Open Fiber’s coverage plan
We have drawn up a coverage plan to bring fiber optics to our country. This allows us to serve not only the A&B Clusters, i.e. the large urban areas in which there are 282 Italian municipalities, but also the C&D Clusters, the so-called White AreasWhite Areas White Areas are those where private operators have not deemed it worthwhile to invest and therefore lack broadband and ultra-broadband infrastructure. with low population density.
The goal is to guarantee a connection with a performance of up to 10 Gigabits per second for uploadUpload Uploading data online. and downloadDownload The action of downloading or retrieving data from the network. nationwide, through the creation of fiber-optic 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. infrastructure FTTHFTTH “Fiber to the Home” is the technology that connects POPs, located in exchanges, to end users’ property units with fiber optics. (Fiber To The Home), or alternatively FWAFWA Also known as ‘Wireless Local Loop’ (WLL), FWA refers to the use of radio solutions to cover the last mile to property units dispersed in very sparsely populated areas. A main antenna, typically connected to the network via fiber optics, covers an area of varying size where an antenna is mounted on each property unit equipped with an apparatus that transforms the radio signal and enables the connection of the CPE (Customer Premises Equipment), the electronic device used as a user-side terminal. (Fixed WirelessWireless Connections that use ‘wireless’ transmission systems to connect the user’s device to the network. Typical examples are 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, and WiMax.
