Achieving a full-coverage system with the best possible broadband offerings is the big goal of the telecommunication industry. The manufacturers of active components are proceeding step by step in their development of higher-performance systems for the Last Mile. In the current era, vectoring is the innovation with the most favorable ratio of capital expenditures to operational expenditures. Further evolutionary steps such as G.fast will draw even more performance out of copper conductors.
An essential prerequisite for vectoring is to expand fiber optic networks up to distributors deployed far forward. They are located in residential areas, on streets, in large buildings or on industrial premises. We designate these arrangements as follows:
- Fiber to the Street (FTTS)
- Fiber to the Curb (FTTC)
- Fiber to the Building (FTTB)
This interface between new fiber-optic infrastructure and existing copper infrastructure is where modular cabling solutions from R&M close every gap in no time at all.
