FSAN and the Broadband Forum Collaborate on GPON

The Full Service Access Network (FSAN) and the Broadband Forum will collaborate on efforts to expedite GPON
deployments, enhance multi-vendor interoperability and enable better broadband network fiber
integration around the world. A new working group focused on defining GPON test suites, addressing interoperability and standards compliance has been established and will meet at each of the Broadband Forum's quarterly meetings.

As a part of that effort, the 11th FSAN - GPON Test Event, normally only open to FSAN members is now
open to Broadband Forum GPON system integrator members as well. Hosted by the University of New
Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory's (UNH-IOL) GPON Consortium the week of June 21, 2010, this
event is an opportunity for all GPON system integrators (manufacturers of ONTs and OLTs) to test the
interoperability of their implementation (s).
