With C-RAN deployments gaining momentum and 5G on the horizon, fiber is being recognized as a strategic asset to support wireless cell densification. Large incumbent service providers have both wireline and wireless operations, so converging the traffic onto a single access network and maximizing asset utilization makes excellent business sense. For smaller operators, addressing multiple market segments with multi-use FTTH network limits their risks and maximizes the return on investment.
