Alternative Architectures to Bridge the Digital Divide

Track: Engineering

Session Number: 1073
Date: Tue, Jun 2nd, 2020
Time: 1:00 PM - 1:50 PM

Description:

Fiber-rich, home run and centralized split architectures have dominated fiber to the home deployments in North America thus far, primarily serving more dense metropolitan areas. As we look beyond the suburban into more rural landscapes, alternative architectures are becoming increasingly more attractive. Distributed split architectures and associated solutions provide operators an opportunity to lower costs and justify builds that otherwise may not be financially feasible. In this session, attendees will be presented with the facts on fiber-lean, distributed split network options. With unique advantages, limitations, design and maintenance considerations, distributed split networks may be the best fit for operators large and small to reach underserved/unserved areas – helping to bridge the digital divide.
