Happy new year to all readers.

The big news reported on Lightreading today is about Korea Telecom (KT) going ahead with the deployment of 800,000 EPON connections. This is the first large-scale deployment of EPON in Korea. Although KT has been investigating PON including WDM-PON for quite some time now, the target of close to a million subscribers in 2007 is big news.

The main equipment builder is expected to be Dasan which will be using PMC-Sierra (Passave) chipsets.
