A Cost Effective Topology Migration Path Towards Fibre

TNO, Delft, the Netherlands
Abstract—If an operator has as starting position a Full Copper topology in which ADSL or VDSL is offered from the Central Office, the next choice he has to make is to provide Full FttH or use another topology option, e.g. FttCab, first as intermediate step to provide a next generation service package. In this paper we present a gradual topology migration path from Full Copper via FttCab and Hybrid FttH towards Full FttH. We look at the planning issues of this topology migration and the financial impact in comparison to the direct FttH roll-out. For this we present a case study in which we compare the costs of the presented gradual topology migration path to the alternative Full FttH direct option.
