Fiber Architecture for Lower Density Rural FTTx Deployments for the Capacity Management

A major benefit of the tapped distribution architecture is the significant reduction in fiber that is required to serve a rural area. Scott Terrill, Senior Vice President, Business Development, Pulse Broadband, and Tom Anderson, Director, Product Management, Advanced Broadband Solutions, CommScope, gave a presentation during the 2012 SCTE Cable-Tec Expo® on how every operator can leverage advancements in Passive Optical Network technologies to cost effectively extend reach of current plants with new build using fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), launch new markets with FTTH and prepare for FTTH upgrades.
