The Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) will host a June webinar that will cover the various network architecture options for delivering fiber optic connectivity to the home for the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) Program.
The BEAD Program provides $42.45 billion to expand high-speed internet access by funding planning, infrastructure deployment, and adoption programs in all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. The program offers one of the most significant opportunities for states and network providers to work together to make broadband for everyone a reality.
The webinar will explore why different environments and housing densities will necessitate different fiber access network architectures, the details and benefits of those architectures, and other considerations to address deployment challenges given a constrained fiber-skilled labor pool. Attendees will learn about the various fiber broadband network architectures and common environmental and population density factors that will shape the best solutions for states to connect unserved and underserved regions of the country.
