Passive optical network (PON) is a network architecture that brings fiber cabling and signals to home using point to multipoint scheme that enables single optical fiber to serve multiple premises. This architecture makes use of passive optical splitters that helps in reducing cost of equipments compared to point to point architecture.
Gigabit passive optical network (GPON) standard differs from other PON standards as it offers better bandwidth and higher efficiency using larger, variable length packets. GPON equipment market is expected to witness significant growth in European market as major telecom operators are beginning transition from fiber to the business (FTTB) to GPON based FTTH rollouts. However, Asia Pacific market will witness slower growth rate as major operators already took huge OLT and ONT shipments in past few years for large scale GPON FTTH roll-outs.
Demand from service providers for better quality fiber in network architecture is driving the sales of GPON equipments market and continuous improvements in technology is expected to contribute to this market growth. Fueled by introduction of new fiber to the home (FTTH) projects in US, Russia, and China, the overall GPON revenue, including OLTs and ONTs is expected to rise by the end of the year 2012.
