In today’s market, service providers are under more pressure than ever to provision high-speed services faster and cheaper or risk losing customers to their competitors. While fiber to the home proves effective for new developments, the copper distribution plant coupled developments, the copper distribution plant coupled with advancements such as vectoring and G.fast can offer broadband speeds of up to 1GBPS and deliver a highly competitive triple play offering in the midst of the cord-cutting trend. The copper plant can now be leveraged to extend services deeper, even in rural areas. The operational bottlenecks associated with turning up, testing, managing, and maintaining an increasing number of nodes and services on the local copper infrastructure are driving the need to automate the provisioning process.
Simpler Networks’ products are designed using patented miniature latching-relay technology that can achieve the industry’s highest density ADFs while delivering a non-blocking architecture that can provide years of remote zero-touch provisioning
