INTERCONNECTIONS IN THE CITY OF ZURICH
 Jacques Robadey, Head of Strategy & Business Development, EWZ Telecom, Switzerland
The Zürich city FTTH Project including goals, open access business model and construction partnership between legacy operator and power utility is described. The main challenge is a full coverage rollout and minimizing construction costs. Interconnecting legacy operator and power utility networks opens the door to synergies, but also to complexity. Interconnecting the city of Zürich with Partner cities opens new opportunities for Service Providers and End customers.

Solution H&S
Aleksandar Opacic, Standardisation Manager, Huber+Suhner AG, Switzerland
The main problem for the fibre optic component manufacturer is to develop products complying with particular requirements of network provider, subscriber and international standards. Fiber optic products considering reliability, cleanliness and safety with reduced complexity as well as realised in the system plug and play solution for homes and central offices are expected in the current and future FTTH deployment.

FTTH COMPLEXITY AS A CHALLENGE
Martin Kellenberger, R&M, Swtizerland
The network operators need new ideas for efficient and flexible development and management for future oriented fiber optic infrastructures. The R&M Fox's system enables network operators to combine and expand architectures and technologies from today and tomorrow. A modular, flexible design, multi-functional components, fast and time-saving installation are key factors for security without limits.
