|Committee||ITU-T STUDY GROUP 15|
Recommendation ITU-T G.987.1 addresses the general requirements of 10 Gigabit-capable passive optical network (XG-PON) systems, in order to guide and motivate the physical layer and the transmission convergence layer specifications. The general requirements include examples of services, user network interfaces (UNIs) and service node interfaces (SNIs), as well as the principal deployment configurations that are requested by network operators. This Recommendation also includes the system and operational requirements to meet the needs of supporting various business and residential applications.
