Methods of FTTP Deployment


[link to this post]
 
Here's a nice video which serves as a reminder of the challenges of deploying fibre networks.

Specific mentions here on civil engineering works, the most expensive bit, covering various different methods including microtrenching and plowing.

Interesting video. This video must sent to to the government of UK and BT Openreach to learn from this lesson!

Just remember if those clips were in the UK, there would be a lot more traffic lights, safety barriers and road closures involved too

I would have a wild guess that Openreach are very much aware of these technologies given that the air blowing of ducting you see was a BT invention.

Indeed. These appear to have been done in countries less obsessed with following health and safety regulations to the letter and JFDI.

You'll find that a lot of countries are very interested in Openreach's brownfield deployment of FTTP, such to the extent that a number of teams have been out to the Middle East on a number of occasions to demonstrate their deployment.

If Openreach could financially deploy FTTP to every single house, flat, building, business, they would. The problem is it is just not financially viable for them to do so.

Given how over budget and late that deployment is in MK that's bordering on alarming.
