    1. Central Office Offerings: CommScope leads the industry in optical distribution technology for management and routing of fibers in high density Central Office, Headend and Data Center Applications. At FTTH, we are highlighting how CommScope Frames can ease connectivity complexity, aid in rapid deployment, and smooth reconfiguring networks to reduce risk and speed new service roll out. With innovations such as CommScope access trays, universal adapter packs, cabled modules and MPO modules, installing and maintaining large amounts of fiber can be done faster, easier and less expensively than any previous ODF solution available on the market.

    2. Network Convergence and Network Architecture Challenges: Service Providers must leverage investments in fiber networking to drive multiple service offerings within a single access network. Through fiber network convergence, a service provider could deliver a wider range of services, adopt new business models, offer innovative services and enter new markets. Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks offer a footprint that is optimal for supporting broadband offerings in combination with support for fast-growing mobile applications such as distributed antenna system (DAS), small cell and Wi-Fi backhaul and/or Centralized-RAN front-haul. CommScope can Service Providers 

    3. Closure Portfolio: CommScope’s history in development of splice closure technology has resulted in a family of products that span any environment and application a service provider will encounter. The full line of optical closures is based on modular designs to improve technician effectiveness, ruggedness and space savings to assure lifecycle cost benefits and speed of deployment aiding in service turn up. 

    4. Next Generation Hardened Solutions: Speed of network deployment and subscriber service activation is a critical part in sustaining Service Provider growth and customer satisfaction. To maximize speed and agility, one must maximize labor productivity. hardened connectivity connectors and terminals simplify installation, improve reliability and reduce the time a technician spends to connect a subscriber in the last mile of the access network. They are all designed to withstand the rugged outside plant environment. CommScope continues to roll out enhancements to the FTTx hardened connectivity portfolio that creates best in class performance.  
     
    “Impact of Virtualization on FTTH deployments and Operational Efficiencies"
    When:Tuesday, 14 February | 2:30-4.30pm Room WS1 rudy
    Speaker:  Rudy Musschebroeck - Director, CCS Business Development, Connectivity Solutions
    Description:Service providers active in low density or rural areas are very often new entrants in the market and face very specific challenges. The workshop will provide perspectives on critical business areas these new Service Providers must consider when bringing their access networks to market. We will articulate the discussion as follow:
    • Network planning: Considerations around the specific needs of rural roll out in term of Network planning and how software solution can address these challenges
    • Passive Infrastructure: Considerations around building and operating the passive infrastructure of the network and strategies to minimize the costs and risks of design and deployment
    • Active Infrastructure: Considerations around building and operating the active infrastructure of the network and the impact various related choices
    • Service delivery: Consideration around how and by whom services are delivered to customers, including methods to ensure a high-quality and consistent customer experience throughout delivery
    • Financing: The growing importance of public and private monies in financing these new entrants and the perspective of lenders on credit and operational risks when pricing and providing such facilities
     

     


    “Rural Fibre Networks”

    When:Thursday, 16 February | 2:00-3:15pm Room 3Erik Gronvall
    Speaker:  Erik Gronvall - VP Market Development CommScope
    Description:Service providers active in low density or rural areas are very often new entrants in the market and face very specific challenges. The workshop will provide perspectives on critical business areas these new Service Providers must consider when bringing their access networks to market.

     


    “How to converge wireless fronthaul/backhaul and FTTH networks - Strategies and practical solutions"

    When:Wednesday, 15 February | 4:15-5:30pm Room 3 Pat Thompson
    Speaker:  Patrick Thompson - Vice President, Business Development CommScope
    Description:With C-RAN deployments gaining momentum and 5G on the horizon, fiber is being recognized as a strategic asset to support wireless cell densification. Large incumbent service providers have both wireline and wireless operations, so converging onto a single network and maximizing asset utilization makes excellent business sense. For smaller operators, addressing multiple market segments with a unique FTTH network limit their risks and maximizes the return on investment. In this address, we will propose technical solutions and architectures which will help you plan the evolution of your fiber infrastructure and prepare for converged networks.
