Accelerating FTTx rollouts while reducing costs - utopia or reality? 


Michael Zartenar

Applications Engineer

Michael Zartenar currently holds the position of Applications Engineer with EXFO, focusing on test and measurement in the physical layer and giving support and technical advice to EXFO’s customers.

He joined the company in June 2020 and is part of EXFO’s initiative to increase its activity in Germany and the DACH region.

Michael holds a Master’s Degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the Technical University of Munich.

Please note, this webinar will be presented in German.

FTTx rollouts are in full swing in Europe’s German-speaking countries. The number of FTTH connections has ramped up hugely in the last 2 years. However, due to the shortage of skilled workers, there is also a growing awareness of the need to boost the efficiency of network installations by accelerating rollouts while simultaneously minimizing costs.  

This webinar explores three novel approaches to achieve cost-effective efficiency:

  • Centralized testing leveraging OTDR technology for a more managed, yet largely autonomous, automated deployment and continuous 24/7 monitoring.  
  • Automation of on-site acceptance measurement. Acceleration of network availability through the validation of network construction progress and quality in real time with the aim of earlier commissioning. All in all, this leads to just-in-time billing. 
  • Optical fiber multimeter at work during FTTx installation. This equips technicians in the final construction phase with a simple, fast analysis method to increase quality while avoiding repeat truck rolls or escalating promptly to second-level technicians in the event of a fault.
