Torino, Italy, January 23, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Fiber to the Home (FTTH) networks are becoming very popular nowadays, since most telecommunication operators worldwide are planning to overcome the saturation of current xDSL based copper networks by deploying fibre networks within the forthcoming years.
However, massive deploying of FTTH networks is expected to be very expensive and operators are concerned about the return of the investment within short times.
A typical FTTH network reaching a multi-story/muti-customer building has a vertical optical backbone running from the basement to the top of the bulding, and then individual optical circuits cabled from each floor to customer outlets. Optical joints (named "splices") between the vertical cable fibres and the horizontal optical cables connecting the customers are expensive (need a specific "optical distribution box"), require skilled installers, and may be even unreliable if not made professionally.
Belconn's Optodaisy solution utilizes an innovative backbone optical cable which requires no splices to reach customers. Thanks to its "daisy" internal structure, each optical circuit can be individually selected, extracted from the cable and cabled directly to the customer outlet. No joints, no distribution boxes, no skilled personell. 'As easy as plucking daisy petals.'
