Greywale Insights to Discuss the Economics of Virtual Broadband Networks at TIA2016
Will Discuss the Economic Impact of Virtual Access Networks (VAN)
By: Greywale Insights
The access network, or "last mile" is a challenging business. It has thousands of miles of facilities (wires) that radiate from headends and hubs and terminate in nearly every home and building in the serving area. It has specialized OSP (Outside Plant) electronics deployed in cabinets, underground vaults and mounted to utility poles. Adding to the challenges are onerous federal, state and local regulations that hinder flexibility. Then you have real operational challenges including lightning, floods, backhoe fades and squirrel chews.
"The virtual access network can't solve squirrel chews," Whelan continues, "but it will positively change the economics of access and benefit the entire broadband ecosystem."
