About Fibre-To-The-Home

Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) is one of the broadband technologies for the mass market. FTTH enables the simultaneous transportation of several services, such as very fast Internet, telephony and television, via one optic fiber. With FTTH, the access network is able to deliver a speed of 10Mb/s, 100 Mbps and even 1 Gbps. This creates an access network with nearly unrestricted possibilities. This technology supports a complete open business model in which consumers can choose any service supplier. Recently, Ericsson's offering in the areas of fixed broadband access portfolio and converged networks has been significantly strengthened by the acquisition on Entrisphere, market-leading GPON platform supplier. The Entrisphere acquisition brings a leading IP based broadband access platform ready for volume deployment compliant with both North American and international standards.
