"If you thought fibre to the premises was the end state for fixed access, think again: F5G takes optical distribution networks deeper indoors."


This report presents a preliminary view of F5G, a vision of full-fibre access networking that goes well beyond the familiar GPON-based fibre-to-the-premises paradigm. We assess some strengths and weaknesses of the vision and discuss where vendors need to focus to make any of it reality.

This report provides:

  • an overview of the ETSI F5G vision
  • our perspective on its strengths and weaknesses
  • our view of what vendors need to focus on to make it happen.
