China adopts 2.5G EPON

12 Feb 2009

China's Communications Standards Association has added 2.5G EPON (Ethernet passive optical network) as a standard specification for fiber-based broadband access networks, according to Teknovus, maker of the chips called Turbo-EPON.

CCSA's adoption of 2.5G EPON enables service providers to offer more bandwidth per subscriber for multiple tenant units, including residential and business subscribers.

China is poised to surpass Japan with the largest number of fiber subscribers by year-end with an expected 20 million FTTx subscribers by year-end 2009.
