Fiber to the premises (FTTP) is the installation of optical fiber direct to individual buildings such as single-family units, multidwelling units, and businesses to provide high-speed broadband access. FTTP dramatically increases connection speeds and reliability for broadband networks compared to legacy copper infrastructure.
Corning helps network operators stay ahead of demand for high-bandwidth capabilities, so you can deliver on the promise of emerging applications – with solutions that accelerate deployment, improve network performance, and minimize costs. Our FTTP innovations, developed with direct input from our customers, have already delivered fiber connectivity to more than 58 million homes around the world.
In EMEA some countries have completed their FTTP builds while some not even started, and there is a wide spread of FTTP deployment methods. The demands placed on the optical connectivity solutions are increasing with the added complexity of mobile network densification and convergence. FTTP solutions from Corning have been a key enabler for many large scale FTTP deployments and are ready to meet future challenges as networks evolve.
