Three steps for simpler ultra-broadband evolution

Gigabit Smart Build provides a program management and governance framework that divides broadband evolution into three phases: prepare, deploy and operationalize.

1. Prepare: Get ready for gigabit

Gigabit Smart Build provides support that enables operators to maximize ROI by deploying ultra-broadband technologies at the right times and locations. This support focuses on helping operators manage the complexity and cost associated with the adoption of ultra-broadband technologies such as fiber and virtualization.

2. Deploy: Achieve fast, first-time-right evolution

Gigabit Smart Build helps operators reduce time to market by ensuring that they apply the right skills, tools and methodologies to the deployment process. It offers deployment support in several important areas, including customer self-installation technologies and network build control management.

3. Operationalize: Control and optimize upgrades and migration

Gigabit Smart Build operationalizes ultra-broadband deployments and turns them into revenue-generating services. This support focuses on enabling operators to migrate services flawlessly, execute smooth upgrades and leverage analysis to keep the network in shape. The service presents operators with several optimization options, including legacy broadband migration, network software upgrades, and network assessments and health checks.
