Several challenges stand on the path to 5G. Staffing issues, keeping budgets under control, faster deployments, cumbersome testing processes are just a few examples. The high density of fiber rollouts means relying on a lot of outsourcing, which can reduce visibility and control over the fiber infrastructure. At the same time, thorough knowledge of the network is key to guarantee the quality of service (QoS) delivered to subscribers, to accurately budget and plan for upcoming network transformations.

Achieving a decent return on investment (ROI) is the prime objective: both purchasing costs and overall cost of ownership must be considered when it comes to investing in test equipment. In addition, the challenge of dealing with decreasing expertise among frontline technicians implies hiring and training of people who are unfamiliar with fiber testing. 

This webinar explores a new simplified approach to testing which promises to overcome each of these challenges and ensure full fiber reliability and readiness for the next move.
