FTTH significantly improves connection speeds. It can achieve connection speeds of up to 100 megabits per second (Mbps). These speeds are between 20 to 100 times faster than those of DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) and standard cable modem connections. But how does FTTH work?

FTTH Connection

FTTH connects phone switches and data centers using fiber optic cable. It is resistant to interference (RFI and EMI), noise, and crosstalk since it transmits information in the form of optical pulses rather than electrical signals like those carried by a twisted pair of coaxial cables.

Additionally, it can transmit data over a longer distance compared to copper or coaxial cable. The only thing that may limit its ability to transmit data is the equipment used to illuminate the fiber. Compared to FTTN (fiber to the node) or FTTC (fiber to the curb), FTTH or FTTP brings the fiber optic cable directly to the customer.

In recent years, independent service providers and more telecommunications companies are deploying FTTH networks that target users who are dissatisfied with cable or the DSL Internet experience, partly due to the decline in the cost of fiber optic cables and equipment (among other reasons).

Offers an Array of Services

An FTTH operator or internet provider offers various services from the Point of Presence (PoP) or Central Office (CO) over a fiber optic cable to a subscriber’s home.

Some of the services provided over the FTTH network:

  • High-speed internet
  • pay-per-view
  • video on demand
  • HDTV
  • IPTV
  • MPEG video
  • RF video
  • lifeline POTS
  • and VoIP

FTTH is the preferred means for providing triple production services (data, video, and voice). Content from the Internet and Video Headend is supplied to the CO or PoP. It features interfaces that let you access content sources like voice gateway GR-303 (PSTN), ATM/ Ethernet switch, and router. From the Central Officer (CO), the content mix is first transformed from electrical signals into optical pulses before being relayed to subscribers’ locations via the Optical Distribution Network (ODN). The optical pulses are then converted into electrical signals by a CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) inside each subscriber’s location.

Since the 1980s, FTTH has greatly evolved to meet the increasing network demands of the modern world. By 2023, 5G speeds will increase to 13 times higher than typical mobile connection speeds, according to Cisco. For more details about our offerings, give us a call.
