    Workshop:Converging Wireless Fronthaul/Backhaul and FTTH Networks
    When:Tuesday, September 12 | 1:00 pm – 3:00 pmErik Gronvall
    Speaker:  Erik Gronvall, CommScope

    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 the traffic onto a single access network and maximizing asset utilization makes excellent business sense. For smaller operators, addressing multiple market segments with multi-use FTTH network limits their risks and maximizes the return on investment.


    Conference Session:The Impact of SDN and NFV on Fiber Connectivity and Capacity
    When:Wednesday, September 13 | 8:00 am – 9:00 amCraig Culwell
    Speaker:  Craig Culwell, CommScope

    Improved network performance, greater agility, lower costs, and new services – the transformational benefits of Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) for service providers are truly compelling. As the functions of different networking elements are re-architected, their redistribution across software and hardware resources causes profound changes throughout the physical network. While computing and storage resources can be pooled, abstracted and virtualized, the underlying fiber optic network requires a different model for migration. Building a more agile and dynamic infrastructure requires new topologies and upgrade paths for the fiber cabling and connectivity layer – from the data center and central office through to the outside plant.

    In this presentation, the speaker will discuss strategies and considerations for:

    • Migrating to cloud topologies for data center, fixed access, and mobile networks
    • Addressing and anticipating fiber capacity upgrades
    • Leveraging automated infrastructure management (AIM) solutions to ensure accuracy and visibility in the face of constant moves, adds, and changes.
    • Maintaining network uptime and redundancy
    • Optimizing the availability and efficiency of unused network assets
