We will explore several fiber network environments, common vulnerabilities, and the business impact of failures. Fiber networks are typically a combination of owned and leased fiber. Learn how to reduce MTTR by up to 60% when an event occurs and how to detect degradation before it generates a service impact. Fiber monitoring of leased fiber helps ensure that the responsible party is dispatched for repair and SLAs can be managed. We will discuss both in service and out of service monitoring. Learn about the opportunities to improve business results in the following environments:

  1. Hyperscale datacenters- the business need for near 100% uptime
  2. 5G small cell combined with leased fiber - ensuring the SLA for leased fiber
  3. Long haul and Metro dark and lit fiber monitoring - reducing MTTR and preventing damage
  4. FTTX construction and service activation in the access or MSO network - accelerating time to revenue
  5. Security- preventing fiber tapping and data theft

A substantial percentage of the world, especially millennials, live in multi-dwelling units (MDUs). Competition among service providers is fierce to target the lucrative MDU market due to resident demographics (millennials need for always-on connectivity), demand from building owners and the favorable economics of bulk contracts. However, no MDU is the same, so service providers need to think about a broadband toolkit approach that allows them to speed delivery of Gigabit services at lower costs and with minimal tenant disruption.

In this insightful Light Reading radio show, Kurt Raaflaub, Head of Strategic Solutions Marketing, will outline the key service provider challenges, deployment considerations, next-gen Gigabit technologies, and service models to win market share in the rapidly growing MDU market.
