Comparative Techno economic Evaluation of LTE Fixed Wireless Access and FTTdp G fast Network Deployment for Providing Broadband Services of at Least 30Mbps in Rural Areas

In rural areas in Europe, the deployment of High-Speed Broadband access networks lags behind in urban and suburban areas due to difficulties of deployment of fiber in the final meters. FTTdp networks using G.fast have been proposed as a cost-effective alternative to FTTH and FTTB [1] especially in rural areas [2] where FTTC and VDSL cannot always deliver service speeds of 30Mbps which is the minimum bandwidth defined in the European Digital Agenda as target to be met by 2020. However, fixed wireless access (FWA) networks based on LTE technology can be used as a "last mile" solution to provide high-speed broadband access to areas where fixed broadband is limited [3]-[5]. On the other hand, LTE technology offers high speed connections able to support internet browsing and IP services, while it can theoretically support up to 300 Mbps depending on network load and sharing. Thus, it can be considered as a true alternative to any fixed solution. In this paper, a techno-economic study is performed to assess the feasibility of a FWA network deployment based on LTE technology in comparison to FTTdp G.fast network rollout for delivering service speeds of 30Mbps in rural areas. We present cash flow results and standard financial indexes for the business cases discussed. The results are being appraised through a sensitivity and risk analysis to determine the most influential factors on the return on the investment. We also discuss the (non) profitability of both cases and the subsidization needed from structural funds. The results aim to contribute in the debate over network evolution scenarios among academia, industry, regulators, policy makers and governments.

The business of telecommunications is currently undergoing a period of change driven by changes in regulation, increasing demands for services and the development of new access technologies. The market structure of telecommunications is evolving rapidly as new players entering the market and existing players strive to complete in an increasingly volatile market. Moreover the advent of new data services is placing greater demands on the network as operators strive to offer new broadband services. Underpinning much of this change is the access technology itself, both in the transitional form of copper twisted pairs, but increasing through the use of new fibre, radio and copper systems. Indeed the dominant cost of most telecommunication network is the access network itself and typically can demand up to 80% of the total investment required. The book presents an overview of the access network and discusses the technologies that are available. It begins with an introductory chapter defining terms and technologies and goes on to discuss each technology in turn, not only from a technology viewpoint but with a view on how it might be best deployed. Chapters are also included on planning systems and network management, a key aspect of the technology.

Broadband networks, such as asynchronous transfer mode (ATM), frame relay, and leased lines, allow us to easily access multimedia services (data, voice, and video) in one package. Exploring why broadband networks are important in modern-day telecommunications, Introduction to Broadband Communication Systems covers the concepts and components of both standard and emerging broadband communication network systems. After introducing the fundamental concepts of broadband communication systems, the book discusses Internet-based networks, such as intranets and extranets. It then addresses the networking technologies of X.25 and frame relay, fiber channels, a synchronous optical network (SONET), a virtual private network (VPN), an integrated service digital network (ISDN), broadband ISDN (B-ISDN), and ATM. The authors also cover access networks, including digital subscriber lines (DSL), cable modems, and passive optical networks, as well as explore wireless networks, such as wireless data services, personal communications services (PCS), and satellite communications. The book concludes with chapters on network management, network security, and network testing, fault tolerance, and analysis. With up-to-date, detailed information on the state-of-the-art technology in broadband communication systems, this resource illustrates how some networks have the potential of eventually replacing traditional dial-up Internet. Requiring only a general knowledge of communication systems theory, the text is suitable for a one- or two-semester course for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in engineering as well as for short seminars on broadband communication systems.

Broadband wireless access is the third wireless revolution, after cellphones (1990s) and Wi-Fi (2000s). It is viewed by many carriers and cable operators as a disruptive technology and rightly so. The broadcast nature of wireless transmission offers ubiquity and immediate access for both fixed and mobile users. Unlike wired access (copper, coax, fiber), a large portion of the deployment costs is incurred only when a subscriber signs up for service. The U.S. is poised to exploit new wireless access technologies capable of pervasive high-speed connectivity despite lagging behind developed Asian countries in broadband access deployment for many years.All in a Broadband Wireless Access Network is a workbook designed to fill the need for a comprehensive yet compact and easy-to-use reference, specifically for anyone who wish to study the principles underpinning many promising wireless access solutions. It provides a comparative assessment of the key issues and technologies such as 802.16 (Wi-Max), long-range/multihop 802.11 (Wi-Fi), wireless DOCSIS, 3G/4G, 802.20 (mobile broadband) and the emerging 802.22 (wireless regional area networks) standard. The workbooks unique teaching style sets itself apart from other books. Quantitative concepts are explained visually while the bullet text brings out the key ideas in a manner that is self-contained, concise, and to the point. Whether you are an ambitious entrepreneur, a CTO, a business executive or a scientist, you will discover that the thought-provoking exercises at the end of the book not only help you master the subject but also serve as a rich source of interesting ideas. A companion website is available exclusively for users of this book, providing updates, related websites, and additional learning resources and supplements, including an on-demand training CD.The workbook provides valuable insights on a broad range of topics:* Licensed and unlicensed spectrum consideration* Reliable physical layer transmission using multiple antennas * Multichannel medium access protocols with QoS provisioning* Wireless access topologies: point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, peer-to-peer multihop (mesh)* Wireless multimedia services: wireless IP-TV, wireless VoIP* Cognitive radio technologies* Advanced wireless security*Wireless/wireline integrationBenny Bing is a research faculty member with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), USA.
