Over recent years, Internet access speeds have increased greatly to keep pace with the demand of new services and bandwidth-hungry applications, such as streaming video, online gaming and video on demand. New technologies have been adopted that can support the current need for bandwidth, but they have not always taken into account the longer-term growth expected for access networks. FTTH deployments have high economic costs attached to them due to the cost of laying fibre. The emergence of GPON technologies has allowed operators to seriously decrease these deployment costs and to reach more users with the same fibre connection.
Connect44’s fixed network engineering team have been instrumental in delivering these types of solutions to its clients that decrease cost and build future proof networks for tomorrow.
