Fiber To The Home (FTTH) deployments continue to enjoy accelerated growth worldwide, with major deployments underway in Japan (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation [NTT]), Korea (Korea Telecom) and the United States (Verizon). Passive Optical Networking (PON) deployments are currently segmented in two flavors: Ethernet PON (EPON) in Japan and Korea, Broadband PON (BPON) in the United States (e.g., Verizon FIOS). The BPON deployments in the United States are expected to transition to Gigabit PON (GPON) in 2008. In Europe and North America, Competitive Local Exchange Carriers (CLECs) are trialing and deploying PON very aggressively to provide services that differentiate them from the Incumbent Local Exchange Carriers (ILECs).
