VIAVI Solutions has a range of PON Tools for use in qualifying, activating, and troubleshooting E-PON, G-PON, and next-generation, high-speed 10 G PONs such as XG-PON and 10G-EPON networks.
Building reliable PON requires thorough test to assure networks are built as per their design and to prove end build quality in order to meet the tight optical budgets required for successful operation.
The rollout of 5G continues, and PON networks have found a new application with 5G fronthaul. The fronthaul is the connection between the baseband controller and the remote radio head at the cell site.
Due to the bandwidth and latency demands imposed by 5G, utilizing PON networks to complete the fronthaul connections can reduce fiber count and improve efficiency without compromising performance. In much the same way the source signal is split between users for FTTH, signal from the baseband units can be distributed to an array of remote radio heads.
