As demand for higher bandwidth and network speed continue to rise, service providers need much more bandwidth than the current GPON technology can provide. Gen Z, millennials, and even Gen Xers are keen on video streaming and sharing videos. With the popularity of TikTok, Reels from Instagram, and Twitch, these applications require higher bandwidth applications and capacity.

These devices include connected TVs, streaming media players, Blu-ray disc players, video game consoles, laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones.
