Last-mile fiber optic deployments: Software to support technicians in the field
The United States faces significant challenges in terms of its connectivity infrastructure, with a substantial portion of households still lacking internet access. To address this issue, the American Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Plan has been enacted, allocating $100 billion to enhance the country's digital infrastructure, particularly by expanding last-mile fiber optic connectivity.
However, as these initiatives progress, it is crucial to prioritize the safety and support of field teams responsible for implementing these projects, considering the demanding nature of their work, potential risks, and existing talent shortages.
Protecting and empowering these individuals becomes essential to achieve the ambitious connectivity goals set by the nation. Praxedo, along with telecommunications analyst Tim McElgunn, explores industry best practices and research to shed light on this matter.
