Fiber to the Home - Fiber in the Home

Fiber to the Home (FTTH) and Fiber in the Home (FITH) revolutionise the way people live, work and play. The vast bandwidth capability of fiber optics has opened new doors for operators, service providers and developers who are eager to capitalise on the service delivery and revenue opportunities only fiber can deliver. Users themselves are pulling through the demand for higher performance networks through the increase in video streaming, game playing, IP telephony and 3D-television (3D-HDTV). Whichever way you look at it, FTTH is the only architecture capable of delivering both the revenue and service packages demanded by operator and end-users alike.

User applications such as HD and 3D TV, video-on-demand, online gaming, cloud computing, home offices, e-health, intelligent buildings as well as the need for fast internet (upload and download) require more and more bandwith performance.

Fiber optic is the only network solution (Central offices, Outside plants, Customer premises) that copes with all these challenges – today and more important in the future. Fiber in the Home (FITH) secures the cabling with fiber optic within a building. Thus FITH is a part of FTTH, the network architecture that connects data centers with subscribers using fiber optic conductors. Actually, buildings all over the world are connected to the fiber optic network – FITH is simply the logical continuation to the end-user.

FITH – Solutions for the most recent needs

FITH creates new challenges: service providers, installers, architects, house owners, dwellers and consumers converge – every target group with different needs. That's the reason why it makes sense to contemplate FITH separately. Due to this setting HUBER+SUHNER has developed products and system solutions that are specifically tailored to those needs. New revolutionary connectors and fiber optic cables enable a secure, fast and easy installtion in buildings without having to consider the bend radius or the diameter of the pipe systems. Thus, the connection with fiber optic from the building entry point to the customer premises equipment becomes a simple and reliable matter.
