FTTx Network overview

FTTx, fiber to the x, is a collective term for any broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications. It consists of a passive optical network (PON) that allows several customers to share the same connection, without any active components .

There are also many variations of the FTTx architecture, with different network destinations, FTTx can be categorized into several terminologies, such as FTTH, FTTN, FTTC,FTTB, FTTP, etc.

The table on the right provides a graphical comparison of the most common FTTx. (created by Wikipedia user Riick and is published under the terms of a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license.).


FTTx Network Applications

A feeder fiber is brought from an optical line terminal (OLT) in the CO to a fiber distribution hub (FDH) near a group of customers. From that point, a passive splitter is used to typically connect up to 32 or 64 customers to the same feeder fiber. Then, each customer premises is provided with an optical network terminal (ONT) connected to each splitter branch. This point-to-multipoint architecture dramatically reduces network installation, management, and maintenance costs.

With its high bandwidth potential, FTTx has been closely coupled with triple play of voice, video and data services. And the world has now evolved beyond triple play to a converged multi-play services environment with a high bandwidth requirement. Applications like IPTV, VOIP, RF video, interactive online gaming, security, Internet web hosting, traditional Internet and even smart grid or smart home are widely used in FTTx network.
