Investment in fiber access networks has been growing rapidly. Last year, the FTTH council reported over half of European households can now connect with fiber. This wide availability comes with two questions: can we do more with this available fiber infrastructure and can we make sure that the premium service fiber is delivering can benefit all devices in the home. On top of this, given that fiber is now available at every building, why not use it for more than just residential services? What are new services beyond residential that may benefit and what are the new visionary applications that users are dreaming about?

Barbara Tonarelli will address these questions and more alongside the FTTH Conference workshop panel with views from developers, operators and system vendors. Register now for the in-person or virtual event beginning April 18.
