The ‘real’ fiber optics is only FTTHFTTH “Fiber to the Home” is the technology that connects POPs, located in exchanges, to end users’ property units with fiber optics..

There is not always much awareness about fiber optics. Yet, knowing the different facets of a tool, such as connectivity, today is crucial to protect consumers when signing 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. 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. contracts. To this end, Agcom has taken action with an initiative to provide clarity.

In July 2018, in compliance with Decree Law no. 148 of 16 October 2017, a resolution was adopted to define the different types of infrastructure used. It was also stipulated that Operators should ensure, in all communications, full transparency in the presentation of the elements composing the network.

Green Label for fiber to the home

Agcom has introduced guarantee signs, based on labels (Green, Yellow and Red), to classify and distinguish fiber optic networks from hybrid (copper mixed with fiber) and copper networks.

To support Agcom’s action, we at Open Fiber decided to launch our “Pay Attention to the Label!” campaign to accompany the user through the fiber-optic identification process.

True fiber optics has a green label.

This unit of measurement is often used, together with the megabit and the kilobit, in relation to time (in seconds) for calculating the transmission speed of digital signals, mainly used to calculate the speed of a data download. The Gbit/s is currently a widely used unit of measurement to refer to data transmission speed in computer networks. per second.
