Fiber To Feeder Design Study (1991)

By John A. Mattson, Scientific-Atlanta

The Fiber-To-Feeder (FTF) design approach is analyzed in comparison to tree-and-branch design for rebuilds. Data from numerous design studies is used to develop a "typical" FTF design. Total material cost is compared using several alternative FTF design approaches, and an optimal solution, known as Fiber to the Serving Area (FSA) is recommended. System performance and material costs are compared to conventional designs for varying plant densities. Additional benefits of FSA design are also discussed, including improved picture quality, increased reliability, reduced operating costs, and more compatibility with future services.
