B2 -  September 9, 2012 | 2:00pm – 5:00pm
POF for Multimedia Home Networking

The tutorial will show how optical and wireless services can be integrated in an optimized and cost saving way and how a future proofed infrastructure can be achieved by combined installation of electrical and optical POF cable. The tutorial will also show practical examples for integration of the major Eco-Systems according the CENELEC Roadmap and ISO specification. A guideline how to combine FTTH in-building access network with POF Home Network in order to support flexible access to all kind of services will be presented.
