nbn Australia have announced their trialing new technology capable of delivering 10Gbps symmetrical speeds. To ensure they can meet future demands of broadband such as customers expectations and hardware infrastructure. It makes sense for nbn to be at the forefront of emerging technology. The name for the technology doesn't roll of your tongue NG-PON2: The next fibre frontier. However we all want fast internet.
The nbn blog have published an article on how it works and why they wish to pursue this technology.
"With that objective in mind, we have been conducting trials of one next generation fibre technology, Next Generation Passive Optical Networking (NG-PON2), with Nokia, one of our fixed-broadband technology vendors, over recent months.
NG-PON2 is the next stage of access fibre technology and we wanted to find out more about how it works and how we might be able to use it in the future on the nbn™ network – and we were certainly not disappointed!
In our tests conducted in Melbourne we achieved stunning trial symmetrical speeds of 10Gbps across a single shared fibre* – that’s ten times faster than the top wholesale speed we are able to offer to our Retail Service Providers (RSPs) over the Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network today.
At present on the Fibre-to-the-Premises portion of the nbn™ network, we are using current Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology from which we are currently able to deliver a top wholesale speed of 1Gbps".
