10G Platforms Interact With the World

What is 10G?

Unlike the 3G, 4G, and 5G, where the (G) means the generation of mobile technology, 10G is a trademark of NTCA. 10G refers to the fiber cable speed of 10 Gigabytes per second (Gbps) and is an upgrade of the current 1Gbps. These will help to achieve better security, low latency, and it is highly reliable in a fully wired home broadband.

5G is around the corner, what are the implications on Wi-Fi service? The challenge for operators is to improve the offer to home Wi-Fi users. How will 5G and Wi-Fi compete and integrate? Learn more on our blog post 5G, the New Challenge for Wi-Fi.

With super-fast internet, the network will deliver 10Gbps to millions of customers around the world. It comes at a critical time when customers and software developers need a reliable and strong network that will meet the requirements of future innovations.

10G – PON Solution

The Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) works on Ethernet, ATM (Asynchronous Transfer Mode) and TDM (Time Division Multiplexing). The network consists of two transmission equipment, Optical Network Unit (ONU) and Optical Line Termination (OLT). Currently, the fiber networks on GPON technology have a bandwidth of 1 Gbps, and it is insufficient to meet the expected growing demand.

With 10Gbps symmetric variants of PON, it is more affordable and will help operators to promote the fiber in the copper out process and boost the bandwidth. 10G-PON fiber technologies will support the 5G infrastructure despite it being a wireless network. These are not new since earlier mobile networks 2G and 3G used TDM to connect mobile phones with nearby mobile switching centers.

Benefits of 10G Platform on Cable

Increase Reliability

As networks evolve, operators need a reliable platform to accommodate the growing number of smart household devices. Their goals are to maximize network capacity and minimize the errors in transmission. The network should be free of slowdowns, hanging, or glitches, and consumers who move around cities will not experience a break in connection. With a reliable network and safe internet connections, innovations such as medical surgery, self-driving vehicles, and home security will develop.

Improved Security

With expectations to connect more devices in homes and businesses, network providers are assuring customers of security in the network. 10G has sufficient security in their networks that help to decrease hacking, theft, and loss of data. When tackling security issues on networks, providers are ensuring the safety of IoT through specification requirements and policy. Other approaches are the prevention of IP address spoofing, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning anomaly detection, and fingerprint detection.

 Less Latency

Low latency refers to the ability to process large volumes of data with minimum delay. Current interactive innovations require low latency networks, with real-time access such as Virtual Reality Gaming, and robotic surgery. 10G technology will not slow down data, for it reduces latency to 1 millisecond.

Network Convergence

Network convergence is merging multiple communication modes such as 5G, wireless, cable, and Wi-Fi into a single network. The convergence to a singular network offers flexibility and convenience, which offers better solutions to data centers. With the co-existence of the communication modes, providers will cut costs on the operation, and improve communication services. It is faster, uninterruptible, and consumers will have flawless access to video conferencing, video streaming, among others.

Future of 10G with 5G

10G is expected to offer better possibilities for video streaming, augmented and virtual reality, and medical care. The broadband is competing with the 5G networks. Eventually, with a wider 5G broadband, they will work together each to meet customer’s demands. These will help to provide a fast and reliable mobile network in areas such as IoT applications.

Finally, 10G networks have fast symmetrical speeds that feature improved reliability, enhanced security, and low latency, than previous cable networks. It will help to improve the existing technologies with the combined efforts of other network providers and partners.
