Advantages of Optical Fiber

Optical fiber connections are more stable and efficient because they are less prone to technical interruptions and problems than the old copper lines, thus reducing maintenance costs and ensuring a higher quality of service for end customers.

Optical fiber networks are “ultra-broad”, like a road with 100 lanes where it is very difficult to find a traffic jam, and that’s why information travels faster. Moreover, access speeds are always guaranteed with FTTH fiber.

The telecommunications networks of the future (Next Generation Networks – NGN) travel on optical fiber because it has a very long useful economic life and a significantly higher transmission rate than traditional methods.

Optical fiber is the only future proof solution with an access transmission capacity of up to 40 Gbps in the future. Through FTTH technology, fiber reaches the home directly, ensuring compatibility with rapidly evolving network services.
