This strong continued pressure in terms of rapidly growing bandwidth demand and limits to capital availability have led ILECs to leverage their installed base of TDM PON technologies and legacy copper network as long as possible.

The need for extreme cost reduction that aggressive service pricing has placed on the access network has further compounded the problem.

Meanwhile, municipalities, utilities, and building owners have found a business case supporting the roll out of point-to-point Active Ethernet solutions for FTTx.
