Revolutionising Manufacturing with XGS-PON Connectivity.

Lancashire, UK – 2023


To keep up with the dynamic landscape of modern manufacturing, organisations must embrace the very cutting-edge digital solutions to save costs and automate and streamline processes. One of the most effective ways to boost productivity and ensure a seamless connectivity solution that improves the production chain from end to end is deploying XGS-PON connectivity. Symmetrical upstream and downstream speeds are a game-changer for manufacturers, unlocking many opportunities that optimise operations and cut costs. 

What is XGS-PON?

XGS-PON is an updated standard for Passive Optical Networks (PON) that can support higher speed 10Gbps symmetrical data transfer. XGS-PON is evolved from the existing GPON technology, it is essentially a higher bandwidth, symmetrical version of GPON.

IoT Integration 


One of the most significant opportunities for manufacturing industries in the UK with the emergence of XGS-PON technology is the birth of the Internet of Things. The manufacturing industry already heavily relies on IoT technology to monitor operations, but IoT devices are bandwidth-hungry, and copper legacy networks need to provide more capacity to accommodate. 

With traditionally only 80 Mbps up for grabs on copper networks, harnessing the full extent of the IoT was impossible. With XGS-PON capability via a full-fibre connection, manufacturing companies can harness the bandwidth needed to seamlessly integrate IoT devices and forget about latency infringing on their real-time data collection, as well as predictive maintenance, remote equipment monitoring and security systems. 

Advanced Automation and Robotics 


Symmetrical upstream and downstream connectivity is the backbone for integrating advanced automation and robotics systems. Manufacturers can use robotics for precision tasks, such as product assembly, to reduce error and speed up production time. 

Without latency, robotics can assemble products without faults, improving product quality and customer satisfaction. This frees up time for employees to divert their attention to quality control and other time-consuming processes to drive industry development. 

Supply Chain Management 


XGS-PON opens up a new realm in supply chain management, offering the bandwidth and speed for real-time visibility across the supply chain. Manufacturers can easily track inventory levels that help them better communicate with suppliers to minimise waste and deadstock and track shipments and production processes. This enhances communications and optimises demand forecasting, reducing stockouts and efficiently allocating resources and investments. 

Smart Factories 


With XGS-PON, manufacturing businesses can link all their aspects of production on an end-to-end basis, connecting raw materials to end products. With this interconnected system, organisations can identify inefficiencies at any end of their production process and optimise accordingly. With no drop-offs or downtime and symmetrical upstream and downstream to keep data in sync, manufacturers can harness XGS-PON technology and take it to a new level! 

Product Visualisation 


When it comes to the product generation process, there is no more important stage than the design and creativity stage. However, multiple blueprints and liaisons between designers can make this process costly. Using limitless bandwidth connectivity to facilitate 3-D printers, projectors, and much more can grant excellent product visualisation opportunities, offering manufacturers and design teams better chances at identifying errors or inefficiencies before they enter the production stage. This real-time collaboration potential means XGS-PON can unlock the potential to re-invigorate product generation. 

Fourth Industrial Revolution 


XGS-PON allows UK manufacturers to place themselves at the forefront of the cyber-physical transformation in manufacturing. With increased speeds comes a remarkable ability to respond to market trends early, and automation to improve product quality means UK manufacturers can become marketplace leaders. Manufacturers can gain a competitive advantage while driving innovation and operational efficiency, helping them compete with overseas contenders.
