OutSide Plant design(OSP) is a specialized field worthy of significant
study. The consequences of getting a OSP design wrong are much harder to
fix than getting a network design wrong. You are designing for *20 years*.
If you are at the point of asking a mailing list NANOG, which, um, is not
focused on OSP expertise, it is a really, really good idea to concentrate
on hiring the best consultant.

I have viewed this train wreck too many times.
