Fiber to the home (FTTH) is the installation and use of optical fiber all the way to individual buildings such as single family units (SFUs), multidwelling units (MDUs), and businesses to provide high-speed broadband access. FTTH dramatically increases connection speeds and reliability for broadband networks compared to existing copper infrastructures.
Corning Optical Communications is an industry-leading supplier of FTTH product solutions, with more than 20 years and more than 50 million homes passed (HP) and counting. Our extensive portfolio of FTTH products and network expertise ensure our ability to provide solutions that address major challenges such as speed of deployment, labor costs, performance and quality, cost deferment, and network future readiness.
In EMEA some countries have completed their FTTH builds while some not even started, and there is a wide spread of FTTH deployment methods. The demands placed on the optical connectivity solutions are increasing with the added complexity of mobile network densification and convergence. FTTH solutions from Corning have been a key enabler for many large scale FTTH deployments and are ready to meet future challenges as networks evolve.
