AT&T is field testing 10 gigabit per second symmetrical passive optical network technology. We call this XGS-PON, and this new technology can deliver up to 10Gbps on the downlink of a broadband connection. As customers are requiring faster internet speeds because of bandwidth-heavy applications like virtual and augmented reality, XGS-PON helps networks handle the bandwidth from these cutting-edge technologies.
AT&T’s goal is to support the merging of all services on a single network, including 5G wireless infrastructure. AT&T’s vision is to put XGS-PON in the cloud using software. Open hardware and software designs speed innovation. This innovative application can save time needed to manage, deliver, monitor, troubleshoot, and provide care services to customers
