What’s Next in FTTH Webinar from FTTH Council Fiber Community

September 9, 2011 | By Anthony Capkun

September 9, 2011 – The FTTH (Fiber-the-the-Home) Council will host a Fiber Community Web Seminar on September 14 at 2 pm EDT featuring Richard Goodson, director of industry standards and technology analysis (CTO Office) with Adtran.

Seminar details
There are a multitude of new fiber optic technologies being developed to meet new needs for higher bandwidth, simplified operations and better utilization of fiber optics. One development of particular interest is wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) PON. This adapts WDM electronic equipment developed for the transport network for use in the access network. WDM-PON can provide the kinds of speeds seen in metro networks (currently up to 100 Gbps). Deployment in homes and businesses, especially in multi-dwelling units (MDUs), is expected to occur in the next few years. Come learn about these and other FTTH technologies under development.

Goodson has nearly 30 years of communication technology experience, from spread spectrum radios to xDSL and PON. He has a BSEE from The University of Alabama and an MSEE from the University of Florida. He participates in the Broadband Forum, ITU-T, FSAN and ATIS, and has been at Adtran since 1995.
