Outside Plant Architecture Considerations

The strategic asset of any local service provider is in their last mile connection to the end users. Often these networks are taken for granted or swept away as necessary evils by those business units providing products or services to end users. Yet, herein often lies the types of products and services which may be offered and, more importantly, for what cost. These sessions leverage a extensive background with twisted pair, Switched Digital Loop Carrier systems (SDLC), fiber optic, Hybrid-Fiber optic-Cable (HFC), Fiber-to-the-Curb (FTTC), and Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH, E-PON) architectures to chart a course for where costs can be saved and functionality gained. There are also business practice considerations that add value to the chosen topology or edge interface design between the network and DEMARC which ought to be considered when starting on a new upgrade or green field build.
Developers and construction contractors may also benefit from similar sessions to better focus their infrastructure towards desired goals of affording their tenants or land owners access to advanced telecommunication networks and competitive service providers. Often has been the case where installed fiber optic cables go unused, conduits are aligned incorrectly for access and egress, network termination wiring is either excessive or found short, and always there is the gap between those who built it, those who rely on it for service and those who eventually operate and maintain it. If you want to build a sub-division, office park, or vertical mixed use condo and market that space as having advanced fiber optic communications, make sure your plans include the local service provider(s). It will save you both time and money.
