Network Evolution Planning & ETC Filing

A Service Provider's infrastructure and systems must have the flexibility and agility to support future subscriber needs and planned services. CHR's Network Evolution Planning service provides a one-of-a-kind service to help service providers take the risk out of broadband network planning.

What Path Will You Take With Your Broadband Initiatives?

Now that the FCC has released their order on Universal Service Fund (USF) reform, it's time to decide what path you will take with your broadband initiatives. Our engineering experts spend time with your team building a multi-year strategy on where, how, and when to build your fiber network. As a result, you will have a written document outlining a proactive plan for network design, procurement and maintenance of equipment, a schedule for amending the plan over time and a list of solutions capable of kick-starting and supporting the multi-year plan

ETC Filing (FCC Form 481)

In addition, CHR offers a comprehensive (Engineering & Financial) FCC Form 481 annual report filing service based on the Network Evolution Plan, mandatory for ETCs (Eligible Telecommunication Carriers) that receive high-cost support from the government. CHR works with you and your cost consultant to update CAD maps, progress narratives, and financials to support your filing efforts.

For additional details of our Network Evolution Planning & ETC Filing service, please see the corresponding section in our Engineering and Consulting Services Guide.

To learn more about how the FCC's ruling might affect your path or to get the help you need to plan your multi-year initiatives, schedule a meeting with us!
