… and in many cases FTTH is the more suitable solution ü Loop length variation & copper quality ü Symmetry and latency ü Migration ü Open network structure ü OPEX
Fiber will continue to penetrate deeper in the access network,and at increased speeds Cumulative percentage of copper converted to fiber = 10x more fiber construction vs 2000 - 2010 = 20x more fiber provisioning
Fiber in access networks requires smarter technologiesCore Network = Static Physical Layer• 1 step = construction• No planned changes• Long – few connections• Stable and secureAccess Network = Dynamic Physical Layer Terminal• 2 steps = construction & provisioning Distribution hub• Constant churn of customers• Short – many connections (x6) Wall outlet• Vulnerable – repair & maintenance Co-location Building distributor Floor distributor
The industry has to provide FTTH solutions meeting the needs of deep fiber deployments in the access network1 Improved Speed of Installation Create products and processes to reduce ordering time & are easy to install2 Reduced First Cost AND Total Lifetime Cost Choose value added features that reduce and avoid post-installation maintenance3 Decreased Need for Installation Skills Design in reliability. Decrease direct fiber handling. Avoid unnecessary labor (e.g. measuring).
