Fiber deployment as part of a public initiative network

Wed 10 Mar 2021

PINs (Public Initiative Networks) are public contracts aimed at deploying Fiber in less dense areas of France.


As part as the deployment of one of these FTTH PINs, our client, specialized in Public Works and guarantor of FTTH deployment, called upon our team to meet several challenges :

  • Meet its deployment objectives.
  • To have a work planning and resource management.
  • Pilot subcontracting.


Our experts have worked on both the transmission and distribution network and the backbone system.

At the level of the transmission and distribution network, the objective was to reorganize the design office in charge of the design of the fiber (HLD/LLD) in order to align it with the contractual objectives of our client. To achieve this, it was necessary to:

  • Clarify the roles and perimeters of responsibilities in each of the 3 concerned design offices,
  • Align resources with objectives (recruitment, internal reorganization).

A transfer of competence was carried out to allow our client to manage his design office independently at the end of the assignment.

On the second part, our experts managed the team in charge of the backbone network in order to align the production rate of the backbone links in line with the objectives. For this, it was necessary to define and implement the reporting processes and tools.

Another challenge was to create the conditions for good coordination between the teams in charge of the transmission/distribution network and those in charge of thebackbone network in order to:

  • Synchronize civil works when needed (cost and time savings)
  • Synchronize the activation of equipments to ensure a progressive and coherent deployment.


The FTTH expertise of our experts, as well as best practices from other similar projects, were key assets to enable a quality deployment.

Thanks to the intervention of our team, our client has:

  • a clear and consistent planning,
  • a rebalancing of workloads and objectives of each design offices,
  • deployments in accordance with the objective,
  • refined business processes,
  • regular monitoring of subcontracting.
