ITU members approve 40 Gbps NG-PON2 standard

Monday 7 March 2016 | 15:15 CET | News
The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has followed the approval of the G.989 set of standards for 40 Gbps-capable passive optical networks (NG-PON2) by announcing that ITU-T members have given first-stage approval for the updated series. NG-PON2 is a major milestone in the field of access networking as the first series of standards to provide fibre-optic access speeds beyond 10 Gbps, said the ITU in a statement. A number of major operators are testing NG-PON2 systems with the intention of deploying these systems in the near future, added the ITU.
