This page:Keeps track of FTTH evolution.


What's FTTH?

 

One FTTH network is a fibre-based access network, connecting a large number of end users (houses, buildings, cell sites,...) to a central point known as an access node or point of presence (POP).

 

 

FTTH network may have many architectures:

  • Fibre to the home (FTTH), or fiber to end users' home.
  • Fibre to the building (FTTB), where fiber goes to the building and the distribution to other subscribers is made through Ethernet network using coaxial cable or copper pair.
  • Fibre to the curb (FTTC), where fiber goes to a street cabine. The distribution to subscribers in this neighborhood is made through VDSL2 or Ethernet using coaxial cable or copper pair.

There are hybrid networks in fiber and cable (HFC), used by cable TV providers.

 

FTTH networks offer speeds up to 100 Mbps. The growth in broadband use and the demand for faster speeds increase the investments in FTTH networks around the world.
