What is FTTH?
In fiber-optics communications, transparent optical fibers are used to transmit data. Optical fibers are thin, transparent tubes that can transmit light through a transparent core surrounded by transparent cladding material. Fiber optics provides higher data-carrying capacity and speed, lower attenuation, longer communication distances and can be used where communication lines need high-traffic point-to-point or point-to-multipoint connections.
FTTH is a 100% optical connection between you and the service provider. FTTH delivers High Speed Broadband connections that carry voice, data and video at the same time. This cannot be achieved with ageing copper wire networks. Fiber optics isn’t exactly alien technology. It’s been around for a few decades, in fact. While it was ridiculously expensive when first invented, the cost to implement fiber optics for mass users is now at an all-time low.
Fiber optics is quickly gaining popularity and demand in Malaysia and it’s being hailed as the next step in internet and communication connectivity technology.
Why is there a demand for FTTH?
The Internet is evolving. Demand for more bandwidth grows as more and more applications and services are made available to users every day. Current copper wire technology just won’t deliver the slick high-definition media and graphics-intensive websites that shape the online experience today.
There’s a good chance that the copper wire connection in your home is affecting your online experience. Copper wires have very limited carrying capacities and a bottleneck situation is bound to happen. The result? Data takes forever to reach your home, and you get frustrated.
