How far are you going? We are pushing almost 20 miles on a 1x32 split. Are you using one 1x32 or multiple smaller splitters?

|I'm looking at rural areas (like a few houses per mile). As I'm looking at hypothetical power budgets for PON, I'm finding that if I run the line down the road and put splitters on the pole I can split 5-6 times and then I'm getting too low on db to keep going down the road. At 5 or so houses per port, a 1U, 8 port ONT is no denser than a 1U switch.
Your stated reasons for PON are all correct. The numbers just aren't seeming to work out for me.
I also figure if I install enough fibers for AE, I can still switch to PON some day if I want to.
We would never max out the PON port, but looking back on the past 15 years of growth in consumption I wonder if I should ever say "never". In AE I can put 100Gig in every house if I have to. I'll "never" have to do that as far as I can imagine, but my imagination could be limited.
