Fiber to the Curb (FTTC) Solutions
To transfer data and voice quickly and securely between the subscribers in communications and data networks, passive optical and copper network elements are just as important as the active distribution and switching systems themselves.
Fiber to the curb (FTTC) is an advanced hybrid fiber/copper network architecture that delivers increased broadband bandwidth capabilities beyond what traditional legacy copper networks offer.
The hybrid fiber/copper architecture uses optical fiber infrastructure deployed from the central switching center to the curb, then leverages the use of existing legacy copper infrastructure to the end subscriber.
We have the capabilities to support your network migration from legacy copper to fiber-to-the-curb to fiber-to-the-home infrastructures
Supporting migration with fiber-deep applications
Multiple System Operators (MSOs) networks are evolving, with fiber driving deeper into the network as operators move to a passive HFC network and utilize full fiber to the home deployment in greenfield builds.
Corning is ready to help you seize the opportunity in the next evolution of your network, wherever you are on the road to 10G.
Our deep understanding of fiber and HFC networks, and the steps necessary to evolve HFC or transition to full FTTH, enables our customers to best plan the future migration of their network.
Our understanding of the path to 10G is based on our years of experience helping MSOs evolve their networks. Whether you want to drive fiber towards a Node+0 or flip a switch on fiber to the home, Corning can deliver.
We’re constantly working to help MSOs increase the velocity and speed of deployments, as well as enable the full capabilities of their networks, while also reducing the total cost of ownership for our customers.
This in turn increases MSOs ability to monetize their network across all platforms, including RF Broadband, Inside Plant (ISP) and the coming wave of 5G and 10G.
MSOs are faced with tough challenges on how to evolve their networks, and together we create solutions that help MSOs become ready for the demand of today while building for the future of tomorrow.
