The growth of the FTTH business depends on several factors, of which FTTH access technologies are an important element. While the ultimate result of deployment of FTTH almost everywhere in Europe is no longer in doubt, developing FTTH technologies will play a big part in the timing. In a business environment, timing is everything. Growth in FTTH deployment will require more complex network architectures in order to distribute ever higher bandwidth content to subscribers. Here you can learn about what those architectures will look like, what kind of data rates will be transmitted and the components you will need to work with in a few years’ time. Growth in FTTH deployment will enable new applications, such as data centres. These mass data storage centres, made famous by Google, may become an important part of many business operations. This year’s symposium will present the latest outlook for developing FTTH technologies: fibre-optic components for FTTH, design of FTTH networks, taking into consideration emission of Greenhouse Gases, and applications that need FTTH connections to prosper.
