Optical Fibre Communications in the context of FTTH/B – Presented by Rong Zhao, FTTH Council Europe. At the 3rd edition of the Photonic Integration Conference, on September 26, 2017, at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Optical fibre communications is one of thousands applications based on photonics. To provide a high broadband access for consumers and enterprises, Fibre to the Home (FTTH) and Fibre to the Building (FTTB) are the key architecture in the Next Generation Access (NGA) networks. Until the end of September 2016, more than 280 Million subscribers are using FTTH/B-based solutions over the world, which will significantly increase in next 5-10 years due to the digitalization development. The active and passive infrastructure of FTTH/B does benefit from photonic technologies.

About Photonic Integration Conference 2017
The 3rd edition of the Photonic Integration Conference will take place on September 26, 2017 at High Tech Campus Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
This edition will focus on business models for applying photonic integration, cases of photonic integration in optical sensing, lighting & energy, IT and telecom – current situation and future prospects.
Speakers from AIM Photonics, PhotonDelta, BRIDG – Bridging the Innovation Development Gap, Tyndall National Institute, University of Glasgow, Fiber To The Home COUNCIL EUROPE, Lightwave Logic, LioniX International and CEA-LETI will be there to talk about the topics of interest.
The conference program also includes a session on “Semicon meets Photonics”, hosted by The Business Cluster Semiconductors Netherlands, where you can catch a glimpse into the important role that photonics is expected to play in the future of the semiconductor industry.
