FTTH or fiber to the home, is the fiber optic cable, which replaces the local telecommunications company's standard copper wire. Many people like it because it can carry high-speed broadband services with integrated voice, data and video, and is a junction box that runs directly to home or buildings. So it is sometimes called fiber to architecture or FTTB.
The traditional copper telephone line transmits analog signals generated by telephone equipment, including facsimile machines. Analog technology is essentially a less accurate signal 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 to make it a major source of network technology that can be brought to the home or business. However, most subscribers log on to the network through a limited capacity copper wire. This creates a bottleneck in the technology that requires more bandwidth. FTTH bridged the gap.
FTTH box is costly in many cases. It may be expensive to install it, and the monthly cost of the subsequent broadband service may also be a burden. As fibers become more and more common, costs are likely to fall over time.
Due to the cost and logistical difficulties involved in replacing existing copper wires in some areas, FTTH box are usually installed in the new community as an additional sales feature. Install it will raise the value of the existing property.
Ftth Box can be installed as a point-to-point architecture or passive optical network (PON). FTTH is different from fiber to roadside (FTTC) because FTTC does not run directly to homes or buildings. Instead, it runs to the curb, and the last line to each building is still copper.
