  5. 5. 4site’s fiber journey…..  Completed first FTTN designs 10 years ago  2006 to 2013, engaged in low run rate FTTN rollouts - planning, design and certification  Commissioned comprehensive FTTX market analysis in 2013  Developed expansion strategy and integrated fiber services into core business operations  Created dedicated fiber solutions department  Invested in people, tools and ongoing development cycles  Rapidly expanded capacity and competency between 2014 and present to service FTT(H)(B)(C)(A) projects and opportunities  Constantly exploring new tools and ways of working to improve design process and deliver greater program & cost certainty
  6. 6. Our fibre services…save time, control costs 1. Optimised FTTx design Network survey, data validation and design service  Flexible design  Speed of delivery  Quick time to revenue using – Proven methodology – Expert fibre planners – Powerful software tools 2. Independent FTTx verification and optimisation Prove validity of existing designs and improve where possible  Deliver on metrics  Budget focussed  Iterative review and consolidated deployment approach – Managed program – Change receptive – Independent – Client tailored solution
  7. 7. The challenges…..  Defining most appropriate network architecture  Accuracy of GIS input data  Managing an evolving end to end solution  Components  Guidelines  Onboarding resources  Staying within the lines  Time / Cost / Quality
  8. 8. Our approach Design-led thinking Collaboration Tools & expertise GIS + Rules Automate & Optimised Design BOM + Costs Network Inventory
  9. 9. The Challenge The Solution The Result Reduce time taken to complete designs Increase accuracy of costings Reduce time taken to complete BOM and develop cost model 4site conducted full process review Reimagined the design process Introduced new design tools Automated a number of time consuming tasks Speed: Reduction in design time Accuracy & Managed Risk: BOMs automatically linked to model space Budget Management & Margin: Improved Cost Accuracy Case Study: National Urban FTTB deployment
  10. 10. The Challenge The Solution The Result Proof of Concept (POC) for a rural fibre deployment. 4site’s Fibre Design Model to be tested against client’s approach 4site fibre design tools and methodology applied to: Rural cluster Underground feeder from POP Overhead distribution 4site model proven and delivered real advantages;  Reduction in network design time  Reduction in deployment costs  Multiple design iterations without extensive cost and resource  Optimised design rule benefits  Accurate costs produced +/- 5% Case Study – PoC Optimised FTTx Design
  11. 11.  No one size fits all approach • Integration with existing client processes and tools • Incorporate new components and architectures • Optimised tools to speed up the process  Developed multi-layered delivery teams • Experience & competency mixes • Fiber, Tx, Civils, ROW, GIS, PM • Wisdom and tech wizardry  Input data quality • Critical to verify accuracy of any existing GIS records • Optimally time & scope field survey to verify data, support design & pre-start build
