What is FTTx?

FTTx stands for Fiber to the x or fiber in the loop is a generic term for any broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications.

FTTX is a generalization for several configurations of fiber deployment, arranged into two groups: FTTP/FTTH/FTTB and FTTC/FTTN.

FTTx Network


FTTP - Fiber to the Premises. Optical fiber is used for an optical distribution network (ODN) from the central office all the way to the premises occupied by the subscriber. Since the optical fiber cable can provide a higher bandwidth than copper cable over the last kilometer, operators usually use FTTP to provide voice, video and data services.


FTTH - Fiber to the Home. Fiber reaches the boundary of the living space, such as a box on the outside wall of a home. Passive optical networks and point-to-point Ethernet are architectures that are capable of delivering triple-play services over FTTH networks directly from an operator's central office.


FTTB - Fiber to the Building. It means the fiber is terminated at the building. This is typically done for buildings with multiple units, where individual units may be serviced differently. FTTB deployments are often used to connect apartment blocks or other large buildings.


FTTC - Fiber to the Curb. In a FTTC deployment, optical cabling usually terminates within 300 meters of the customer premises. Fiber cables are installed or utilized along the roadside from the central office to home or office. Using the FTTC technique, the last connection between the curb and home or office can use the coaxial cable.


FTTN - Fiber to the Node. The optical fiber terminates in a cabinet which may be as much as a few miles from the customer premises. And the final connection from street cabinet to customer premises usually uses copper.
