The talk will feature a case study for the Hartley Bay, B.C. First Nations Community where the team deployed a robust FTTx infrastructure and PON technology, to this remote area.


Joana Barbulescu, presenting @ BICSI 2017

The environmental and geographical challenges of deploying state-of-the-art FTTX infrastructure and GPON technology to a remote northern community, accessible only by boat and with no roads, were successfully met utilizing innovative pre-terminated infrastructure solutions, logistical planning and cost effective GPON technology. Traditional concepts were adjusted in order to deliver a functioning system to the client, with detailed handover documentation, and a review to ensure continued success managing and expanding the new network.

Hartley Bay, B.C., a coastal community  with a projected expansion of 100 homes, is located four hours by boat from Prince Rupert,  The goal of the town leadership was to improve the speed and QOS for community internet service; however, there was a lack of interest from existing service providers to upgrade infrastructure. The AxisTech team embraced the challenge, commenced with the design, and built during the summer of 2013.  Click Here for Full Case Study.
