    CableLabs Live Webinar: 100G CPON: Use Cases, Technology and Specification Development Image
    Down Arrow Icon

    CableLabs® announced the launch of the Coherent PON (CPON) project in May 2021 toward the goal of next-generation cable’s access architecture. CPON demonstrates significant performance improvement, it can offer 10 times capacity compared to 10G PON and with the increase of 16 times in split ratio or 4 times in transmission distance, from 20km to 80km. The objective of the project is to initially develop specifications for 100G passive optical networks and devices that are multi-vendor interoperable, that coexist with existing infrastructure, and that can cost effectively be deployed at scale.

    CableLabs Mobile Summit - Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) Image
    Down Arrow Icon

    CableLabs invites you to participate in the upcoming Mobile Summit focusing on Fixed Wireless Access (FWA).

    The current global COVID-19 and the rise of 5G have renewed interest in FWA. As a tool, FWA accelerates the deployment of Internet-based broadband access services and support of remote-work and e-learning solutions. FWA has been in use commercially for more than 50 years in various forms, but more recent developments in technology have provided scale and lower cost options for different environments and use cases.  While the FCC is making more spectrum available (sub6GHz and mmWave), options for broadband access continue to increase for both urban and rural deployments

    How can the cable industry successfully fend off the FWA threat and turn it into an opportunity? This question will be answered through CableLabs’ FWA innovation discussions and member insights.

    The ongoing introduction of new high-bandwidth applications such as cloud/edge networking, 8K video streaming services and 5G mobile transport onto the market pushes the optical access systems toward higher data rates. In contrast with other solutions, the passive optical network (PON) is the prevailing broadband optical access solution for the foreseeable future. Single-wavelength 100G PON architecture emerges as a next-generation breakthrough innovation providing the necessary flexibility and capacity to enable all service providers to stay ahead of their convergence, business and residential needs.

    Third Session – Convergence

    CableLabs invites you to participate in the Mobile Summit Third Session focusing on the topic of Convergence. For operators, both those operating mobile networks today and those seeking to build new mobile capability, maintaining and managing separate wireline and wireless access networks with overlapping capabilities is not only inefficient and costly, it limits the type of services they will be able to provide in the future. Convergence seeks to merge these technologies into a singular, multi-modal communication platform that will help reduce network complexity, cut operational costs, improve quality and create new business and service opportunities.
