Distribution Network

The distribution network will be dependant on your drop strategy. The drop strategy referrs to the nature of your way of connecting the customers. By air, by existing conduits or by digin dowm a brand new duct for the fiber cable.

Drop Network

This is the most time consuming part of the network build. We need to interact with all end customers and that will take a lot of time. This has to be the most well managed part of the network build.

Documentation & Verification

Once your network is built you need to document it for the future maintenance and possible augmentation.

Network Map

GPS measurments is required to get an acurate network map.

Network Topology

You need to document the network topology down to the infdividual fibre strand in a cable and how the cable are joined.

Measurements

There is only one type of measurement required in an FTTH access network and that is an OTDR which gives a clear view of every splice in the fibre path.

Operations

An FTTH network is a low maintennace cost type of network compared to a copper network. There are reports showing a drop of 90% in maintennace cost in the access network when converting to an FTTH network.

Monitoring

The network itself is monitored by the active equipment attached to each side of the fiber path. This requires a dedicated system.

Provisioning

Once the customer wants to activate his connection is this done in a portal. The portal is providing a selection of services providers and handles billing as well as revenue collection for the service provider.

Customer Care

The customers expects to be notified in a proactive manner when the system fails. If they have a problem on their side of the connection is it often a smart thing to offer a service aimed for help with the hope aplliences such as Wi-Fi routers and computers.
