Re: Correction

Can RFOG later be used as GPON?
I keep trying to imagine what the limits are of a local MSO that uses RFOG with fiber drops. But when I see their aerials I think of everyone connected to a single fiber strand and something like fios, where everyone has their own individual piece of fiber back to those cabinets where they all connect to must have more future capacity? Then again I have no idea if those fiber aerials have a strand for each home, or just one large one for all?

Depending on how GPON is set up, it can be as fiber-dense as active optical or might just use one fiber per node, with splitters running off the main drag like coax. In answer to your GPON/RFoG question, I think they can actually coexist on the same strand.
