Fiber-to-the-Home

Delivering a Wide Array of Next-Generation Services

Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) is the ultimate fiber access solution. From OLT (Optical Line Terminal) to the end user’s premises, FTTH leverages PON (Passive Optical Network) technologies to deliver multi-gigabit access to homes, businesses, and infrastructure backhaul.

What are the benefits of fiber access solutions?

High-Speed, Uninterrupted Services

Provide much greater bandwidth, thus enabling more robust video, Internet, and voice services.

Future-Proof Architecture

Handle the most futuristic, high-bandwidth Internet use cases with continually evolving PON technologies.

Economic Development Necessity

Expanding a community with fiber networks ensures the community is ready to take advantage of future opportunities.

Types of PON Technologies

  • Gigabit PON (GPON)

  • 10G PON (XGS-PON)

  • Combo PON (GPON+XGS-PON)

Other Types of Fiber-to-the-X Network Architectures

Fiber-to-the-Building (FTTB)

Fiber terminates at a building and utilizes existing in-building copper or coax wiring for service delivery. An FTTB architecture typically serves multi-tenant buildings such as condos and apartments.

Fiber-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC)

Fiber terminates at a cabinet near residential or business areas and utilizes existing copper or coax wiring for service delivery. FTTC is also known as Fiber-to-the-Curb.

Fiber-to-the-Node (FTTN)

Fiber terminates at a cabinet which serves a network of multiple neighborhoods within a mile radius – also referred to as the last mile. FTTN is also known as Fiber-to-the-Neighborhood.
