As I have been posting during the last weeks, there are a lot of movements in the ultra broadband access market. Almost all the network operators are investing to upgrade their infrastructures to offer high speed services. Following some comments from my previous post, this article presents migration strategies to deploy FTTH. Mainly, I see three […]Read more "Evolution or revolution when migrating to FTTH?"
Spain is at present gaining momentum in FTTH deployments. Further to the announcements of the national operators which have been released lately, local operators are also upgrading their infrastructures towards FTTH. I am at present developing several FTTH projects with small operators and they are also very active, in order to have a interesting offer […]Read more "Local operators are also deploying FTTH"
My latests posts have been related to corporate strategies regarding the deployment of FTTH in Spain. The reason for this has been that most of the big operators have announced their deployment strategies for the next years, all of which include FTTH plans in their roadmap, except ONO, which continues their upgrade of their CATV […]Read more "More movements in the Spanish FTTH market"
Telefonica this year is the one that is leading the broadband market in Spain, both technically and commercially. I am not talking about Telefónica because I have any interest but because of the fact that they are the ones that are pushing the market more intensively. This week, starting 1st September, they released a new […]Read more "Telefónica Fusión service"
Telefónica is taking very seriously the massive deployment of FTTH. They started in 2007 with some pilots and in 2010 they massively deploy FTTH in Barcelona and Madrid. This year they finished covering Barcelona and they are almost done in Madrid as well. Their next step is to push hard and invest 1.200M EUR in […]Read more "Telefónica investment plans 2012-2015"
After last week writing about the upgrade paths for PON networks, this week’s post will be a technical one about WDM PON technologies. WDM PONs are a good way to upgrade existing PON topologies, by adding more optical channels to the access segment, thus increasing overall bandwidth capabilities. The main principle of WDM PON is […]Read more "WDM PON principles"
One of the points of the ones who promote P2P connections is the limited bandwidth that present PON technologies offer. Although I always say against this point that once you deploy a PON the bottleneck is rarely on the PON but on the aggregation link, I must admit that the potential of P2P in terms […]Read more "Towards 10GPON and WDM-PON"
