In order to better meet users' demands for a comprehensive Internet service that combines voice, data and video frequency, Shanghai Netcom has initiated an FTTH (fiber-to-the-home) trial project and has chosen Fiber Home Communications as a partner for this project.
As the first such project for Shanghai Netcom, it is expected to serve as a model for the construction of FTTH in the city.
Fiber Home Communications will provide a GEPON FTTH solution for the project.
FTTH is the installation of optical fiber from a telephone switch directly into the subscriber's home. Fiber optic cable is an alternative to coaxial cable. FTTH is also referred to as fiber-to-the-building (FTTB), which includes optical fiber that is installed directly into a home or enterprise.
