If you missed this very interesting webinar, on “How to stretch the limits of PON networks by deploying novel splitting structures”, you can watch it below.
It is an important goal for many to create an increasingly interconnected world. High-speed internet has allowed us to stay connected, to work from home, and much more. Now that PON networks are going up in speed and/or reaching more of us, e.g. also in rural areas, there are situations where carriers can be short on fiber or run into power budget issues. For these situations, deploying novel splitting structures, such as asymmetric splitters, can offer great benefits. In the webinar, it will be detailed how these components can help and a number of interesting use cases will be discussed.
