Listen to the Become Fiberminded Podcast!
Biweekly interviews, strategy, and advice around fiber optics.
Dodging the coax infrastructure in favor of FTTH XGS-PON is a bold move. Zachary is explaining in this interview how they are doing it and why they are so successful. Spoiler alert: They are using an unconventional fiber network architecture.
#9: Effective use of fiber cleaners and the myth of self-cleaning fiber connectors with Brian Teague
Proper fiber cleaning has one of the biggest influences on optical performance. So how do use these fiber cleaners? Do I always need to clean the fiber connector end face? Is a newly bought fiber patch cord clean or not?
#8: Faster internet speed through next-gen transmission technologies like 400G ZR+ and G.metro with Vincent Sleiffer
Nielsen’s law states that network connection speeds would increase 50% per year. How can the different parts of the network keep up with this trend and enable a faster internet speed for everyone? Vincent Sleiffer is discussing the next-gent transmission technologies.
Building and planning a small-scale fiber-optic network is no small feat. Jared Mauch is explaining in this episode his process in getting started and becoming his own fiber internet provider
Automated fiber planning is relying on clean input data. But how do we get there? What are ways to increase data accuracy and make better business decisions?
Changing the business model at a 180° angle is certainly challenging. We will go through the process and lessons learned when moving away from the wireless world to full fiber deployment.
