5 Overview/summary of OSP Construction
● The Outside Plant Project (OSP) consists of installing, splicing, and testing all of the fiber optic cable and drops in the Town of Troy. ● The Outside Plant project will start as soon as possible in the Spring of 2011. (assuming we have approval from all of the environmental agencies) ● The Town of Troy FTTH project was designed as a 100% fiber optic build. The current electronics are provisional to Gigabit Ethernet with Active Ethernet technology and 100Mb using PON technology. ● OSP construction will include static plowing of the mainline fiber, installing handhole vaults (HH) and vibratory lawn plows to the house. 5

6 Misc. and General Information
Private Roads In order for BTI to plow/install fiber along private roads, everyone will need to sign an easement before construction can begin. If you live on a private road, please contact Ken Carlsrud for an easement form. His direct line is Private Utilities Private utilities such as sprinkler systems, sewer systems, power to out buildings, lighting, gates, and alarm systems are not covered by the Wisconsin Diggers Hotline system. These utilities will need to be located/identified by the homeowner prior to plowing the fiber drop on the homeowners property. Current Service Provider Term Contracts If you are currently in a contract with your service provider, please verify when your contract will end. Some providers have an automatic renewal policy that you may not be aware of. Early out/termination fees for these contracted services can have costly penalties. 6

7 Misc. and General Information
What area of Troy will be completed first ? The FTTH project is being funded though the BIP/RUS ARRA program - 50% grant and 50% loan. One of the rules of the program is that there can only be one closeout of the OSP contract. This means the entire project will be completed at the same time. What area of Troy will have services turned up first? With the entire Town being capable of getting services at the same time, and for efficiencies in getting as many connected in the least amount of time, BTI will be connecting customers that have the necessary wiring completed in the order that we received their Check-Off Form. How will BTI know that the home wiring has been completed? When the house wiring is complete, the homeowner will send the signed customer check-off form to BTI. 7

8 Home Wiring One of the key steps of the wiring requirements is the homeowner/electrical contractor installing a 1” PVC pipe from the Network Interface Location (NIL) to the outside of the house. This will accomplish two things. 1.) It will let the outside plant contractor know where the fiber drop needs to be plowed. 2.) It will be used to run either fiber directly into the Network Interface Location (NIL) or copper to the NIL if the Optical Network Terminal (ONT) is to be placed on the outside of the house. 10

9 Network Interface Location
Establish a Network Interface Location (NIL) inside the home This area will need to be a 2’ x 2’ of wall space (minimum) (2’ x 4’ if ONT is inside) This is where all of the low voltage wiring within the home will terminate. It will also be the area where BTI will place equipment needed to provide services. 11

10 Most of the time the NIL is in an utility room or in the basement by the power entrance. Some of the newer homes have a low voltage home run panel somewhere in the house. 12

11 1” PVC Install a 1” PVC conduit from the NIL to an exterior wall with a Lb and riser installed. The conduit riser should be between 46” and 60” from ground level. Minimum of 1 clamp on outside. Conduit should be silicone at the entrance going into the house and riser capped (capped not glued). Conduit LB should be pointed down if ONT will be placed inside the home. Maximum length of conduit end to end should not exceed 40’. 13

13 Homeowner may want the Optical Network Terminal (ONT) placed inside the home for security system reasons. If the ONT is placed inside the home, a 2’ x 4’ area is required. 15 1

15 110 Volt power Outlet Install 110 volt power outlet for FTTH power supply If a dedicated 110 volt outlet (not circuit) is not available, an outlet will need to be installed at the Network Interface Location (NIL). If the ONT will be inside, at the NIL a #6 ground wire will need to be run from power ground to NIL (2’ slack at NIL). 17 1

17 Wiring for Data (Internet)
The wire used for data needs to be a minimum of Category 5 wire. Cat 5 wire needs to be home run from computer/router location back to the NIL. At the computer/router location the wire needs to terminate to a RJ-45 (568b) jack. At the NIL end BTI will terminate the Cat 5 wire during cutover. (Please leave 10’ of wire at the NIL) 19 1

18 New CAT wire 5 terminated with RJ-45 568B data jack

19 If you are going to be using wireless technology within the house, the wireless router must be placed so coverage is achieved everywhere in the house. A basement location is usually not a good location for the wireless router. 21

20 All locations need to be wired with RG-6 Coax.
Cable TV / COAX Wiring All locations need to be wired with RG-6 Coax. Both ends need F type compression connectors installed. TV locations should have a F connector wall plate installed – optional. At the NIL, all ends should be terminated and be next to one another for a splitter to be terminated. BTI will provide the CATV splitter at the time of cutover. 22

21 23

22 Telephone Wiring New CAT 5 wire needs to be installed from current phone junction to NIL. If a new location is needed for phone, CAT 5 wire should be used and terminated on a RJ-11 jack. 24

1. Install Power Supply 5. Test and turn-up Services 2. Install ONT 6. Estimated Time for Cutover 3. Provision Services is Approximately 1 Hour per Service 4. Terminate House Wiring New CAT wire 5 terminated with RF B data jack 26

25 Construction Process The following slides explain the construction process 28

26 Static plows will be used for majority of the mainline cable placement.

27 Handhole/Vault Static Plow 30

28 Black dirt and seeding follows behind any mainline cable plowing operation.

29 Directional boring will be the method used for crossing under
hard surface roads, driveways, water crossings, etc.. 32

30 Vibrating plows will be used for all of the Fiber Optic drops going to the houses.
Locating of utilities will be coordinated by Contractor Fiber drop 33

32 Handhole/Vault HH are used for splice points
for the Fiber Optic cable. They are primarily placed at intersections and locations where the drops will be connected from the houses. 35
