F5G: new frontiers for fibre access
17 September 2020 | Research
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.
