Fiber To The Cabinet (FTTCFTTC Fiber To The Cabinet (FTTC) denotes a network architecture partly consisting of a copper ADSL cable and partly of a fibre-optic cable. The former travels the shortest route, connecting the user’s modem to the switching box, while the latter, the fibre cable, completes the route all the way to the exchange.) denotes a networkNetwork In computer language, the term network defines a set of hardware and software devices which, when linked together, enable the exchange and sharing of resources, data or information. In a computer network, the devices that generate, route and terminate data are called network nodes. architecture partly consisting of a copper ADSLADSL ADSL, Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, is one of the cable broadband technologies which, via a modem, uses the normal copper twisted pair and transforms the traditional telephone line into a high-speed digital connection. This type of connection is referred to as ‘asymmetric’ because it permits two different speeds: a higher download speed to receive data and a limited upload speed to transmit it. Operating in Italy since 2000, the quality of an ADSL connection depends on the consistency of the copper, the distance of the main collector, and, last but not least, whether or not the distributor is connected via fibre optics to the rest of the network. cable and partly of a fibre-optic cable. The former travels the shortest route, connecting the user’s modem to the switching box, while the latter, the fibre cable, completes the route all the way to the exchange.

Fiber Sensing: optical fibre 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.
