BT, Verizon and China Telecom among the first to react as Broadband Forum announces first successful product certifications
Leading telecoms operators from all parts of the world have been quick to express their support for yesterday’s announcement that the first G-PON ONU (Optical Network Units) products had completed the testing required to achieve the Broadband Forum’s new certification program.
Products from seven vendors from the US, Europe and Asia have had products approved against the world’s first G-PON certification and test program announced by the Broadband Forum last month. The move has been welcomed by global service providers as a major milestone in increasing the deployment of high speed fiber broadband. “The Broadband Forum G-PON Certification program will provide assurance that technologies meet industry specifications through an independent testing service,” said Verizon’s Chris Mayer, Vice President, Corporate Technology, Systems Integration and Testing. “Consistency in offerings and equipment lessen the impact of non-standard equipment causing unnecessary downtime.”
