In a software-defined access network, virtualization makes G.fast deployments a whole lot simpler, quicker – and cheaper
G.fast is crucial for delivering ultra-broadband to more people. But a G.fast deployment brings new challenges: significantly more nodes, often in hard-to-reach locations, and sometimes without a power supply.
In this white paper, learn how virtualization, the software-defined access network, and Nokia Lightspan and Altiplano solutions remove complexity, cost and delays from a G.fast deployment.
- Pre-configured, plug and play G.fast nodes reduce errors, costs and time
- Zero-touch provisioning dynamically assigns IP addresses, upgrades software and auto-configures the node
- Auto-verification tests the installation and reports back to the technician
- Virtual Persistent Management Agent functionality means nodes can be configured even when powered down
