The Full Service Access Network (FSAN) Group is a forum for the world’s leading telecommunications services providers, independent test labs, and equipment suppliers to work towards a common goal of truly broadband fibre access networks. FSAN has more than 70 member organisations, including more than 20 Network Operators, that represent the leading experts in BPON, GPON, XG-PON, XGS-PON and NG-PON2 technologies.
The Mission of FSAN is to drive existing standards into the services and products in the industry, while simultaneously advancing its own specifications into the appropriate standard bodies. Great care is taken to ensure that there is minimal overlap or duplicated effort with other organizations such as BBF. FSAN is not a Standards Development Organization in itself, and does not liaise with SDOs, nor does it otherwise accept or issue liaisons. FSAN member companies bring technical contributions relating to current study topics to FSAN meetings and act as editors for FSAN documents. Typically, FSAN member companies will offer contributions to ITU-T SG15 Q2, based on completed FSAN work items that are intended to promote the development of global PON standards.
The single FSAN Working Group is called Optical Access Network (OAN). Within OAN are the following active Task Groups:
Additional Working Groups and study topics in FSAN may be initiated as required by FSAN participants.
