FTTH can change society for the better. This is true worldwide. For Poland in particular FTTH offers a big opportunity for its citizens. Poland is at the crossroads when it comes to fibre access infrastructure investments, and it is in need of some valuable insights to put everything into perspective.
This workshop, consisting of three parts - business, technology, regulations - is the result of numerous discussions on how the whole process of planning, designing and building a FTTH network should function. To allow participants to benefit fully, this workshop will look at real Polish case studies, focussing particularly on implementation, best practices and Polish regulations and law.
The workshop will provide insights from Wavin-Arot, Cisco, Corning, gabocom , KPMG, MAC, MIR, MPWiK Krakow, Orange, Suntech, Technitel, and UKE.

Virtually all operators recognise the need to increase the bandwidth they can offer their end customers and fibre deployment of some form is accepted as a key part of such a strategy. Frequently the benefits of optimised network planning, in-field design validation and efficient deployment are often left unexplored due to timing or budget constraints. As a result operators risk overspending on CapEx and OpEx.
This workshop will show network operators how to increase operational efficiencies and at the same time avoid some of the pitfalls of FTTx deployments. We will take the audience on a journey through the whole planning, design and deployment process up to the documentation of the network. Different roles will be covered by the different speakers: from business decision maker to field survey engineer. We will quantify the benefits of making the best financial and operational decisions at each step in the process.
Part of the workshop will include global examples including a local case from Poland.

Room WS7

13:00-14:30

Session 1: Preparing the roll-out: from strategic business planning to high-level planning and project setup

This session will guide the audience through the first steps of the planning process. After introducing our virtual operator we will walk through the initial strategic decision-making process, demonstrating how different options can be evaluated and the right choices made. Once decided on where and how to deploy the FTTx network, we will set up the project plan to ensure optimal quality and performance are maintained throughout the project.
-Building the business case – Understanding the big numbers: CapEx, OpEx and potential revenues and building a solid business case
-Strategic Planning– Diving into more details to make the right choices about technical scenarios, coverage and roll-out timing to ensure a maximum Return on Investment for your FTTx Network
-Project planning – How to ensure a successful network rollout through optimised project planning and set-up

Session 2: Rolling-out the Network - from Network Design and Field Verification to Network Construction and Documentation

This session will develop the strategic proposal and continue to guide the audience through the next major steps of the FTTx design process. It will cover the creation of detailed engineering designs and how to manage the build process, including the performance of external contractors. Finally we will show how as-built changes in the field can be returned efficiently to the office, thus ensuring accurate network records.
-Initial Design – How to minimise deployment costs by optimising network design choices to create the optimum deployment architecture
-Field verification and detailed design – How to efficiently verify an optimised to-build plan to ensure it can be realisable in the field
-Project management - How to efficiently manage and monitor the network construction, including the management of both internal and external resources
-As-Built documentation – How to minimise time from built complete to inventory complete whilst maximising the quality of the inventory

This workshop combines learning directly from people that have built leading FTTH networks in different territories and circumstances. You will hear from the insiders responsible for planning, deploying and running networks ranging from incumbents to alternative operators, from electricity companies to wastewater companies, from Kazakhstan to the Caribbean.
These sessions will be thought provoking, practical and designed to bring out discussion with the audience. 
The workshop will be split into two sessions.

Room WS8

13:00-15:00

Session 1

Richard Jones will discuss business models that work (and those that don’t) based on experience from being lead consultant to many world-class FTTH networks including a ‘mini’ NBN and the World’s first ‘gigabit everywhere’ incumbent.  It will also include learning from Ventura’s start-up in Sweden that was ranked number 4 in the World for broadband service value and was eventually sold to TeliaSonera for 60m Euros in 2014, and our latest network we are running that is offering probably the first Gigabit residential broadband in all of Africa.

Session 2

Roland Montagne has perhaps the best vision of the global FTTH market and his session will look at the most advanced FTTH and FTTx markets Worldwide with a focus in Europe during a panel. He will be joined by guests from operators and countries experts to learn directly about their success and hurdles. This session will include input from local bodies in France deeply involved in FTTH, the successful rollout of Telefónica in Spain and where they are today. It will also discuss the case of Swedish FTTH players who were pioneers in FTTH/B rollouts. Finally there will be the case of Portugal, counting today with more than 90% of homes covered with FTTH.

This workshop will be an exciting, interactive experience for attendees, moving between three practical labs (training, test and measurement, and connectivity) with short presentations and interactive hands-on practical opportunities.

Room WS5

13:00-17:30

Training

The challenges that modern FTTH networks present can often lead to poorly installed cables, plant and equipment resulting in reduced network performance and lifespan. New splitter housings and closures offer new challenges including high density optical distribution frames and associated plant to even the most experienced cabling engineers and modern delivery methods such as sub-duct monobore and micro-ducted air blown fibre networks are common in FTTH deployments.

13:00-17:30

Test & Measurement

Testing strategies have been at the heart of most FTTH network deployments. During this practical workshop you’ll explore industry best practice and see how solutions and associated procedures can be used to gain efficiencies by engineers, even if they don’t have fibre test experience. The session will focus on sharing experience and addressing the key test challenges experienced through a FTTH deployment cycle (network build, activation and troubleshooting).
The methods and procedures that will be demonstrated have been derived to allow FTTH networks to be built and activated right first time, thus avoiding expensive and time consuming repeated truck rolls.
For the trouble shooting element the challenge is all about reducing time to repair so we will focus on identifying the location and cause of faults (dirty connectors, fibre bending, out of spec splices, fibre breaks, etc.) and advising on practical the action that engineers can take to remedy the faults.
In most case the job’s not done until a positive test report is created and sent back. You’ll gain an appreciation of the relevant standards, suitable pass-fail thresholds and see how reports can be automatically generated and uploaded.
Having taken the work shop you’ll see first-hand the importance of fibre cleanliness and inspection and see how the process can be fully automated, standardised and made repeatable, removing the any subjectivity from the process and eliminate false positives. You’ll understand how to test through optical splitters accurately, even if they’re cascaded and understand how to test the FTTH network while it’s live…. plus much more!

"Smart City" has become a widely used term. Calling a city "smart" might make a difference in terms of marketing, but it doesn’t make the city smart. Good basic conditions must first be in place. This of course starts with a high-quality basic ICT infrastructure. However, the infrastructure alone does not dictate the smartness of a city. Turning a city into a truly smart one means following different approaches and defining tailor-made solutions to real goals, depending on the individual challenges the city is facing.
Once the city council and the "Smart Team" have defined the goals for the city, transformation can start. Not by leaping into operational chaos with one pilot project after another, but by starting the activities and services that add real value and contribute to the cause, and by never losing sight of the financial implications.
The scope of this workshop is to discuss and define the process that leads to a meaningful Smart City, which will involve working on a real case study.

Inclusion of Smart City People from the Perspective of a Media Company

Traditional media giants are threatened by digitalization; on the other hand Smart Cities create completely new opportunities for these companies in which they can use their core competences and new technologies to be successful. Smart Cities are not only about technology; a key success factor is to include the public in the process. Positively exploiting these forces could be a natural role for media companies.

This workshop will be split into two separate parts.
The morning session is an introduction into FTTH, exploring the drivers, technologies and business models. This session will be held entirely in Polish language (translation to English will be available).
In the afternoon, the workshop will give an update on the foundation for FTTH deployments: transmission technologies and fibre optics:
The commonly used technologies for FTTH and FTTB, for both passive and active infrastructure have been mature and cost-effective for many years. The rapidly growing bitrate requirements, however, need a continuous evolution of technologies to increase speeds while maintaining and even improving cost of the active and passive components.
After an overview of bitrate drivers and the technologies used for the active and passive layers of the access network we will explore novel technologies for high-speed in-house transmission (e.g. G.fast), provide an update on the latest FTTH access technologies (NG-PON), and their introduction scenarios.
We will explore in detail the aspects of operation and maintenance of FTTH networks and look at the latest innovations in fibre optics and passive infrastructure deployment.
As broadband networks do not only consist of the access segment we will also look deeper into the network, into the aggregation and service delivery parts which are the domain of the Broadband Forum.
