Description:

Deploying FTTH is not accomplished overnight. For operators overbuilding existing DSL networks, the cutover process and ultimate decommissioning of the copper network can span months or even years. Thoughtful planning on the new physical infrastructure, preparations to manage concurrent operational demands as well as considerations for when and how to offer new services to consumers are just a few of the insights panelists will share. Panelists from operators large and small share their experiences in cutting over from copper-based networks to all fiber networks covering: Service level offerings, Customer communications and acceptance, Cutover service area identification, Technician staffing and training, Results vs. expectations, CAPEX & OPEX implications, Overruns and adjustments
