This presentation will start with an overview of the various PON services and look at the trend for PON service deployment. Then a quick explanation of the key differences between broadband versus PON power meters will follow and looking at the situations where you can and cannot use a Broadband PM and why. We will look at the challenges faced around the final fiber connection to a subscriber’s premises, specifically how to establish if you have the correct drop fiber and terminal connection, and the technology embedded in the transmission equipment (PON-ID) that can help confirm and troubleshoot issues.
