With the booming of global ICT technologies, broadband becomes an indispensable infrastructure at the access layer. With the advent of the 5G era, vertical applications such as VR, cloud gaming, and home IoT pose higher requirements on fixed broadband rates. According to Ovum's research report, the demand on broadband rates will gradually increase in the next 5 years. By 2024, about 60% of users will require a bandwidth higher than 100 Mbps.

With the development of 10G PON standards and the maturity of the industry, bandwidth-hungry services are emerging, and favorable policies are being released in different countries, pushing access optical modules towards higher transmission rates. GPON is the mainstream standard of the previous generation, and accounts for a large proportion on global live networks. The GPON installed base will be gradually upgraded to 10G GPON to meet new service requirements.
XG/XGS combo PON optical modules have been widely used on devices at central offices. HiSilicon Optoelectronics Co., Ltd. has been focusing on the access optoelectronics field for more than 10 years and has made many technical innovations. HiSilicon provides a full series of end-to-end 10G PON optical module and component solutions with a variety of specifications, providing comprehensive and diverse pipes for the gigabit era of fiber connections.
