Fiber To The Home

Imagine a housing development with no running water, no gas, no electricity – the result: no buyers. You can now add high speed broadband access to that list of necessities, for it is has
indeed become the fourth utility. To a great extent, optical fiber initiated and continues to feed users’ hunger for bandwidth, creating a market that is increasingly demanding high-speed
broadband, and is willing to pay for it. Currently, there are many broadband applications that people want, and want today: video-on-demand, high-definition TV, gaming, home security, telecommuting, movie downloads, home education, video-conferencing, sophisticated telephone service and more.

A fairly modest mix of these services could involve transference speeds beyond traditional infrastructures. Optical fiber, however, is up to the task, and when deployed with fiber flow can be installed easily, and cost effectively. One of the strengths of fiber flow is that with new constructions, tubes can be laid fiber-ready along with other utility lines. This drastically reduces build costs and the higher, often unnecessary, cost of redundant fiber provision.

As customer requirements emerge and expand – and they will, because we’re just in the early stages of the broadband explosion – fiber bundles can simply be blown in to supply service where it is required, when it is required.

 

FTTH, or Fiber To The Home, refers to fiber optic cable that replaces the standard copper wire of the local Telco. FTTH is desirable because it can carry high-speed broadband services integrating voice, data and video, and runs directly to the junction box at the home or building. For this reason it is sometimes called Fiber To The Building, or FTTB.

 

Traditional copper telephone wires carry analog signals generated by telephone equipment, including fax machines. Analog technology is by nature a less precise signaling technology than digital technology. Though multiplexing has allowed digital signals to be transmitted across multiple channels over copper lines, fiber optic cable is superior for relaying these signals and allows for faster transfer rates and virtually unlimited bandwidth. This opens the door to better Internet speed, streaming video, and other demanding applications.
The Internet utilizes a backbone of fiber optic cables capable of delivering incredible bandwidth. This inherent ability makes the Internet a prime source for advancing network technologies that can be brought to the home or business. Most subscribers, however, log on to this network through copper lines with limited capacity. This creates a bottleneck for advancing technologies that increasingly require greater bandwidth. FTTH bridges this gap.
