This decade will see unprecedented growth in broadband networks, both mobile as well as fixed (to the home).? On the home access side, new fiber optic deployments are enabling a quantum leap in the access rates that are available to consumers.? On the mobile side, one of the key bottlenecks has been in backhaul to the cellular base stations, and the growth of small cells providing high-speed 4G and WiFi access has exacerbated this issue.? This session will deal with these two market drivers and the resulting growth in fiber-based deployments.
Milo Medin from Google will discuss the Gigabit access networks that Google is currently building out in Kansas City and elsewhere.
John Georges, of Vodafone USA will talk about the rapid growth of small cells and the capacity needs which are driving the fiber build-out to provide the necessary backhaul.
