The FTTH MENA Market Panorama is a study conducted in 2017 by FTTH Council MENA and its partner IDATE to provide a complete summary of the FTTH/FTTB status in the MENA region, including the analysis of 17 MENA countries; distinction between architecture: FTTH/B vs FTTN (FTTN/C+VDSL, FTTLA, FTTx+LAN) and information on the national Broadband market e.g. national program.

It was released by the Fibre to the Home (FTTH) Council MENA, in partnership with IDATE Consulting, during its 9th annual conference, “FTTH, EMPOWERING THE DIGITAL VISION”, held under the Patronage of the Ministry of Communication Technolgies and Digital Economy of Tunisia.

<![CDATA[Register for our webinar 'FTTH/B in a Virtualized & Software Defined Network'!]]> http://milan.ftthcouncil.eu/home/latest-news/register-for-our-webinar-ftth/b-in-a-virtualized-software-defined-network!?news_id=3795 2017-11-24 This webinar will provide an overview of the SDN/NFV in the context of FTTH/FTTB-based access solutions, and introduce several interesting Use Cases.

With the proliferation of FTTH deployments and the new next Generation with ultra-band capacity, service providers are facing the opportunity to simplify network architectures by making them more efficient, agile and flexible in order to meet the challenges of huge user bandwidth demands.  

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) in conjunction with fibre deployments are the most important key enablers for Access Network Evolution and key instruments to lower the network’s total cost-of-ownership, in terms of the middle-term or long-term planning.  

Taking advantage from the High Bandwidth and symmetry that FTTH deployments permits, it is possible to move critical functions to cloud to allow multivendor network management, accelerate new service activation, scale from small to very large access nodes and consequently reduce CAPEX and OPEX.
