Webinar Recorded on Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Ribbon based cables? Are we still talking about a technology that has been around since the 70s and 80s? Its time in the spotlight has come and gone, right? Ribbon based cables may not be the hot new term or the technology grabbing the attention and basking in the limelight of network design or deployment discussions, but this technology is still delivering many advantages of legacy, new and planned deployments. Why? Simply because it delivers!

Ribbon based cables deliver on the fiber capacity and density, meeting the physical space constraints, lowering labor and installation costs, yielding high quality, and performing optical pathways, ease of use and short learning curve and much, much more. The advantages of ribbon cables are not limited to just one or two deployment types. Newer benefits in newer applications are being uncovered even though the bases of the benefit have been there all along.

This presentation will review the history of ribbon-based cables, including recent and coming innovations. We’ll take a close look at the many, many advantages across multiple network and deployment applications. By the end of this presentation, you should have a good understanding of why and how ribbon cables are still a go to and starting point of many network plans and deployments.

Attendees will gain a good understanding of ribbon-based cables, why and how this technology is still a go to and starting point of many network plans and deployments.

Webinar Recorded on Wednesday, September 15, 2021

Having the right data at the beginning of a project can make all the difference in the ultimate success of the project. A shared lament from geospatial professionals is the phrase “garbage in, garbage out” when referring to the dubious quality of input data before starting a project and/or undertaking an analysis. At the most basic level, building out a new fiber or broadband network is an incredibly complex and overwhelming venture on its own, but beginning with bad data – whether out of date or just inaccurate – introduces a new set of challenges that further complicates the process.

Cyclomedia webinar inset graphics

Many CSPs, in the early design and engineering stages of the project, find that they have limited, ground truth knowledge of their current asset inventory i.e., the type, location, and condition of their current network assets. It’s essential that, before planning a rollout, adequate tools be available to allow them to both gather and confidently analyze a broad base of project relevant geospatial data. As a result, the CSP can then not only produce a “true” inventory of the organization’s assets but also have early visibility to potential hurdles to project success as well as any features/parameters that might be leveraged to their advantage. However, historical methods of gathering this important asset data manually through labor intensive field surveys can compound and even introduce new errors into the process through inaccurate measurements in addition to being CapEx costly, time-consuming, and putting workers at increased safety risk.

Cyclomedia, as the global innovation leader in street level imagery, has proven real world experience in not only collecting and delivering the highest quality street-level data with robust asset datasets, but also the most accurate data with consistent ground truth accuracy less than 10 centimeters (<4 inches). This data provides an exceptionally reliable source-of-truth dataset using the power annotated high-resolution street level imagery and advanced LiDAR point cloud technology. By leveraging the Cyclomedia solution to optimize confident inventory knowledge at the project outset during the design and engineering phases, CSPs can avoid costly remediation, get to market faster AND gain a competitive advantage.

Webinar Recorded on Wednesday, July 14, 2021

When looking at the somewhat daunting task of network design and build, providers are faced with a series of challenges. Overcoming these challenges can already be a struggle, and the pressures that adding 5G deployments in addition to a standard network build only expands both the complexity and the difficulty of these deployments. Additionally, with the reduction of available skilled labor, providers are faced with the added problem of training and equipping technicians that have little or no background in the industry.

By approaching your build with a more systematic approach, (CORE/OSP/Access) and breaking each component into individual subsystems, designers and builders can quickly and easily meet the demands of their customers.

We will look at each component of the network build both individually and as a combined part of the overall deployment. With this approach, viewers will see how each of the components of the network build mesh into a single ecosystem that can easily incorporate unforeseen extras such as 5G locations and other non-traditional items. Attendees will also see how Clearfield’s Labor Lite approach to network builds can help reduce both time and costs associated with design and build by using advancements in connectivity, fiber management and deployment. Also, the building block approach allows network builders the ability to easily add those unforeseen additions or changes before, during and even sometimes after a network has been built. This approach, coupled with Labor Lite components, gives the provider the flexibility they need to operate in today’s changing markets while providing a way to utilize a younger, possibly less technical labor pool.

For those that would like a little different approach to designing and deploying a fiber network that can incorporate 5G, fixed wireless, DAS, as well as their traditional fiber-to-the-home customers, this webinar will attempt to provide you with options and solutions to help you achieve your network deployment goals as well as providing methods and products that can help reduce labor costs associated with those builds. 

Register today for an opportunity to explore a different approach to your network build. 

Attendees will be exposed to drivers in today’s fiber and 5G network markets as well as how to incorporate a systems approach using Labor Lite methods and procedures.

Webinar Recorded on Wednesday, June 9, 2021

At the beginning of the pandemic, many projects were delayed because we had no idea how to protect ourselves from COVID-19. The more we learned about this virus, the more we found that social distancing is an important way to reduce the risk of getting the virus. Keeping projects going during the pandemic was very challenging, but necessary because the optical fiber network supports our everyday lives.

During the pandemic, many businesses and schools shifted their operations to working online. The optical fiber network supports our lifelines and education that keeps us connected to people/customers outside the house (or work) without traveling. Telecommunication network enhancement and optical fiber expansion became more important in many businesses, thus, many contractors across the world are working as essential workers to install optical fiber networks, even during the pandemic.

Air Blown Fiber technology uses blowing equipment to install fiber bundles through pathways. With Future FLEX ABF, a 3,000 foot installation can be completed with only 2 people in 30 minutes. And, of course, installers at the site are socially-distanced. Not only a fast and safe socially-distanced installation, but also a single fiber blow will cover all types of spaces (such as outdoor, plenum, and riser) without having any fusion splices in the middle. The Future FLEX ABF system has a variety of tube cable types with ratings (OSP, Plenum, Riser, Low Shrink, and LSHF) that the installer selects for the space. Every time the space environment changes, use a tube distribution unit (TDU) to create a tube cable splice point to connect the  different rate tube cables to one path.

Connecting different types of tube cables to one path allows the fiber bundle to travel all the way from the starting point to the destination point without disruption. Therefore, only 2 installers can complete a fiber bundle installation in multiple spaces with one single blow.

Another advantage of ABF is the minimum disruption installation. Essential services, such as hospitals and transportation facilities, must remain open to maintain operations during the pandemic, but some require optical network expansion to support or improve the demand. With ABF, there is no disruption in business. The fiber bundles travel to pathways using blowing equipment, so physical access requirement is only at the blowing point and the destination point, and only one person in each location. There is no need of sharing a space with other installers nor heavy equipment that requires multiple people to set up. Installers usually stay in a communication room when indoors. Therefore, no risk of exposing themselves to COVID-19.

Future FLEX blowing equipment does not require electricity to operate, yet still powerful enough to blow fiber bundles at a long distance. Performance is dependent on the type of tube cable and the size of the fiber bundle. Many ABF installations were completed during the pandemic by providing a solution to complete optical fiber installation while keeping socially distant.

In this presentation, attendees will learn how Fiber installation has been beneficial during the pandemic. The precautions that are taken to install fiber cables and bundles will be discussed. A question and answer session will follow the presentation.

Webinar Recorded on Thursday, June 3, 2021

Every network is somewhat unique, depending on the situation. Not all networks can be designed with the same topology or follow the same design rules, so networks must be customized to drive efficiency in design and deployment. Network operators must take into consideration a variety of factors, including geography, network services to be deployed, and available network technology.

In this webinar, you will learn several FTTH network topology solutions traditional telco and MSO service providers can utilize to optimize their total cost of ownership and increase the speed of deployment to meet deployment timelines. These considerations and solutions are based on proven technologies, architectures, and strategies that support deployments from low-density rural, to medium-density suburban, to high-density urban, as well as both greenfield and brownfield projects to ensure successful and revenue generating deployments. Topics to be covered include:

  • Geographical Location and Density: Rural vs. Suburban vs. Urban
  • Topology Split Options: Centralized, Distributed: Cascaded or Indexing, TAP
  • Deployment Technology: Plug-and-Play vs. Splicing
  • Speed of Deployment: Skill Level, Reducing Labor Requirements
  • Project Services: Implementation Often Requires Augmenting Capabilities

Determining the best topology solution set for your FTTH network deployment involves many difficult decisions. Therefore, CommScope has developed the FTTH network ePlanner. This webinar will preview the FTTH ePlanner, which is an interactive guide that helps network engineers and consultants understand and navigate the multiple decisions that go into transforming their conceptual network vision into a working design. It takes you step by step through the major infrastructure decisions -- from the central office or headend, feeder and distribution network, to the inside of the customer’s home. Each section introduces you to the key topologies, product types and design considerations involved in building your network. Interactive decision trees guide you in configuring a customized broadband network design and understanding the product options to implement your strategy.

This webinar and the FTTH network ePlanner are the products of CommScope’s 40+ years of broadband network design and success. It includes the insights gained from our involvement with the global standards bodies and field experience with service providers of all size. What’s more, our fiber network architects work together with network planners, engineers, and consultants to find the best solutions every time to help customers like you maximize ROI and accelerate deployments.

For the RDOF winners and their consultants, selecting the right network topologies, technologies and product solutions can be difficult. This webinar will focus on CommScope’s interactive FTTH ePlanner, which is tailored to help you configure a customized broadband network design.
