Deploying FTTH in rural areas is not trivial due to high initial capital expenditures, which are caused by low density of end-users and lack of telecommunication infrastructure in rural areas. In this paper, we propose a specialized model devoted to rural FTTH planning, and we minimize initial investment cost by performing an accurate fibre network planning… CONTINUE READING
