Ericsson announced today that it will show the “world’s first” 10Gbps Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) system for IPTV, with four times the bandwidth of existing GPON systems, at NXTcomm08 in Las Vegas.

The company will also introduce the 8-port GPON board as the latest addition to the EDA 1500 GPON system, which the company says doubles its capacity and improving cost-effectiveness.

“Growing demand for a personalized, interactive and high-quality television experience is driving the demand for IP-based deep-fiber access networks, and GPON has emerged as a key enabling technology,” says Hkan Hkan Eriksson, the company’s chief technology officer.
