WDM PON Forum Mission Statement

 

The goal of the WDM-PON forum is to provide a resource for researchers, component and equipment suppliers, carriers, and other parties interested in passive optical networking technologies that utilize dedicated wavelengths as a method to provision services in access networks and to promote and advance the technologies required to enable cost-effective wavelength division multiplexing in Passive Optical Networks.

 

The forum endeavors to advance these technologies as means to provide high bandwidth, scalable services with physical-layer security, low energy consumption, and low total lifetime cost of ownership.
