Thanks for the pointers, Mikael. unfortunately, my Swedish is not much
better than my Japanese... But it is a good start and I am sure I will find
some sort of English description somewhere.
I should have been a bit more explicit in my question: I am not concerned
on the routing of the last mile, sewer, trenching, etc. That is a solved
problem for these projects. The big questions for me is PON vs active and,
if PON, what are the details: prisms in the CO vs prisms in the field,
which xPON to use, etc. How is splicing and interconnection done, etc.
