REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – February 1, 2018 – According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the telecommunications, networks, and data center IT industries, demand for next generation PON technologies will grow the PON market at six percent compound annual growth rate over the next five years. Of the next generation PON technologies, XGS-PON is forecast to be the clear winner.

“As the two primary next generation PON technologies – XGS-PON and NG-PON2 – work their way into operator networks, we feel XGS-PON will be the obvious favorite,” said Alam Tamboli, Senior Analyst at Dell’Oro Group. “We feel this will be true for a number of reasons, including: XGS-PON has high capacity for numerous applications, from backhauling technologies to business services; the technology can share optics with 10 Gbps EPON, cutting down prices and making it a viable alternative to GPON; and XGS-PON can co-exist with GPON and NG-PON2, which will allow operators with GPON networks to deploy XGS-PON relatively cheaply without significant interruption to their networks, and still have a set upgrade path to NG-PON2 – if and when they decide to go that route,” continued Tamboli.
