This paper proposes a techno-economic analysis of the optimal deployment of multiple PON networks with different technologies, including the newest next-generation standards, such as GPON, XGSPON, NG-PON2 and 50G-EPON, within a large urban area in Quito. On this zone, we simulated a population of around 20000 customers, distributed between two central offices. We assume that customers demand different bitrates considering present and future bitrate-demand scenarios. This analysis uses an algorithm called OTS (Optimal Topology Search) which employs a nested set of heuristics in order to find the optimal topology for the deployment of PON in large areas with many potential customers. Results obtained in this research describe an accurate projection of the optimal deployment cost and the most suitable PON technology for each bitrate demand scenario, taking into account not only the cost of the entire hardware, but leasing, labor-hours, pole-works and trenching/recapping-works.
