Good Reading | Fiberevolution: Revisiting the PON vs P2P debate

Benoit at Fiberevolution has a good post on FTTH issues Fiberevolution: Revisiting the PON vs P2P debate. I particularly like his conclusion 👿

The final conclusion I recently came to on this issue – and you might say I could have figured it out earlier – is that you should not trust vendor discourse on this issue. Unfortunately, they speak with the loudest voices. …

Here are the points covered.

  • Don’t confuse technology and topology
  • Homerun vs Passive star
  • Cost differentials should be looked at at the active layer
  • OPEX savings
  • PON and unbundling
