The building of Fibre to the Home (FTTH) networks differs from the general construction of trunk line fibre optic cable routes. Differences are caused by, for instance, the large amounts of fibre, the many branchings, and bringing fibre optic cables all the way to homes.
In building FTTH networks, technically viable, long-term and cost-effective solutions in network materials, cables and installation accessories are being sought. In our building solutions, we’re using familiar trunk line materials as our starting point. With the increase in experience, cable and accessory solutions specifically designed for Fibre to the Home networks have been developed.
Since the number of subscribers may grow rapidly from a few dozen to even thousands, it is important to plan the construction and material solutions for networks and material solutions so that the networks can be maintained and expanded in a controlled manner over the years.
