ITU G-PON Pavilion

Telcordia is pleased to again be coordinating a G-PON Pavilion on behalf of the ITU. This effort is being organized under ITU-T Study Group 15, Question 2 (Dave Faulkner, Rapporteur).

The next ITU G-PON Pavilion is being planned for NXTcomm 2008, June 16- 19, 2008 in Las Vegas, NV, USA. Plans are underway to finalize the ITU G-PON Pavilion participants in February, at which time detailed conference call planning meetings will begin. See the ITU G-PON Pavilion 2008 Overview for more information. Also see the 1-page Fact Sheet that summarizes the Pavilion and provides important value statements for participants.

About the ITU G-PON Pavilion

The ITU G-PON Pavilion is a multi-company stand sponsored by the ITU for the purposes of promoting G.984-related technology and the Optical Access standardization activities of the ITU. The center-piece of the G-PON Pavilion is a public G-PON interoperability demonstration of equipment from different telecommunications equipment and device manufacturers. For this year's Pavilion, we hope to demonstrate G-PON Reach Extender ( operation, G-PON Enhancement Band (G.984.5) operation, and G-PON-fed DSL applications, in addition to traditional triple-play FTTP.

Participating in the ITU G-PON Pavilion offers the following potential benefits:

  • Allows vendors to showcase their G-PON solutions, including demonstrating interoperability with other vendor solutions
  • Help demonstrate G-PON as a key enabling technology for full service, broadband multimedia, delivery networks
  • Illustrate the maturity of the G.984 standard, the technology and commercial products through multi-vendor interoperability demonstrations
  • Help develop the world market for G-PON products
  • Help promote the ITU-T access network standards

G-PON systems are expected to be a key catalyst in the deployment of fully converged (i.e., voice, video, and data), end-to-end, IP service delivery systems by network operators around the world. With 2488 Mbps downstream and 1244 Mbps digital capacities, G-PON access systems are strongly positioned to support the delivery of IP multicast (e.g., broadcast TV) and unicast (e.g., VOD) high definition video services to residential and small/medium businesses over a fully converged IP infrastructure. Interoperable equipment is critical to enabling cost reductions through volume production and increased marketplace competition, thereby helping to increase the availability of fully converged IP services.
