New services like Video on demand, Television (IPTV), high speed Internet access and Voice over IP on top the same link are called Triple Play services. These services demand very high bandwidth to customers. ADSL and ADLS2+ aren’t enough for supporting the new bandwidth requirement. One suitable solution for high bandwidth demand with a long reach is to use optical cable to customers (FTTX). Nowadays there are two technologies GPON (Gigabit passive optical network) and EP2P (Ethernet point-to-point) fighting for to be implemented in network access. This paper makes an evaluation between both solutions and it tries to answer the next question: What is the best solution for supporting requirement of Triple Play applications?
