Three Main Factors Affecting FTTx Deployment

Share

When operators weigh up their FTTx architecture options, a number of factors will have to be taken into account. These include what assumptions are made about customers’ bandwidth requirements; the topology of the existing legacy network; the level of competition from cable operators; the cost of laying fibre to the node compared with running it the way to the home or building; population density, and the regulatory environment. For the purposes of the The FTTx Mini-Guide, we will focus on three key areas: customers’ bandwidth…

OSP Outside plant construction

Share

Overview The deployment of a PON architecture requires a number of outside plant components, including the optical distribution frame, splitters, splicing closures, and wall-mounted boxes on the home or the building. It also requires fibre-optic cables with specific performance characteristics, both in the indoor and outdoor environment. The selection of cables and associated components, as well as how they are implemented in the network – including the splitting ratio – are key to optimizing capex and to reducing opex. The network owner will require comprehensive expertise in these areas if PON…

Big Data for Telcos: cutting OPEX, improving service quality – and deploying services faster

Share

Big Data has won acclaim – and rightfully so – for helping marketers improve the efficiency of their campaigns, assisting doctors in making diagnoses, fighting fraud, detecting hacker attacks, and even predicting financial markets. While most of the attention has been on consumer applications, Big Data analytics and techniques can be applied to telecommunications and carrier networks as well. In this article we shall discuss how Lifecycle Service Orchestration techniques can be used to cut the operational costs of carrier networks, improve the quality of…

GPON vs. EPON Costs Comparison

Share

GPON and EPON Technology Comparison The key factor for determine FTTH network cost is understand the performance characteristics of the PON tecnology. because The PON upstream/downstream bandwidth, bandwidth efficiency and the splitting ratio will affect it. the following table have a brief comparison about the GPON and EPON technology. detailed comparison please read our blog: GPON GEPON Comprehensive Comparison Refer to the above table, GPON seemed is more competitive than EPON technology. GPON support more flexible OAM, with better interoperability and security. which is necessary…
