Session Title:      Workforce Development & Supply Chain

Enabling the fast, consistent, and accurate deployment of networks requires a complete life-cycle solution – a solution that addresses the key infrastructure deployment challenges. As we enter a period of unprecedented broadband network deployment, we face significant challenges in the supply chain and labor market. The construction industry has lagged many others in leveraging technology to improve efficiency and accuracy.

It is estimated that over $500B is spent globally on rework – over 50% caused by poor, inconsistent data and communication. On average large deployments overrun the budget by 80% and the average delay for construction projects can be on the order of 20 months or more. Now, more than ever, it is critical that a full end-to-end solution be embraced to enable network deployment. An ecosystem of tools is coming into existence that can be woven together into an optimized solution to address everything from manufacturing to network turnup and activation.

This panel brings together experts from the construction SaaS-based ecosystem (Vitruvi and ECSite) with the leader of a construction services organization (Spligitty) to discuss how construction digitation can aid in addressing many of the challenges and inefficiencies in the deployment of optical networks.
