Asia Communications and Photonics Conference (ACP) & International Conference on Information Photonics and Optical Communications (IPOC)

Industry Forum Session 2:Enabling Technology and Application for Passive Optical Networks in F5G and Beyond

The ambition of F5G for passive optical networks is to open new opportunities by comprehensively applying fiber technology to various scenarios, in a sense making the paradigm of Fiber to the Home for traditional residential users become a Fiber to Everything for diverse vertical industries. With the trend above, enabling technologies and potential applications for future PON will be discussed in this workshop, some interesting topics are shown as bellow:


F5G Advanced and beyond

Low energy consumption PON technology

MAC and DBA design for future PON

Machine Learning in PON systems

Deterministic and TSN technology for PON

Enabling technologies of fiber to the room (FTTR)

Integration of fixed and mobile networks

Challenges for coherent PON systems beyond 100Gbps

Key technologies and standards of 50G-PON

Flexible rate PON systems
