Workshop 4c
Digitalization of the fibre journey

Co-organised by Keypro, Setics & Plumettaz with contributions from Elkom GmbH and DigPro with Eltel Networks & Netadmin Systems with contributions from INCA UK

Building a fibre network and business is a major undertaking. It requires large capital investment and coordination of complex projects. On the journey from securing investment, planning, building, operating to generating revenue there are several challenges operators face.

With limited available skilled resources and a disorganized way of working, it’s hard to maintain the high rollout pace necessary to meet business case targets. Operational inefficiency and bad data quality make many operators struggle.
This workshop will show how digitalizing the fibre journey in each step helps operators to work more efficiently, enable growth, and create a sustainable fibre business.

    Axel Dehne, Managing director, Elkom Ingenieurbüro GmbH 

    Discussing the benefits of digitalization in the FTTH network from planning to network management. We will go through step by step the different phases and will show how each of these will benefit from digitalization and why it is so important. 

    Automatic planning can help in FTTH to build future proof networks and to simulate different scenarios, which result in fewer modifications in the civil work phase. In addition, civil works become more accurate when there is more information in use through digitalization and highly detailed documentation improves the value of the network.  Finally, a complete project which demonstrates how digitalization changed and enhanced the process will be presented.
