Different Business Models for TIPs

After entering into a revenue-sharing arrangement with BSNL, BSNL TIPs/LCOs can integrate OLTs from the aforementioned list into the BSNL network. With revenue sharing percentages ranging from 10% to 50%, the PSU has various TIP Business models (TIP Business Model I, TIP Business Model II, TIP Business Model III, TIP Business Model IV, and TIP Business Model V).

BSNL TIP Business Model IV

The most often used business model allows a franchisee or TIP to get a maximum revenue share of 50%. The Telecom Infrastructure Provider must set up, administer, and maintain his own OLT and OFC network under this business model. In this approach, TIP is in charge of providing client end ONTs, as well as wiring and maintenance. To link his OLT to the nearest BSNL PoP (Point of Presence), TIP must offer back-haul OFC connectivity. BSNL will handle billing and customer onboarding.

Dear readers, we would appreciate hearing your thoughts on this new BSNL project in the comments section. Recent agreements for revenue sharing for the delivery of FTTH services between various local cable providers and BSNL have already been established. How many of you have a cable TV operator connection to BSNL FTTH?
