Understanding the Split Ratios and Splitting Level of Optical Splitters

Optical splitters play an important role in FTTH PON networks where a single optical input is split into multiple output, thus allowing a single PON interface to be shared among many subscribers. The optical splitters have no active electronics and don’t require any power to operate. They are typically installed in each optical network between […]

FBT Splitters vs. PLC Splitters: What Are the Differences?

Fiber optic splitters play an increasingly significant role in many of today’s optical network topologies. They provide capabilities that help users maximize the functionality of optical network circuits from FTTx systems to traditional optical networks. And usually they are placed in the central office or in one of the distribution points (outdoor or indoor). This […]

GPON: Optimal Solution to FTTH

Recently, the increasing spread of the Internet is the major driver for the development of new access technologies, which demand more capacities carry to bandwidth. Among these technologies, Fiber to the Home (FTTH) appears the most suitable choice. An optimal option for FTTH technology, Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) provides one of the most cost-effective ways […]
