Future-proofing last-mile fibre access network

Thursday, March 11, 2021, 3:00 PM IST / 10:30 AM London


Data consumption is growing rapidly, whether it is at home, in the workplace or on the move. With economic activity depending more than ever on digital infrastructure, investments in network rollout will accelerate. The number of network endpoints will surge due to increasing FTTx penetration, 5G and IoT. All this will require a reliable and future-proof fiberization in the last mile access network.

In this webinar, we would cover various factors which would enable scalable, reliable, robust, and sustainable last mile fiberization. This would cover not only the technical aspects of the roll out, but the requirements of human capital and infrastructure limitations which typically is an unknown element when it comes to the last mile connectivity.

Key takeaways : –

–  key components of last mile connectivity

– key features for future proofing

– Overcoming most common challenges
