LCC has designed more than 350 networks worldwide and has had a key role and impact on the field of network engineering. As the industry has changed with the introduction of new technologies and capabilities, LCC has adapted its practices to more efficiently design networks.

Outside Plant (OSP) Network Design

After many years of service with copper access networks, today’s cutting edgemodern communication services require robust new infrastructure including constructing core backbone fibers and metro fiber networks. To achieve the target high capacity fiber connections must be connected directly to the home and business customers’ premises (Fiber to the X.)

Modern Outside Plant solutions consist of products and services related to the passive part of a fiber or copper-based cable network infrastructure that provide connectivity between all active components involved in a network. Offering subscriber speeds up to Gigabits per second, an all fiber network promises high-speed data, voice, and video services, such as instant on demand high definition television (HDTV), HD video gaming and more.  Due to the competitive market conditions and vastly changing technologies, the FTTx providers need efficient optical connectivity to reach homes, businesses, and multiple dwelling units (MDUs), including those in previously hard-to-reach areas with reasonable costs.

The FTTx network has to be designed to serve several customer profiles in line with needs of minimal initial investment and maintenance cost. Our skilled engineers understand that there are a large number of different methods to design and build FTTx networks. Our expertise allows us to offer customizable methods to ensure our ability to meet customers’ expectations.

Depending on the customer’s needs, LCC can offer customizable methods for:

  • service provider business models (e.g. budgets, customer take rate, etc.)
  • local legal conditions (e.g. right of way, permits etc.),
  • local geographical conditions,
  • type of construction ( traditional trenching, modern trenching) equipment selection
