"Ever more rapidly and more and more". That's how data transmission is developing. No technology is better suited to this than fiber optics technology. Here data is transported via fiber optic cables. First, glass fiber cables were used in the transport networks. In the meantime the so-called "last mile" has been covered and the possibilities provided by fiber optics have become more accessible to the customers, thereby increasing the highest speeds that end-users can achieve.
- FTTN - Fiber-to-the-node: Here fiber is terminated in a street cabinet some distance away from the customer premises. The data is then transported via copper cable.
- FTTC - fiber-to-the-curb: Here the fiber cable reaches the curb. The loss of speed within the last mile is very insignificant.
- FTTB - Fiber-to-the-building: The building is connected to the fiber optics network.
- FTTH - Fiber-to-the-home: The living space is now connected via fiber optics.
