Versant Solutions Group to showcase how NetVersant Design empowers network operators to “build the right network, in the right place, at the right time, for the right cost”.
June 29, 2021
Markham, Ontario -- Versant Solutions Group will feature the power of NetVersant Design to accelerate the deployment of fiber access networks at the Fiber Connect 2021 Conference & Exhibition taking place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, Nashville, TN from July 25-28, 2021.
NetVersant Design delivers significant time and cost savings to network operators by harnessing the power of advanced computing technologies, including machine learning and AI to automate the bulk of the network design process while maximizing the effectiveness of their valuable planners and engineers.
"Tom Rutledge, CEO of Charter Communications, said at a May 12 investor conference that rural broadband build-out is not going to be easy, even after Charter won $1.2 billion in December in Phase I of the FCC’s Rural Digital Opportunity Fund auction meant to bulk up broadband deployment across 24 states.
“Physically getting it done is a big deal,” Rutledge said. “Getting a labor force in the markets where we’re going to be is going to be difficult. The skill sets don’t exist.”
“Clearing the poles and getting make-ready done is actually a big deal because the utility companies that exist in the rural areas don’t have the staff or the capabilities to get the work done,” he added. “And so, it’s going to take time to build it out."1
NetVersant Design brings the speed, optimization and strategic insights that will be crucial to operators in meeting the demands and volume of work in FTTH network deployments, such as the FCC’s Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF)and the CRTC’s Universal Broadband Fund.
Versant will be sharing booth #539 with their industry partner, Synchronoss Technologies (www.synchronoss.com). Integration with Synchronoss’ spatialSUITE network asset management platform makes NetVersant Design even more powerful.
