Problem Solving in Practice

CASE STUDY #1

GRANT COUNTY PUD

Public Municipal Electric Provider Size of Project: 15,000 HHP, 300 fiber plant miles, $25M Architecture

Cisco P2P Design: Home Run to CO

Date Completion: Ongoing (project continues to expand)

The Grant County Public Utility District continues to deploy its Fiber-to-the-Home project throughout Grant County Washington. Grant County PUD was one of the early FTTH projects to be deployed and is currently in the second phase of connecting its residents and businesses. The Grant County PUD project is an open access, point-to-point network with multiple service providers.

THE PROBLEM

Grant County PUD's system needed to serve five small cities separated by rocky and difficult terrain located in rural Washington State.

DEVELOPMENT

Grant County PUD was one of the early FTTH projects to be deployed and is a very hands-on client. In an effort to better support the project, AEG has dedicated on-site field and engineering teams to ensure construction and design issues are addressed as quickly as possible.

THE RESULTS

The first phase of the project was completed in October of 2010, the second phase was completed at the beginning of 2013, and the third phase is well underway.

CASE STUDY #2

OPELIKA LIGHT & POWER

Public Municipal Electric Provider Size of Project: 13,200 HHP, 250 Fiber Plant Miles, $6M Architecture

GPON Design: FTTH LCP Design

Date Completion: Completed in 2013

Opelika Light and Power (OLP), a municipal utility and department of the City of Opelika, Alabama, chose Atlantic to install a Fiber-to-the-Home network. This network is capable of providing advanced smart-grid services to the utility and triple-play services to the community. These services include, but are not limited to, SCADA communications, automatic meter reading, power outage detection, automated distribution, load control, demand response, real-time data collection, remote connect/disconnect, and prepaid services.

THE PROBLEM

OLP wanted a large system that was targeted to pass all of its residents (13,000+) and the system needed to be as future-proof as possible, allowing them to upgrade as needed.

DEVELOPMENT

We designed a FTTH system for OLP that created as little disruption for its residents as possible. We utilized existing utility infrastructure and systems.

THE RESULTS

The network covers 250 miles of plant and passes 13,000 homes. The project was completed in just under two years and within budget. The project is now complete and OPS is delivering services to its residents.
