fiber to the premises (FTTP)

Fiber to the Premises (FTTP) is a connection concept with which the property or the company premises are connected to the local exchange via optical fiber. FTTP thus extends into the customer's connection area.

With FTTP, there is a fiber-optic connection between the exchange and the termination point, which may be located in the office building. The underlying architecture can be a passive optical network( PON), or a point-to-point connection via switched Ethernet. With these technologies, data rates of 2.5 Gbit/s can be transmitted, divided among the number of end users. So that realistically 100 Mbit/s are available at the local loop.

FTTP has enormous advantages over existing copper-based broadband cabling. It supports all broadband and real-time services and offers high quality of service. This applies to both the downstream and the upstream, which is subject to certain bandwidth restrictions in broadband cables.
