Fiber EXPLAINED

 

FIBER TO THE NODE (FTTN)

FTTN (“Fiber to the Node”) runs a line of fiber optic cable to a node that’s in the vicinity of your home or office building. From there, the broadband service is provided through the existing copper or coaxial cable infrastructure available.

FIBER TO THE CURB (FTTC)

FTTC (“Fiber to the Curb”) brings a fiber optic line to a location close to your property, but it stops there and connects to existing copper lines to deliver broadband service to your home or office. FTTC is the newest option to appear for fiber optic broadband service and comes closest to a direct fiber connection without actually entering your building.

FIBER TO THE BUILDING (FTTB)

FTTB (“Fiber to the Building”) and FTTP (“Fiber to the Premises”) are different acronyms for nearly the same type of fiber optic connection. The fiber cable reaches your property, and in the case of FTTB directly into the building where you need Internet access.

FIBER TO THE PREMISES (FTTP)

FTTP (“Fiber to the Premises”) is also referred to as FTTH (“Fiber to the Home”). Fiber to the Premises is just a broader term used to include commercial (ie; non-residential) buildings. The fiber cable in FTTP reaches right into your property just like FTTB and is the most direct fiber-optic connection available
