Re: [AFMUG] Outdoor PON OLT$100/house for AE

You pay for the splitters that fit the cabinet and cross box.  Some cost more 
than others depending on the sheet metal.

Chuck,

What would you house total be for AE?  Also $900 for 1x32 splitter, you need to 
find a better vendor.  The bare end PLC's are $14 the fancy connectorized ones 
are $40 at fs.com.  $11K for a 8 port card and $845 for a Laser, that's why we 
didn't/couldn't go with calix.
That $120.67 should be about $40-$50.

      Chuck,

      Dug up some of my costs on the GPON.  One port with a C+ class laser and 
a 1x32 splitter cost me about $1000.


      So if I stick with my 50% utilization numbers, that gets me about $62 per 
user.  Plus an indoor ONT gets me about $200-$225 per customer for electronics. 
 As I increase my utilization, the numbers get better.  But, we are only 
talking a different in a few months on the ROI.  Remember we are debating 
fiber.  I have ONT's out there over 72 months old.  I'm sure Chuck has some at 
least 2 or 3 years older than that.  I don't plan on any type of major upgrade 
for several years.

      But I must stress there is no right answer.  AE vs GPON.  You need to 
make sure you fully understand both options before making a decision.  Not to 
mention, you can run both.  We are setup to do AE,  We currently have 2 
customers on the AE side for various reasons vs 2500 on the GPON side.

                  Adam,

                  There are some ranging things you have to consider.  "The 
requirement
                  when deploying ONTs are the maximum distance between two ONTs 
cannot
                  exceed 20Km."

                  The way we have done this is to reuse fibers as we travel 
down long stretches of roads between neighborhoods.

                  We will deploy a 1x32 splitter in the field. We will splice 
that into the last 3 ribbons/tubes of our fiber.  Example, if we were using a 
144 count cable, ribbons 10-12 will be spliced into.  After a few miles 
depending on density or distance, we will splice in another 1x32 splitter to 
ribbons 10-12.  We just keep doing this until we run out of light budget.  

                  We build to the lots passed, so we are not trying to optimize 
max usage per port.  Currently, we average about 50% utilization on our ports.

                        I was figuring on several small splitters along the 
route.  I didn't compare to a 1x32 in the cabinet because I figured if I 
brought every fiber back to the cabinet then I didn't save anything versus 
ethernet.

                              How far are you going?  We are pushing almost 20 
miles on a 1x32 split.  Are you using one 1x32 or multiple smaller splitters?

                                 I'm looking at rural areas (like a few houses 
per mile).  As I'm looking at hypothetical power budgets for PON, I'm finding 
that if I run the line down the road and put splitters on the pole I can split 
5-6 times and then I'm getting too low on db to keep going down the road.  At 5 
or so houses per port, a 1U, 8 port ONT is no denser than a 1U switch.

                                Your stated reasons for PON are all correct.  
The numbers just aren't seeming to work out for me.

                                I also figure if I install enough fibers for 
AE, I can still switch to PON some day if I want to.

                                We would never max out the PON port, but 
looking back on the past 15 years of growth in consumption I wonder if I should 
ever say "never". In AE I can put 100Gig in every house if I have to.  I'll 
"never" have to do that as far as I can imagine, but my imagination could be 
limited.

                                 A few reasons...

                                Port cost is still fairly high.

                                More splicing.

                                More fiber required.

                                Larger chassis required.

                                More power required.

                                More battery backup required.

                                Consumers not even close to using up 1-2 
generations back of PON capacity in most places.
