Timing The Infrastructure Investment in Next-Generation Access Networks


In this report, we investigate how the choice of network architecture and the strategic timing of the infrastructure deployment might affect the network operator’s ability to win and retain market share.

Timing the infrastructure investment in next-generation access, written by Herman Wagter, examines parallel business models for three different NGA deployment scenarios: one where FTTC is deployed then FTTH, one where FTTH is deployed immediately, and one where FTTC and FTTH are deployed in parallel. The models detail how the financials stack up and compare, and the market positions that are at risk in all three scenarios.
