About G.fast Summit
The second edition of the G.fast Summit, will be held in Paris, from May 19 to 21, 2015. Last year, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T) took the first step towards standardizing G.fast, the next major DSL-based standard which vendors hope will provide a "fiber-like" experience. Next steps consist of testing and early deployments. The 2015 edition of the G.fast Summit will mainly cover reports from the first testbeds, interop sessions and field trials. As was the case last year, the most renowned experts will be highlighting next steps for G.fast, based on what has been developed and published in 2014.
