Fiber to the Home (FTTH)

Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is the final structural layer of a glass fiber infrastructure. In this topology approach, the glass fiber is led into the residence or into the residential area of the building.

Depending upon the number of subscribers and size of the building, the glass fiber is led directly into the residential area and connected with an optical wall outlet box, or first split up even more precisely through floor distributors, to be led in turn to the last optical wall outlet box.

As we mentioned, each subscriber has his/her own glass fiber, but only up to the next cross connection cabinet. There, a passive optical splitter exists, which splits the signal from a glass fiber from the central office to all subscriber glass fibers.


The advantage is that fewer ports are required in the central office, and therefore active equipment require less space and energy.

Every FTTH network setup is subdivided into different zones that are connected with one another, but which must fulfill different requirements. The actual FTTH infrastructure begins with the Feeder Zone and extends into the Access Area. The underlying areas like the City Ring and Backbone generally already exist.

Synapse ATS can provide for Telco & ISP solutions from the Backbone, City Ring, Feeder and Access Networks. Our solution is based on R&M and Panduit.
