Rural Fiber / GPON is complex and expensive.
- GPON cost model optimized for higher density markets.
- There exist new solutions to reduce the skills and the time needed to deploy fiber along rural roads, but significant challenges remain to cover the "last few hundred feet from the road" to "inside the home".
- Resistance to disruption of landscaping, terrain integrity, … still high.
- Cost and time required (including additional truck roll) to bring fiber inside the home is high with many unknowns.
G.hn allows re-use of existing copper pairs from the nearby serving terminal to the home.
- G.hn uses a passive GAM powered from the home (RPF) to extend Gigabit services to 800 feet.
Installs in less time than fiber and without disruption.
By attending this webinar, you will learn how G.hn complements fiber and fixed wireless radio in the access network to deliver gigabit services without the need to extend fiber all the way to the home or install FWA antennas and receivers on each home. While G.hn is becoming widely used in MDUs and MTUs, its flexibility and low cost make it the ideal complement in rural and lower density markets. Reusing the existing telephone pairs or coaxial cabling in place, it distributes Gigabit links to 1 or more subscribers for less than the cost of the usual truck roll for a service technician. G.hn is auto configured and supports user self-installation for quick rollout and eliminates the need to enter the premises.
