Technology - Infrastructure - Last Mile 2 - Fibre - FTTP, Passive Optical Networks

Synopsis

Fibre to the Premises is the most advanced last-mile broadband technology, encompasses Fibre to the Home, Business and Building. We introduce the major standards organisations in this field and discuss the needs of customers and carriers. The PON architecture is described in detail, including its ability to carry a hundred or so RF analogue and digital video channels on a separate wavelength.
