VALUE PROPOSITION LEVERAGING THE COPPER DISTRIBUTION ... Typical ADF Deployment In today’s market, service providers are under more pressure than ever to provision high-speed services faster and cheaper – or risk losing customers to their competitors. While ﬁber-to-the-home proves eﬀective for new developments, the copper distribution plant coupled with advancements in copper technologies such as vectoring continues to deliver faster competitive oﬀerings for triple-play in the midst of the cord-cutting trend. The copper plant can now be leveraged to extend services deeper, even in rural areas. The operational bottlenecks associated with turning up, testing, managing, and maintaining an increasing number of advanced services on the local copper infrastructure are driving the need to automate the last mile. COMPACT AND MODULAR ADFs Simpler Networks, the recognized technology leader in Automated Distribution Frame (ADF) solutions, introduces the EZ-EDGE, a family of compact ADFs that remotely activate cross connections in Remote Central Oﬃces (RCOs) and outdoor cabinets. Available in 50-line increments, the EZ-EDGE can be conﬁgured to enable ﬂow-through provisioning of small-capacity, pole-mounted xDSL platforms and can be sized up to accommodate the wide range of street cabinet and RCO connectivity needs. Simpler Networks’ products are based on patented miniature latching-relay technology that enable it to achieve the highest density ADFs in the world while delivering a non-blocking architecture that can provide years of remote service provisioning. Only a few mounting spaces are required in the cabinet. THE KEY BENEFITS VALUE PROPOSITION TYPICAL ADF APPLICATIONS - TWO EXAMPLES CABINET SERVING 600 LINES STREET CABINET EXAMPLE ONE 600 pairs ADF COPPER There are multiple access deployment strategies in play. They are driven by competitive environments, broadband services oﬀerings, time-to-market, cost constraints, etc. In all cases, the copper distribution is leveraged to ensure positioning for competitively responsive service delivery. Connection blocks only to terminate subscriber pairs (SUB) SPLITTER VDSL Voice Gateway EXAMPLE TWO SMALL SIZE REMOTE SERVING 50 LINES The next example shows a small size remote serving 50 lines (pole-mounted in rural areas for example). The local exchange remains and continues to provide POTS. Splitters added to the funnel allow for the remote activation of high-speed services such as VDSL and G.fast once requested. 50 pairs Many service providers are actually replacing their local exchanges with ﬁber-fed remotes which oﬀer the full suite of services. The following is an example of such a cabinet serving 600 lines. Simpler Networks' high-density ADF ﬁts into standard 19" or 23" central oﬃce equipment racks and most existing outdoor cabinets necessitating just a few mounting spaces. STREET CABINET ADF 50 pairs SPLITTER FEEDER LEX SUB VDSL/ G.fast THE BENEFITS : SIMPLY STATED CENTRALIZED OPERATIONS AND MANAGEMENT INTEGRATION The EZ-EDGE is easily managed locally and remotely via its SNMP interface. The EZ-EDGE can be integrated into SNMP-based management systems or via the EZ-FLOW Element Manager. The EZ-FLOW consolidates the operations of all EZ-EDGE deployed in a region. Flow-through provisioning can be easily accommodated via interface adaptation on EZ-FLOW. RECORDS ACCURACY Once in place, the EZ-EDGE ensures the access plant records are aligned with the ﬁeld. This translates into accurate billing, pro-active trouble shooting, elimination of false dispatch, and optimized utilization of VDSL resources. REDUCE GHG EMISSIONS ACCELERATED REVENUES ... and request for new services can be turned up faster for accelerated revenues and enhanced customer retention. FAST PROVISIONING Internet is the driver. VDSL service nodes are the norm being deployed ever closer to the curb, a cross connection truck roll away from service activation. The EZ-EDGE makes every VDSL service port available for remote activation in seconds eliminating truck rolls IMPROVED SERVICE RESPONSIVENESS The EZ-EDGE provides test access to remotely qualify client loops and trouble shooting for fast service delivery and repair actions. With EZ-EDGE the current work force will be able to turn up more services... The elimination of truck rolls contributes to Service Provider’s carbon footprint reduction goals.
