SK Telecom announced that it successfully deployed 5G-PON(Passive Optical Network), next generation technology for distribution networks, that can deliver both LTE and 5G communications services.

Distribution networks refer to networks connecting base stations with remote units and antennas installed at the premises. Unlike the conventional distribution networks, where different types of network are required for 3G, LTE and broadband access, 5G-PON solution delivers multiple communications services using a single network.

The solution will facilitate the process of delivering a broader coverage for the 5G rollout by simply installing base stations and antennas without additional networks.

Also, it requires smaller devices and equipment than the existing distribution technology and operates without additional power supply. The conventional device need to be installed inside the premises for power supply.

5G-PON solution, however, can be built in outdoor settings as it requires no power supply, delivering a higher level of satisfaction to the premises.In addition, the solution can be constructed in a protected ring architecture.

Choi Seung-won, Head of Infrastructure Strategy Division, Sk Telecom
With 5G-PON built on our own specifications, we secured opportunities to improve the quality of service and lay the foundation for a successful rollout of 5G.
