The Fiber Frontier (2016)

By Dr. Robert L. Howald, Comcast

This paper will take a look at how the various stakeholders of one major US operator defined the network evolution problem statement with a long term quantified perspective, determined a vision forward, and developed a plan to deliver on this vision. We will discuss and enumerate some of the assumptions, levers, compromises, platforms, and customer objectives driving the recommendations. We will consider alternative scenarios and reflect on the deviations this may cause in a long-term plan. Finally, we will postulate long term states of services and architecture, and discuss heavyhitting variables and their potential impact. In short, we will provide an example template for the Fiber Frontier, with an eye towards investment criteria, practical change, and customer experiences.
