Broadband Forum ratifies TR-200 EPON technical report

The Broadband Forum took another step towards extending its influence into the optical communications arena at its annual meeting in Boston with the ratification of a technical report on the use of EPON for access and aggregation.

The Broadband Forum took another step towards extending its influence into the optical communications arena at its annual meeting in Boston with the ratification of a technical report on the use of EPON for access and aggregation. The report, “TR-200: Using EPON in the Context of TR-101,” is designed to aid carriers using Broadband Forum DSL architectures and standards to deploy Gigabit and 10-Gigabit EPON equipment within Broadband Forum-specified architectures, either independently or alongside other access technologies.

The TR-200 EPON report builds on TR-101, “Migration to Ethernet-based DSL Aggregation,” which the Broadband Forum approved in April 2006.

The Broadband Forum, originally the DSL Forum, has expanded its original charter to include optical communications (see “Broadband Forum: We’re more than DSL”).

Copies of the report are available from the Broadband Forum.
