiencies, and provide operators with the tools to tap into new markets. Learn how the transition grants operators the latitude to experiment and refine services in real time. And join us to discover how 10Gbit/s XGS-PON amplifies competitiveness and bolsters long-term sustainability.
