Ryan McCowan, fiber access product manager for ADTRAN, recently participated in an UBB2020 webinar on mobilizing SD-Access with 10G PON. Having some prior knowledge of the subject at hand, I still find different points of view to be very informational as I continue to track these emerging technologies. Items I found particularly interesting were:

  • By applying modern data center principles to an access network, agility is created to support user-driven service delivery
  • Low latency is a key tenant for delivery PON services in support of the emerging 5G standard
  • Network elasticity provides the ability to right size a network instantly, but also provides flexibility like Fixed Access Network Sharing
  • NG-PON2 is an ideal physical layer technology for taking full advantage of an SD-Access architecture

The webinar is archived on the UBB2020 site for on demand listening, I encourage you to check it out!
