  1. 1. Attacking the competitive Norwegian FTTH- market with GPON – Telenor strategy and experience so far Project Manager, Jan Helge Høgvoll Optical Networks, Technology, Telenor Norway FTTH Council Europe Conference 24th-25th February 2010, Lisbon
  2. 2. - Telenor - A global provider of telecommunications services * 100 % figures - all companies per Q2 2009 14 Countries 172 M mobile subscribers(*) Fixed Service Customers in the Nordics A leading Nordic position in Broadband 1,7 M mobile, broadband Telephony 1,9 M and TV services Broadcast 2,0 M Mobile 7,0 M
  3. 3. Content Agenda • Market situation in Norway – Why enter the FTTH segment • Services and status on fibre roll-out • Technical solution • Outside plant – New solutions • Challenges • Conclusion
  4. 4. Status FTTH september 2009 • Norway has the largest number of subscribers on FTTH in Europe(*) Source: FTTH Council Europe (*) Sverige – Large amount of FTTB • Telenor – so far a small player within FTTH in Norway – Appr. 7000 customers EOY 2009
  5. 5. Regulations in Norway • Cu: – LLU and Sub-loop LLU – Telenor also offers: – Wholesale IP – Wholesale DSL • Coax: – No regulatory unbundling or demands for opening up networks • Fibre: – No regulatory unbundling or demands for opening up networks
  6. 6. Competition in Norway Fixed Telephony Television 2500000 # of subscribers 2000000 7% Cable/Other 10 % 1500000 VoIP Fiber 1000000 PSTN/ISDN 47 % DTT 500000 Sattellite 0 Cable TV 35 % 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 H H H H H H H H H Internet Access 90 % 80 % 70 % Other 60 % 50 % Cable 40 % Fiber 30 % xDSL Source: 20 % Norwegian Post and 10 % 0% Telecommunications Authority 1H05 1H06 1H07 1H08 1H09
  7. 7. The choice of fiber In the Norwegian market a winning concept is 3 play over FTTH. Whether there is a need for broadband bandwidth or not – the customer wants fibre In the Norwegian market competitors offer some of the best 3 Play solutions in the world Telenor responds this competition with 3 Play: - Docsis 3.0 in areas where Cable TV network easily can be upgraded - VDSL2 in selected areas - FTTH in areas where upgrade of infrastructure is necessary and in selected areas. Take rate is key.
  8. 8. • Market situation in Norway • Services and status on fibre roll-out – Which services do we sell? • Technical solution • Outside plant – New solutions • Challenges • Conclusion
  9. 9. Broadband services over fibre (FTTH) – In the ramp-up phase Telenor has sold FTTH with Broadband and IP- Telephony. – First customer established 4Q/08 – Sale of IPTV started this week, pilot test for several weeks in live network Fibre Based Internet Access Services €55 €68 €173 Capacity for IPTV not included in this capacity Technical solution scales to significantly higher capacities and potentially to address other markets.
  10. 10. • Market situation in Norway • Services and status on fibre roll-out • Technical solution • Outside plant – New solutions • Challenges • Conclusion
  11. 11. Telenor’s choice of GPON • Telenor’s strategic choice – Use of fibre in the access network Upto 7168 • Possibilities with GPON cust/ rack – Reuse of infrastructure – Lower OPEX – Possible capacity for customer - upto 1Gbit/s Optical • Standardised solution - ITU-T splitter – Increasing volumes gives technological development and cost reductions – Future proof
  12. 12. Telenors broadband platforms Home Network • Same CPE-equipment for TV all accesses IP net STB RG – Remote Gateway – RG ONT PC – Set Top Box – STB TEL TV • Same concept for the RG STB service independent of the physical access PC TEL – Simpler development of WiMax new services RG – ”Any service, any port” PC TEL • Simpler logistics Example of a home cabinet solution in customer’s home
  13. 13. How does IPTV influence the need for capacity in the network ? – A first indication/example • Traffic on ” a few” pilot users of IPTV approx 500 HSI customers on OLT – In busy hour, most of the traffic is multicast – Upto 5x cap. In Busy Hour compared to DSL – Symmetric capacity compared to DSL • A lot of capacity for further growth with GPON technology No TV – OLT1 Incl. TV – OLT2
  14. 14. Network structures – OLT Node Plan • Pro-active planning of OLTs for FTTH • Purpose – Case study – challenge traditional RU RU Cu-based planning RU – Build competence on fibre planning CO 1:32 1:64 – Create target network – Create tools and databases for 1:32 Sales & Planning RU Marginal 0 km 8 km 15 km 20 km 12 km
  15. 15. • Market situation in Norway • Services and status on fibre roll-out • Technical solution • Outside plant – New solutions • Challenges • Conclusion
  16. 16. Sub ducts in existing ducts
  17. 17. New aerial solutions
  18. 18. New cabinets
  19. 19. Micro trenching
  20. 20. Micro ducts
  21. 21. New documentation system, interfacing old systems
  22. 22. • Market situation in Norway • Services and status on fibre roll-out • Technical solution • Outside plant – New solutions • Challenges • Conclusion
  23. 23. Challenges Sales first – then build Many local competitors •Choose •Sell •Plan •Build •Deliver area All processes must be revised, all information flow is altered ~ 160 competitors TV Many new boxes with new services handled in several new and legacy STB process and information systems RG Ethernet based Home Networks, ONT PC QoS, WAF? TEL New techniques and components, this is not copper!
  24. 24. Challenges - How will the regulatory framework evolve? - Broadband vs. Super broadband - GPON - Interoperability between vendors of OLT and ONT. - Co-existence between NG-PON and GPON in the same PON - Significant cost reductions in technology and infrastructure solutions for FTTH. - Cooperative housing/High rise buildings - Public willingness to try out new solutions - Take rate is essential for the Business Case
  25. 25. • Market situation in Norway • Services and status on fibre roll-out • Technical solution and network design • Infrastructure – New solutions • Challenges • Conclusion
  26. 26. Conclusion • Significant competition between service providers of broadband and 3P-solutions – In Norway in particular, within FTTH • Telenor has established the technology, systems, processes and competence to deliver FTTH – We are now at the start of next generation infrastructure • Need for a continous improvement of technology, cost reduction and competence within fibre in the time to come
