JULY 2017 | | BROADBAND COMMUNITIES | 81 Render predicted 2017 will set new records for fiber deployment in both the United States and Canada. LARGE FIBER COUNTS Kevin Bourg, optical network architect at Corning Optical Communications, said that increasing fiber counts by 15 or 20 percent will add only 5 percent to the cost of a network but will increase revenue potential by 15 to 50 percent and make software-defined access (SDA) faster, more capacious and more reliable – especially in networks served by NG-PON2 and the still-in-progress 100G-EPON, which promise to reassign wavelengths on the fly. Korea is using large fiber counts to densify its 4G cellular networks in preparation for 5G and for the Seoul Olympics, at which hundreds of thousands of attendees will be expected to livestream at once. e extra fiber goes mainly to small-cell hot spots. Bourg noted that businesses ask for redundancy, and if business managers worry about fiber cuts, they have to pay for the redundant infrastructure. Bourg said the Corning model can price out at $900 per home passed, plus $600 per home connected with a 1x64 split, deployed to 100,000 homes with a 40 percent take rate. NG-PON2, using all available wavelengths, is capable of 80 Gbps symmetrical speeds, so this type of deployment would give every home more than a gig. Annual number of homes marketed by type of provider. More than 1,000 smaller FTTH carriers are coming close to matching deployments by the major carriers.
