A major benefit of the tapped distribution architecture is the significant reduction in fiber that is required to serve rural areas. During the 2012 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo®, I gave a presentation with Scott Terrill, senior vice president, Business Development, Pulse Broadband, on this topic.
Our presentation demonstrated how operators can leverage advancements in Passive Optical Network technologies to cost effectively extend the reach of current plants with new fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) builds, launch new FTTH markets and prepare for FTTH upgrades.
