The fiber terminatorFiber terminator The fiber terminator is a passive element placed inside the property unit that defines the termination point of the optical fiber used to connect the P.U. to the Open Fiber access network. The terminator is connected to the ONT (Optical Network Termination) and router, through which the user will be able to take advantage of all fiber optic connectivity services. is a passive element placed inside the property unit that defines the termination point of the optical fiberOptical fiber A cable made of glass fiber through which a light signal is transmitted over long distances for broadband network access. Compared to copper cables, optical fiber can transmit signals much faster, up to 40 Gigabits per second. It is therefore ideal for quickly transferring large amounts of data; it is also unaffected by external interference (electromagnetic interference, temperature variations, etc.). While fiber optics certainly offers the advantage of fast, high-quality and secure data transmission, its high installation cost is a drawback for network builders.

In a computer network, the devices that generate, route and terminate data are called network nodes.. The terminator is connected to the ONT (Optical Network Termination) and routerRouter A network device that routes data packets between different networks or between sub-networks of the same network. Large carrier routers establish the traffic paths on the Internet backbone, while the more familiar home routers merely exchange packets between the home network and the Operator’s network, which in turn feeds into the worldwide Internet., through which the user will be able to take advantage of all fiber optic connectivity services.
Pitigliano the first digital village in Italy: the Open Fiber project
Open Fiber’s FTTHFTTH “Fiber to the Home” is the technology that connects POPs, located in exchanges, to end users’ property units with fiber optics. fibre will support the implementation of advanced digital services in Pitigliano to combat the digital divideDigital Divide A term to describe the gap between those who can use new information and […]

Digital revolution: all the advantages of telemedicine
The digital evolution of medicine works through ultra-broadbandBroadband The term broadband, in telecommunications, generally refers to the transmission and reception of information data at a connection speed of over 144 kb/s. Broadband organises different channels, conveying different content in the form of data, such as Internet radio, animation, audio files and high-definition video. technology: we […]
Open Fiber is the first Italian company to obtain ESG certification from SGS
Environmental, Social, Governance: ESG certification attests the creation and implementation of sustainable practices in a company. Here is how Open Fiber managed to obtain it. ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) Certification consists of a set of criteria related to the management of environmental, social and governance issues that organisations must meet. Open Fiber has been the first […]

Fiber Sensing: optical fiber is also a sensor
Fiber Sensing, also known as ‘distributed sensing’, is a technology that enables continuous measurements of seismic waves in real time over the entire length of a fibre optic cable. Let’s take a look at its applications together.
