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 fiber-optic cable. The former travels the shortest route, connecting the user’s modem to the switching box, while the latter, the fiber 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 fiber optics to the rest of the network. cable and partly of a fiber-optic cable. The former travels the shortest route, connecting the user’s modem to the switching box, while the latter, the fiber cable, completes the route all the way to the exchange.

FAAS project: even more efficient FTTH fiber optic for seismic monitoring
Discovering the FAAS project, a further step in the use of FTTHFTTH “Fiber to the Home” is the technology that connects POPs, located in exchanges, to end users’ property units with fiber optics. fiber optic for seismic sensing. A collaboration with the Politecnico di Torino, the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), and the […]
Connectivity as a primary need: data from the EY survey
According to a recent EY survey, in spite of rising prices, connectivity remains a primary need for citizens. What role does Open Fiber play? Connectivity is a primary need for citizens, according to the recent EY survey ‘Decoding the digital home study’. The survey, conducted on 2,500 households in Italy and over 20,000 globally, analysed consumer […]
