What is Fibre to the home (FTTH)?
FTTH is a form of fibre-optic communication delivery which reaches oneâ€™s space either its living or working. The fibre extends from the central office to the subscriber’s space. The signal may be conveyed throughout the space using any means, which includes coaxial cable, power line communication, twisted pair,wireless.Â It is common for the building’s phone and cable TV systems & Ethernet to connect directly to the optical network terminal for FTTH. It is possible to combine signals and transport them over a common medium such as Ethernet ,if all the systems cannot get direct access to the unit. Equipment like a network interface controller or routerÂ can separate the signals and convert them into the appropriate protocol, once closer to the end user.
