Society’s reliance on high-speed broadband networks within Europe is increasing rapidly. Many households now have more than fifteen devices connected to the internet. There has been an explosion in streaming video subscription services and the shift to home working has also resulted in a change in demand for fiber connectivity, away from city centres and into the suburbs and more rural areas.
As a result, FTTx solutions have gained fresh impetus owing to their higher speed and better reliability. Yet despite the burgeoning demand for fiber connectivity, the economics for an operator can be challenging.
In this Spotlight session, join us as we discuss CSPs’ current progress towards a full fiber future for Europe and identify how the traditional cost challenges associated with FTTx deployment might best be overcome.
