Across the nation, environments vary greatly for network deployments. While providers gravitate toward uniformity, they find fiber solutions to be inflexible, hard to implement and options limiting. This exposes service providers to additional business, financial and operational risks. The lack of innovation and flexibility limit the service providers’ ability to compete. The companies who succeed in striking the balance between uniformity, innovation and flexibility will win the race. Let’s explore the options that service providers have to mitigate and manage their risks.

Attendees will learn about the various business, financial, technology and terrain risks that must be considered when building a fiber network.  While avoiding risk completely is not realistic, there are steps you can take to reduce the possibilities of an event that puts the network at risk. Equally as important, is knowing how to build a network that minimizes the impact from risk, should an event occur.  Attendees will learn techniques for managing risks within the network and planning for success.
