Rewriting the FTTx playbook with Open and Disaggregated approach

Wednesday, September 30, 2020, 7:30 PM IST / 3:00 PM London


The demand for a software-defined, converged, last-mile access infrastructure has grown significantly in the last few years. Experts’ point of view is that large scale adoption of software-defined FTTx will pave the way for 5G Fronthaul transformation, Large scale IoT adoption, and will establish the use cases for Edge Cloud deployments. To tackle unforeseen events like the current pandemic it’s highly imperative for service providers to build a network that can scale on demand and are future-proof to a large extent.

In this webinar, STL will focus on how service providers can build a flexible network with open standardized interfaces and disaggregated architecture.

Key topics to be discussed are:

  • Need for broadband access transformation
  • The shift towards open and disaggregated architecture
  • The transformation from traditional FTTx to cloud-native, software-defined FTTxv
  • Possible deployment and integration architectures
