Estimating FttH and FttCurb deployment costs using geometric models with enhanced parameters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingAcademicpeer-review


The need for higher bandwidth by customers urges the network providers to upgrade their networks. Fibre to the home or Fibre to the curb are two of the scenarios that are considered. To make a proper assessment on the economic viability, a good estimation of the roll-out costs of the networks are important. Geometric models are easy to use for this estimation, but can be inaccurate. In this paper a new method to enhance the parameters of the geometric model is presented. The performance of this method is shown in comparison with geographic models on real cases both for Fibre to the Home as for Fibre to the Curb.
