The project achieved its objectives, and a set of new network components was developed.
For each of the planned components, innovative features and technical and technological challenges have been overcome, namely: coexistence and migration, specific service support, resilience and redundancy, adaptability, low cost, reduction in the number of terminal equipment in the customer’s home and increased debt and improved performance.
During the project, preliminary study activities, technical specifications, acquisition of new knowledge, research and development of new solutions, construction of prototypes, tests and tests and promotion and dissemination of results were carried out.
The development of the FUTPON R&D project has allowed both promoters to consolidate their knowledge in new areas of research that will dictate future trends in optical platforms for access networks with integrated management.
The following dissemination channels were used to communicate the achieved results and acquired knowledge:
- Publications in journals and conferences;
- Conferences / Forums;
- Publicizing marketing actions with potential clients, where some of the products under development were presented;
The FutPON project has associated a set of positive externalities for the economy. Upstream of the Altice Labs value chain, it has had an extremely significant economic impact, propagated in the following dimensions: suppliers of raw materials and other components, external supplies and services and the relationship with IS & I entities. Downstream, the presentation of products with the level of innovation proposed has brought a strong added value to potential customers.
