FTTH Council APAC: estimation of total bandwidth and number of fibre
In this white paper, we present a model that estimates the bandwidth and the number of fibers required to support applications at a high data rate in passive optical network (PON)
The average bandwidth required per user depends on guaranteed grade of service (for which assured bandwidth is made available), application, and the selection of technology (point-to-point or point-to-multipoint). In addition, the fiber count is also clearly a function of user density. Therefore, it is important to consider appropriate fiber count at a green field deployment stage, taking into account the expected growth in the number of applications, bandwidths required in the future applications and the number of users.
