Infrastructure Assumptions

The infrastructure selection refers to fiber extension part of the network that will be implemented using a combination of E-band and V-band radios. The mmWave links are used to extend the existing fiber network (which is not a part of this business case). The installation cost assume a ‘project’ approach and not a single link installation cost.

In-Building Parameters to Consider

The model assumes that the service provider will take advantage of the existing wiring in the building and won’t rewire the building from scratch. G.fast technology is the simplest solution to connect the units.

The in-building parameters are self-explanatory and based on today’s industry practice.
