  1. 1. Global Perspectives on Evolving Fibre in the MDU Installation Technologies and Practices Jason Pedder, Director Product Marketing, OFS EMEA John George, Director OFS Systems and Applications Engineering www.ofsoptics.com
  2. 2. Global Perspectives on Evolving Fibre in the MDU Installation Technologies and Practices Outline Drivers and Challenges of Fibre to the MDU Deployment Experiences Lessons Learned and Provider Needs ! " # #
  3. 3. Global Fibre to the MDU Drivers Carrier Investment to Profit from Increasing Bandwidth Demand Future proof solution is mandatory New applications (e.g. 3D, Super HD video, etc.) will mean fibre to building is not sufficient. Fibre to the Unit will be needed Regulator influence and competition Multiple deployment models - Each can drive different fibre infrastructure needs! Government driven Broadband stimulus Global Consensus: Fibre to the Home (and each MDU Unit) is becoming mandatory to support valued applications and be globally competitive ! " # # $
  4. 4. Global Fibre to the MDU Challenges Cost – greater concern due to Global Financial Crisis and Competition Increased scrutiny of deployment cost – particularly first cost MDUs using conventional cable solutions can cost 50% more to pass than SDUs “Broadband Divides” – some areas will get fibre first Favoured – Greenfield and Affluent Areas Challenged - Brownfield – most MDUs and less affluent areas Government / regulator intervention to ensure opportunity for equal access to all? Lower cost approaches required to deploy Fibre to MDUs in a variety of building structures and regulatory environments Optical Networking Units are decreasing in cost (and size!) Consider all passive components and supporting installation hardware Consider time to deploy ! " # # %
  5. 5. Deployment Experiences Focus on New Options ! " # # &
  6. 6. Global Fibre to the MDU Deployment Considerations Greenfield Makes sense. Put in best option from day 1 as you build, i.e. fibre! Requires co-ordination with builders and utilities – who pays for what? Slowdown in new house building, but signs of new starts? Brownfield Ownership structure of buildings Access to buildings, types of building and infrastructure Availability and skills of installers – will impact on volume deployments. Providers wants / needs Flexibility – grow and connect on demand Reliability – works first time, no repeat “truck rolls” Speed of deployment – numbers will be huge when the tipping point reached. Cost effective – right balance of speed, cost, reliability and performance. European situation is similar to the rest of the world ! " # # '
  7. 7. Global Fibre to the MDU Planning Approach Example – Northern Europe Classify Building Types, Architectures, then Minimum Set of Optimized Product Solutions Cable Cable Cable Cable ! " # # (
  8. 8. MDU Structures and Applicable Fiber Solution Examples 2 – 10 floors – most popular count Globally – NAR examples Traditional Exterior Cabling Option is Now Possible with Fibre Outdoor/indoor bundled cable assembly can pass 24 units in 2 days vs. 6 days for Sharp bend indoor solution through Uses G.657 B3 brick Ultra-bend insensitive fibre UBIF Spliced Pigtails Indoor/Outdoor with SC-APC Cables Coil with protected connector ready to route, staple, bend into unit a plug into ONT ! " # # )
  9. 9. MDU Structures and Applicable Fiber Solution Examples Vertically installed from outside the building - Argentina Termination Termination Box Box Cable can arrive the roof Bridal Rings Bridal in two ways; Rings from another building, or from the street up Tight Tight buffer Buffer drop cables Drop Cables Cable Ties Cable Ties to the Steel to the Steel Messenger Messenger ! " # # *
  10. 10. MDU Structures 2 – 10 floor MDUs – indoor examples France – but many European and older US cities are similar Riser in raceway and exposed Cable in Existing conduit conduit with copper cable ! " # # !
  11. 11. MDU Structures and Applicable Fibre Solution Examples >10 floor MDUs – Global examples US Hong Kong Australia Spain Malaysia Netherlands ! " # # !!
  12. 12. MDU Structures and Fibre Solution Examples Indoor Compact Plug and Play Examples currently in use - NAR Architecture > 5 floors Up to 5 floors Terminal Ceiling Floor ONT UBIF Drop Compact 3.6 mm dia. 12 fiber riser cables fit compact spaces (5 cables in 10 mm dia.) ONT Conventional Cabling Pre-connectorised Combiner with spooled riser FDH OSP Passive Closure FDH Installation ! " # # !
  13. 13. MDU Structures and Fibre Solution Examples Indoor Compact currently in use – Europe and South America ! " # # !$
  14. 14. MDU Drop Cable to and in the Unit Greenfield in Wood/Metal frame Construction – US, Canada, Australia, Some in Europe and Asia G.657 B3 Ultra-bend insensitive fibre drop G.657 A1 bend insensitive cable eliminates need for conduit, enables fibre drop cable in micro- compact slack storage for easy plug and play conduit. Easier to replace if needed. Staple Storage G.657B3 UBIF drop with splice-on or factory mounted plug and play connector ONU in Closet ! " # # !%
  15. 15. MDU Drop Cable to and in the Unit - Corners are the challenge Brownfield or Greenfield in Hallway and Unit –Asia, NAR, Europe Shown US Malaysia US France US RAF 4.8mm G.657 B3 Ultra-bend Cable insensitive fibre drop cable: Maximum allowed Can be reliably stapled macro-bending loss: around corners without • 0.4 dB loss conduits and negligible RAF in 4.8 mm cable in this simulation: bending loss. • 0.16 dB loss Reliable Service: Predicted Drop Cable Failure Rate: <1 per 5 million FTTH subscribers/yr, if each cable is under conditions of TPR 9424 MDU Simulation * D. Mazzarese, et al., “Reliability Considerations for Next-Generation Bend Optimized Fibers”, Proceedings of the 57th International Wire and Cable Symposium (11/2008). ! " # # !&
  16. 16. MDU Drop Cable to and in the Unit – Existing Conduit Brownfield in Hallway and Unit –Used in Asia – interest in Europe Low Friction Cable Can be pushed into existing conduit present in many Asian and European and South American Buildings ! " # # !'
  17. 17. Connectorization in the MDU - Mechanical Splice Connectors First in APAC, spreading now to NAR, EMEA.CALA Over 10M in service in Japan supporting FTTH installations since 2004 ~ 1 minute installation time! 1. Fibre is prepped and cleaved while in the fibre holder. 2. The fibre remains in the holder during insertion to maintain proper angle alignment. 3. The wedge is released and installation is complete. ! " # # !(

  19. 19. Global Perspectives on Evolving Fibre in the MDU Installation Technologies and Practices Lessons Learned and Provider Needs Flexibility – Lowers cost by supporting many building types, pathways, regulations - no one right way! – Must be able to grow and connect on demand – The right combination of multiple solutions needed for each provider that are adaptable to the deployment requirements. Reliability – Lowers cost - works first time, no repeat visits. – Wider deployment of bend optimized fibres – G.657.A1 types very widely accepted. – Use of G.657.A2 and/or G.657.B3 fibre types depends on: Infrastructure, Speed / skill of installers, risk tolerance – Corners driving increasing use of G.657 B3 fibre Eliminates protective trunking saving $20 to $40 per unit. Speedy Deployment – to faster revenue at lower cost, an increasing need with competition and volume deployment. – Growing use of pre-connectorised solutions for final connect. – Faster / easier field connection methods. – Many inputs which determine choice. !
