FTTH Design Metrics for Greenfield Deployments

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


As Fiber-to-the Home networks are becoming more widely deployed, minimizing the cost and time of that deployment has become paramount. Every design choice the engineer makes about products or installation methods has a ripple effect that extends to the financial model. Understanding these effects will enable designers to create better networks and help entrepreneurs to create more profitable businesses. To this end, the authors have created both quantitative and qualitative models to assess the merits of FTTH designs. By holding baseline factors stable and altering one variable at a time, the individual impact on cost and deployment time is demonstrated. Compounded optimization is then demonstrated by altering multiple variables, simultaneously.
