As we are all familiar with Worldlink since it is the largest ISP in Nepal, we have some news about it. As we know it has an FTTH network in the present situation, it is now planning to upgrade to the XGS-PON. Here, we will discuss Worldlink XGS-PON in detail.
What is XGS-PON?
PON stands for Passive Optical Network. It is a telecommunications technology employing fiber-optic to transfer data from a single source to multiple endpoints. And the XGS-PON is an upgraded standard for PON to handle up to 10GB of data transfers.
You can enable symmetrical data transmission in both upstream and downstream directions via this technology which will mean there will be the same upload and download speed for you.
As of now, Worldlink has GPON or Gigabit Passive Optical Network technology for data transmission. There is a difference in the upload and download speeds of the transmission where the highest upload speed measures 1.25Gbps and the download measures 2.5Gbps. This means that when the new system takes over, it will also meet the rising bandwidth demand. In addition, there is a lower latency in the technology where the internet connections will be provided to 256 users which is almost double when compared to the 128 people on the current system.
Testing and Launch
According to the news, Worldlink is all set to upgrade to set its system from the GPON to XGS-PON technology. Worldlink is even planning to upgrade the current FTTH network clients to the new XGS-PON network from next week.
And to top it off, now you can have internet connections with a speed faster than 1Gbps which might be very helpful for some people. To note, Worldlink isn’t planning to stop here but will soon start testing the 25G-PON soon while collaborating with Nokia.
