FTTx Case Study Series eBook
Information Resources  
This eBook serves as trip down a memory lane of sorts, recalling how CommScope helped standardize one MSO’s network after several mergers, or how we trained fiber optic technicians on an ambitious broadband rollout. What we did a decade ago or yesterday or what we will do five years from now matters. And our customers matter.
Broadband networks case studies - Innovating the future of FTTx and HFC networks
Information Resources  
This whitepaper includes eight case studies of FTTx deployments for broadband access networks. Case studies covered include expansion of fiber architecture in a rural area, deployment of broadband for a national utility and a high-speed rail line, fiber infrastructure capacity and speed upgrade by a major operator, rural to urban expansion of optical transport and FTTH, and more.

The digital divide in North America is leaving millions without adequate broadband. Incumbents operate in “islands” of connectivity, serving densely populated areas and, at a national scale, perpetuating the digital divide in the gaps in between their service footprints. Regional ISPs have a clear role in closing that gap.

These regional ISPs operate in a highly fragmented landscape, including smaller wireless and FTTH incumbents, satellite ISPs, electric co-ops, tribal communities, and municipalities in public/private partnerships. These regional ISPs face the same cyber threats and operational challenges as their Tier 1 counterparts, but with far fewer resources and revenue-generating population density. As a result, many regional ISPs have developed highly innovated business models for access and core technology, partnerships, financing and services.

The discussion will cover:

  • Three ISPs that have taken an innovative approach to their business, as detailed in a recent STL Partners report
  • Why regional ISPs need to double down on core security basics such as DDoS protection
  • How ISPs have created new revenue by offering managed services
  • Core network capabilities required for IPv4-IPv6 management
