Orange Spain to run symmetric 1 Gbps XG-PON trial at MWC

Thursday 18 February 2016 | 14:48 CET | News
Orange Spain has announced that it will be taking advantage of its appearance at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona from 22-25 February to conduct the first trial on Spanish soil of a symmetric 1 Gbps connection on a commercial FTTH network powered by XG-PON technology. The operator has already started using XG-PON (also known as 10G-PON) technology on its existing FTTH network, but the trial to be held on 23 February will offer 1 Gbps download and upload speeds for the first time on its commercial production network, rather than on an isolated setup.
