Fiber rollout services: Invite the experts
The demand for fiber is growing and it’s not just for broadband access and fixed line networks. Fiber provides the backbone to our ever expanding global communications network including mobile, fixed line, access and core. With more fiber being deployed faster than ever before, service providers are faced with numerous challenges to modernize and expand their networks quickly, while dealing with the ever increasing complexity, rising costs, and fiercely competitive timescales. The sheer size of these massive fiber projects puts unrelenting pressure on planning, design and field deployment teams to meet demand. But how can service providers compete and stay ahead of the pack in the fiber stakes?
Two things are needed for a successful fiber rollout project, 1) the right management tools and 2) the experts to guide the project. Service providers are increasingly turning to outsource specialist services to gain the expertise and tools they need to meet growing fiber demand.
Service providers need to develop a sound fiber rollout strategy which involves critical design and planning based on different types of technology and architectures. Key challenges include developing competitive offerings, operations support readiness, enabling cost efficiency and the careful assessment of skills and capabilities.
Automation now plays a pivotal role in both planning and network deployment, and can significantly cut the cost and time to deploy by orchestrating high volume change processes across multiple teams. Use of state-of-the-art design and process management tools can help service providers become more agile by speeding up repetitive tasks and removing the drudgery of manual chores.
To explore these issues further, Amdocs have published a new white paper entitled ‘Meeting fiber demand with a smarter approach to network rollout’.
The paper takes a look at the challenges service providers face when planning and deploying various fiber network technologies in an era of fierce competition and cost control. Specifically, the paper examines how specialist services can help service providers apply process automation and end-to-end project orchestration to speed up planning, design and implementation of fiber network modernization programs.
By inviting in the experts, Amdocs can help you to implement best practice fiber deployment and accelerate your fiber business by providing specialized network planning and rollout services combined with the latest process management tools.
