FTTH Conference 2009 FTTH Configurator

  1. 1. Name function
  2. 2. FTTH network solutions are sustainable • In 2008 PricewaterhouseCoopers – Ecobilan and FTTH Council Europe have undertaken a first study in order to compare the environmental impacts of FTTH networks with its associated benefits • We have showed that the environmental impacts of the deployment of a FTTH network will be offset by its associated benefits within less than 15 years In others terms, building and running the network have environmental costs, but the services enabled by the network create the potential for greater environmental savings.
  3. 3. Findings based on a reliable methodology • Life Cycle Assessment methodology has been chosen to quantify both environmental impacts and savings in accordance with ISO series of standards • This method is based on a multicritera-oriented approach • The scope of the model has been extended to cover different environmental indicators – Greenhouse gas effect – Water eutrophisation – Non renewable Energy consumption – Etc.
  4. 4. 2008 study findings • We consider environmental benefit as the difference between the environmental impacts of a service to these associated savings for the environment Payback time is the time required to generate as much savings as impact. Energy payback time is about 15 years
  5. 5. FTTH Council goes further • However, outcomes of this previous study are extremely dependant on prior assumptions such as : – Network technologies (P2P / PON) – Length of fibres – Deployment technologies (Microtrench, etc.) – Etc. • Hence, FTTH Council offers to its stakeholders the possibility to modify the key parameters in a simple way via a Web tool : case by case basis simulations can now be carried out • Online calculator is a refined version of the model in the hands of network planners and operators
  6. 6. How does it work? • A set of parameters is implemented in the calculator such as: – Total cable miles – Potential number of subscriber – Penetration rate – Average distance of home-work round trip – Etc. • The calculator will process these numbers and gives you detailed and accurate results on how your FTTH system will impact on the environment for both its implementation and its associated environmental savings (telework, telepresence, etc.)
  7. 7. Filling out : a user-friendly tool
  8. 8. Ecobalance : accurate results
  9. 9. Graphics: a striking presentation
  10. 10. Who do we expect to use it? • It has been created for all relevant stakeholders like municipalities, network-operators, local authorities and all organisations who try to deploy environmental friendly FTTH communications systems
  11. 11. FTTH COUNCIL EUROPE Thank you for your attention!
