PRZOOM - /newswire/ - London, Greater London, United Kingdom, 2010/09/20 - With the EU Commission announcing today that all major telecoms companies must open up their fibre networks to rivals, mandatory open-access fibre infrastructure for new FTTH networks is becoming a reality for operators.

In order to move the telecoms industry forward and enable further growth, operators will be under increasing pressure to embrace this change in order to be seen as flexible and progressive. ADC believes that the physical infrastructure of FTTH networks will play a vital role in stimulating European economies, and meeting government targets for both access and speed.

The past few years have witnessed a significant investment in broadband, but this investment has been scattered. Whilst larger carriers have upgraded their equipment to offer ‘superfast’ broadband, smaller competitive carriers have started to deploy their own fibre networks in isolated communities, but this has led to a fragmented network. In order to bridge the digital divide, and as society become increasingly digital, everyone should be given the opportunity to be connected.

In com¬parison to major telcos that have deployed fibre in urban and sub¬urban areas, operators of rural networks typically have substantially fewer customers per square mile and broadband is limited, and of low capacity or quality. Rural areas are being by-passed with their lower subscription base making the cost of roll-out very high for smaller carriers or municipalities, and unattractive to larger operators. But if the physical layer of these networks was carefully planned, and the cost shared between all operators then this network infrastructure could support lower subscriber densities, offering more advanced services to all and a solid base for sustainable economic growth.

Another option might be a pay-as-you-grow approach that initially brings fiber to a neighbour¬hood node, connecting individual customers to the node only when they subscribe to higher-bandwidth data or video services. For everyone has a responsibility for the development of broadband - IT users, market players and the public sector.

A thoughtfully designed and future-proofed fibre infrastructure is key to economic growth, but ADC (adc.com) would urge the EU Commission to consider how the cost of initial deployment, on-going maintenance and inevitable upgrades to networks will be implemented to make it fair on both the larger players who have opened up their networks, as well as the smaller players.

With speed no longer a differentiator, it will be interesting to see what points of difference will set one player apart from another. If they are pushed to provide improved services and a better level of customer service, then end-users will reap the rewards.

By sharing resources, power consumption and maintenance costs can be reduced, whilst at the same time customer revenues and service levels increased – so freeing up resources for continued innovation.
