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.

“With a bit of luck and cooperation of the major stakeholders in the public market, we will have in about two years time faster internet connections”, according to professor John Marsh. But the far east will be the first to enjoy this advantage, as they have invested heavily in fibre optic systems over the past decade rather than relying on old copper networks like Europe and North America. On top of that it is of immense importance that the leading access network companies in the world agree on standards that include a robust roadmap for the next 15 years.
