Splice or Connector: Which to Choose for FTTH Drop Cable Installation?

When deploying a FTTH network, subscribers must choose the right drop cable interconnect solution. So they need to decide whether to use splices (permanent joint) or connectors (easily mated and unmated by hand) for the best solution. This is for both ends of the drop cable—the distribution point and at the home’s optical network terminal […]

How Much Do You Know About FTTH PON Testing?

Passive optical network (PON) is a cost-effective way to deliver high-bandwidth broadband services to users and widely deployed all over the world. FTTH uses PON technology and provides high bandwidth from the central office (CO) to subscribers. FTTH PON system achieves network reliability and makes network testing, monitoring and measuring easier. This article will tell […]

Causes of Mechanical Splice Termination Failures

FTTH (fiber to the home) has become increasingly popular in optical communication industry. Fiber optic termination, as one of the topics which have never been out of fashion in this field, has naturally become a focus of FTTH network deployment, especially the indoor termination. In FTTH network, mechanical splice connectors are usually used in FTTH […]

Lower FTTH Cost and Increase Reliability With Tight Buffer Indoor/Outdoor Cable

FTTH (Fiber to the Home) network connects a large number of end users to a central point known as an access node to provide the application and services of high speed. The links between end users and access node are achieved largely by fiber optic cables. Loose buffer cables and tight buffer cables are commonly […]

Drop Cable and Its Termination in FTTH

FTTH (fiber to the home) networks are installed in many areas covering indoor section, outdoor section, as well as the transition in between. To fulfill the cabling requirements from different areas, different types of fiber optic cables are well developed. Drop cable as an important part of FTTH network forms the final external link between […]

FTTH Access Network Based on GPON

The increasing demands for new data transmission services and various bandwidth-related applications have led telecommunication operators to seriously consider optical fiber based networks. Enabling faster computer connectivity, fiber to the home (FTTH) seems to be an ideal choice to meet those demands in the long run. FTTH, a form of fiber-optic communication delivery, refers to […]
