This forward thinking session will review lessons learned from deploying robotic fiber automation in central Datacenters and Edge installations. Based on case studies and real world examples, we will present benefits and challenges applying robotics in the field. Attendees will emerge in vendor-neutral applications discussion about zero-touch cross connects; smart ports, physical fiber re-routing automation; polarity correction; fast onboarding, fiber-as-a-service – all presented with captivating real-world use cases. Case study examples of "automated meet-me-room", "fiber trunk as a service", "distributed networking" show measurable CAPEX/OPEX savings, but more importantly new revenue stream opportunities.
We've been relying on fiber cables since the dawn of IT. We have seen automation tools emerging on every level of the ISO stack, but not the physical one. This has changed – physical fiber automation is now fully matured and datacenters, lab and edge environments expand the efficiency of doing business.
Physical Fiber automation is smart connectivity.
Software controlled changes of physical infrastructure.
Repeatable, auditable and effective change management.
Robots are cool.
