What are the technologies that will power the Anywhere Network®? As our old-generation network expires and broadband becomes more utility than luxury, many have begun to question whether a sustainable and profitable business model for fiber exists. With a virtually unlimited capacity, scalability and potential for ubiquitous-ness, the technology itself appears a sure winner in the race for the next-generation network. But what will make fiber a successful investment?
Vendors and service providers have struggled with finding a business model that works for fiber to the home (FTTH). The current single source, one service provider for one customer model is too constrained. Rather, companies must look beyond the historical strategy of investment versus competition, embrace interoperability and work together to employ an open-access model for FTTH.
In this webinar, analysts Benoit Felten and Wally Swain explore how an open-access FTTH business model works, how to optimize it and what makes it the best solution for vendors and service providers.
