What are the Key Success Factors for viable and enticing FTTH deployment in Europe?
B2 and Bostream: FTTH since 1999 150+ Local FTTH networks
Dispersed market with over 410 FTTxprojects
14 FTTH projects done mostly by local utilities
KPN : FTTx projects 40 Local FTTH projects
SFR, Free, Orange, Noos: 22 FTTB/H public projects
Fastweb: FTTH since 1999 Telecom Italia: FTTB/C
The development of FTTH in each European country Depends on:
FTTx deployments in Europe as of October 2010 shows that the FTTH market in Europe continues to grow
Passive Optical Network Architecture
Home Run Fiber Architecture
Owns the passive layer. A private company opereates the active layer and resells dark fiber and capacity to service providers
Owns and operates the nework and resell capacity to service providers
Owns, operates and provide services over the network
Financing Network Deployment strategy
Municipalities and local authorities
Government strategic orientation
French regulation and investment
Broadband Action Plan
The involvement of the government and public authorities could have a strong leverage effect for the deployment of FTTH under OAN model
Several countries presented a government involvement under national broadband strategies or specific regulations
Municipalities and utilities are still the main category of players involved in FTTH deployments in Europe as they represent 58% of total number of
Speeds and scope of FTTH deployments closely linked with regional authorities’ involvement.
Utility’s image and credibility facilitating the commercialisation among the end users
Open Access Network‘s Organisation
Equal conditions access to the broadband telecoms network
Choice and creation of the carriers’ carrier
Open Access can help alleviate specific barriers to develop FTTH, increasing competition, reducing costs and allowing public authorities to operate into the telecom market
Open Acces and FTTH
Methodsused to enable OpenAccess for FTTH
Methods employed will vary from country to country, regulator to regulator as local market conditions are taken into account.
Open Access methods into two main groups, service access and fiber access.
A wholesale service offered by the infrastructure provider whereby the competitive provider has no equipment co located with the infrastructure provider but the customers will have access to their content and services via the fiber access network.
Awholesale service whereby the CP will co-locate network elements at some point in the fibre access network. This could be at the CO or further towards the customer premises.
OPEN ACCESS refers to the situation where multiple retail service providers may use the FTTH
Network on an equable base by connecting at a packet layer interface and compete to offer their
Services to end users
Some incumbents promote Open Access for their deployment, with or without specific regulation, principally for the high revenue from the leasing of the fibers but also to become a key infrastructure provider
Between 100 and 1000 HH
Nobody can deploy the fiber without Orange. But no more that Orange can make it alone.
