Navigating the Challenges of Last Mile FTTx Installs, Activations and Repairs: What You Need to Know

With FTTx deployments on the rise, sooner or later all last mile technicians and contractors will have to deal with PON. Demand for FTTx services is increasing pressure to do more installs and activations per day, and to ensure those activations happen successfully at the first visit with less repeats. In addition, ongoing evolution towards 10G PON (like XGS-PON) will bring many new opportunities but also new challenges.

Over a 3-part webinar series, VIAVI Solutions will guide you through the key essential tests required for successful installation, service activation and maintenance.

Webinar #1: How to get last mile FTTx installs right first time and be ready for migration to 10G PON

This session will examine how coexistence of services can impact the simple task of power level measurement and why using a broadband power meter can lead to failed installs. Plus, learn how a simple test can prove you have the correct fiber drop to ensure first time install success.
