What are the different types of fiber networks?
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.
