Paper Abstract

A study is currently underway in Telecom Corporation of New Zealand (TCNZ) on the economics of providing telephony and entertainment video services to residential and small business customers via a Passive Optical Network (PON). It investigates the installed first costs, life-cycle costs, cost trends and possible timings for deployment of FITL systems in New Zealand. In this study, two variants of PON, Fiber To The Curb (FTTC) and Fiber To The Home (FTTH), are compared with a copper cable network for services and costs. The paper describes the architectures, methodology, modeling techniques, results and conclusions of the study.
