Contactless Fibre Delivery

Covid has brought many challenges to jobs. One industry that has been hit particularly hard is the service industry. Most people were not willing to have someone in their home, especially for any prolonged period. Fibre Optic deployment is no different. FTTH/FTTx were especially affected throughout the pandemic.

In most cases, Fibre Optic deployment and testing requires a technician to be in very close proximity to residents. Another concern is the need for a resident or building manager to be present to let the technician inside should there be any service interruptions. With Clearfield Test Access Points there is a separation between customer and technician. With the access points many common services (like testing fibre integrity) can be done away from the customers premises.

The benefit of not having to schedule an appointment, respond to calls at all hours, not needing a resident or manager present are invaluable. Not to mention the benefit to the end user who can place a simple service call and sit back and relax.

Test Access Points from Clearfield also come ‘plug-and-play’ which reduces the overall labour and installation costs. These solutions can be configured to house any components for specific jobs, tailored to the installer.
What this chart is illustrating is that the faster an Electric Vehicle is charged; the more willing people are to pay. If we are to extrapolate this data, we can infer those level 2 or 3 chargers are going to be popping up outside of the home almost exclusively. If a business needs to make their money back and people are willing to pay for faster charging it doesn’t make sense to install level 1 chargers.

Are People Willing to Pay for EV Charging?

SDifferent levels of Electric Vehicle charging for all applications has always been a hotly contested debate. Though reports will vary, the answer is ultimately directly correlated with a few variables such as cost, percent of battery remaining, and speed of charging. What’s more, the most important variable seems to be the speed at which a car will...
