Japanese companies demo 40Gbps passive FTTP tech

The current generation of passive optical networks provide 2.488Gbps downloads and 1.244Gbps upload speeds – 10/2.5Gbps 10-GPON deployments are rare.

Japan’s Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) and Oki Electric Industry announced a successful demonstration of a passive optical access system that provided 40Gbps over 40 kilometres, serving 1024 users – 40 times the transmission capacity of existing systems, and 32 times more users than today’s passive optical networks (PONs).

Sure glad we are moving away from FTTP model for the NBN. That technology is clearly not future proof /sarcasm.
