Why choose FTTHFTTH “Fiber to the Home” is the technology that connects POPs, located in exchanges, to end users’ property units with fiber optics. and ultra-fast 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. connection

The Open Fiber 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. guarantees optimum performance, ensuring access to all next-generation services.

Fiber optics: services for the home

Thanks to the ultra-broadband network, it is now also possible to manage High Definition (HDTV), Ultra HD (4K) or upcoming Ultra HD (8K) or Virtual Reality content quickly and easily, without delays, by connecting all devices simultaneously; from tablet to TV, computer and smartphone.

Do you already know all the services enabled by fiber optics?


No more films interrupted halfway through or slow connections during gaming sessions.

Cloud computingCloud computing Cloud computing is the new name for a practice that is as old as computer networks: using the computational resources of a geographically distant computer as if it were our own PC. The first and most long-standing example of this is e-mail. The technological evolution of computers and the speed of ultra-broadband networks makes it possible to take this approach to the extreme: remote data centres hosting thousands of servers, which store our documents, photos, music and run programmes that are seemingly located on our laptops or smartphones.

UploadUpload Uploading data online. as many gigabytes as you want in seconds with unlimited storage, listen to music or use many other on-cloud applications.

HOME AUTOMATIONHome automation Home automation is a field that studies technologies to improve quality of life in the home and automate its management as much as possible. It requires a strongly interdisciplinary approach since it combines architecture, building and energy engineering, electronics, IT and telecommunications. Home automation makes it possible to build a smart home in which, for example, switching on lights, opening doors and shutters, managing air conditioning, security systems and communication systems communicate internally or externally, including via mobile phones, smartphones and the Internet.

Control and management of the functions of the home with interconnected smart devices accessible from anywhere.

E-commerceE-commerce A contraction of ‘Electronic Commerce’, i.e. the buying and selling of goods and services directly on the web or via e-mail without going to shops and department stores. and online shopping

FTTH: services for professionals, companies and Public Administration

There are numerous services enabled by Open Fiber’s 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.

Do you know the differences between FTTH, 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. and 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.?

The benefits of fiber optics

Ultra-fast connections are more stable and efficient because they are less prone to interruptions and technical glitches than old-style copper cabling, thereby reducing maintenance costs and ensuring a higher quality of service for end users.

Fiber-optic networks are ‘ultra-wide’, like a 100-lane road where it is very difficult to find a traffic jam, and therefore information travels faster. Moreover, access speeds are always guaranteed with FTTH fiber optics.

The most advanced telecommunications networks (such as Next Generation Networks – NGNs) run on optical fiber because the latter has a very long service life and a significantly higher transmission speed than traditional methods.
