FTTx Network

FTTx fiber stands for Fiber to the X, a generic term used for any broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop. It can be to the clients' house (FTTH) or to some point in the last mile, which can be made through ADSL or coaxial cable (FTTC and FTTN). All over the world many legacy telecom networks, are now upgrading to FTTx due to the vastly improved speed, capacity potential of fiber optic and lower costs.

Benefits of FTTx

Optical fiber network architecture offers several advantages against others next-generation access (NGA) networks, and some of them are: it is future-proof as it supports bigger data bandwidth, the use of totally passive optical networks, with less impact on the environment due to less energy consumption, more durability and less maintenance, higher distances with no signal degradation, no electromagnetic interference, easy to ship and install, summarily it has an unbeatable good cost/benefit ratio in greenfields.

FTTx has several configurations, such as FTTH, FTTC, and FTTN. While in green fields FTTH is the common accepted solution, according to the legacy networks, there are different approaches to making the final connection from the fiber backbone to the user in the home or business. Fiber to the home (FTTH) means that the cabling terminates at the boundary of the living space in order to reach clients' homes and business offices. FTTH contributes greatly to regional economic growth wherever it goes, and it has a part to play in reducing our consumption of energy. FTTC stands for fiber to the cabinet/curb, a terminal place, that refers to the pole or closet that houses the mounted communications device where coaxial cables or twisted pairs then send the signals from the curb to the client premises. FTTN known as fiber to the node/neighborhood or also called fiber to the antenna, allows more efficient delivery of broadband services such as high-speed internet with fewer costs, taking advantages of the current infrastructures.
Why transmit data using light instead of, for example, electric pulses? Simple: light is really fast. The speed of light in a vacuum is some 300,000 kilometers per second, and just one-third slower, or about 200,000 kilometers per second, when traveling through a fiber-optic cable. There are some coax cables that perform better than this, but these coax transmission lines need many more amplifiers than the optical fiber lines, making optical fiber technology the fastest transmission solution for long-distance lines. An optical fiber has a glass core through which light travels. Around this core is another layer of glass called the ‘cladding’, which ensures light doesn’t escape from the core. An optical technique is known as ‘Total Internal Reflection’ keeps the light inside the core. A protective polymer coating protects the glass of the cladding from moisture, dirt, and damage.
FTTH (Fiber to the Home) connection goes directly to each residence, offering a higher bandwidth however It's expensive to install. FTTN (Fiber to the Node or Neighborhood) starts by running fiber until the node, and finally to the customer, through what is usually called "last mile" service, which can be achieved with copper or other types of wire. FTTN systems just like FTTC systems, often use the coaxial or twisted-pair cable in order to achieve delivery to multiple customers.
Both fiber and ADSL can be excellent choices. ADSL means Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line and it transmits data along already existing copper cables by telephone lines. That way, copper cables started to be designed for voice transmission and have a limited bandwidth while fiber optic cables provide more bandwidth for carrying more data than copper cables of the same diameter. Within the fiber cable family, single-mode fiber delivers up to twice the throughput of multimode fiber. Although one of the main benefits of fiber being the support of bigger data bandwidth, copper is still cheaper because of the telephone landline is already in place, ready to be used.
