NIDs are an effective way of providing operational and capital savings to service providers. A NID is installed at the customer premise and provides a demarcation point between the service provider and customer's network. Network Interface Devices allow for end-to-end Operations, Administration and Maintenance (OAM) functionality for the service provider.
The basic functions, such as loopback testing and remote fault isolation, in the NID provide service providers a number of benefits, including: reduced truck rolls, fewer test sets in the field, and increased reliability. The result of this for the service provider is a reduction in OpEx and CapEx while providing a faster return on investment (ROI).
While the operational savings of NIDs can be shown with their features and capabilities for remote troubleshooting, easy installation and Service Level Agreement (SLA) monitoring to reduce SLA penalties, it is important for service providers to be aware of the additional revenue streams and services that can be achieved when using a NID at the demarcation point. NIDs have advanced features such as bandwidth allocation, Quality of Service (QoS), Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) and other features that allow the service provider the capability to provide tiered service offerings to customers.
