Verizon evaluates bids for NG-PON2 upgrade - report

Thursday 24 March 2016 | 09:54 CET | News
Verizon is preparing to upgrade its GPON network to next-generation PON (NG-PON2) for which it released a request for proposals in December 2015, multiple sources have confirmed to Light Reading. Vendors were asked to submit bids for the upgrade that will allow Verizon to deliver a symmetrical 10 Gbps on each of four wavelengths delivered over a single fibre. It is still not known how large the contracts will be or how many vendors would be selected to supply NG-PON2 technology, but one source suggested Verizon could be close to a decision.
