Summary

Among the challenges that Outside Plant (OSP) networks face, are the phenomenon of convergence, or carrying multiple types of traffic, and improving sustainability. In this session, Josh Simer, AFL’s Market Manager for Service Providers and MSOs, will talk about how:

  • Convergence is really a consequence of the fundamental need to improve ROI.
  • Sustainability is complementary to, not opposed to, the need to reduce total costs of ownership.
  • Both goals can be accomplished by applying the acronym SAFER™ to network design: Sustainability, Accessibility, Flexibility, Expandability and Reliability.

What the audience will learn: 

  • An approach to OSP fiber network design which will help maximize sustainability and ROI.
  • How fiber optic cable & connectivity manufacturers are supporting this approach to network design.
