CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks, has published its first FTTX eBook, “Fiber to the X Fundamentals,” encompassing all aspects of outside plant fiber deployment. The entire 49-page book is available for download now.

“We get so many questions from our customers – who are either deploying an FTTX network for the first time or are curious about new technologies – about how they can benefit from the performance and economics of the right network,” said Mark Alrutz, vice president of global field application engineering for CommScope’s service provider customers. “We decided to summarize this knowledge into an eBook that shares with our customers CommScope’s considerable fiber expertise.”

The eBook’s four chapters are the culmination of a months-long process of distilling the knowledge of CommScope’s though leaders on fiber, as well as curating material from global customers, partners and distributors on what makes an FTTX network thrive. It wraps all of CommScope’s experience as a fiber infrastructure provider into one document containing many of the lessons learned and projects fulfilled: 

  • Chapter 1: The history and future of fiber to the X
  • Chapter 2: From fundamentals to real-world choices
  • Chapter 3: Network architectures: options, benefits and considerations
  • Chapter 4: How to make an FTTX business plan work

An interactive graphic can be found on CommScope’s website as well, easily shareable on social media. The graph touches on the increasing bandwidth demand, global internet connection speed and global subscriber growth. Readers can also check their FTTX IQ with a shareable quiz. The entire eBook and its assets are designed to be a helpful guide in any FTTX journey, whether customers are deploying one for the first or tenth time. Keeping a keen eye on the future of fiber deployment, while learning from the past, is key to a successful walk through the process.

“As the saying goes, if you don’t learn from history, you’re doomed to repeat it,” said Alrutz. “This eBook is a way to study the past to prepare for the future. We’ve learned so much over the years about how to truly make FTTX networks work and grow.”
