The next generation of PON technologies are essential to meet ever-growing bandwidth demand and ensure that the fibre networks built out today can be used for decades to come. This paper examines the future PON fibre technologies beyond 10Gb/s.

Driven by unprecedented demand for Gigabit and fast-emerging 10 Gigabit Broadband, Fiber to the Home (FTTH) deployment is expected to reach record numbers in the coming years.

Since its emergence in the late 2000s, coherent technology has undergone several transitions.
