fibre optic technology is widely considered to be the fastest and most reliable
way to access the internet. As Europe invests in fibre connectivity, we’re
seeing the opportunity for a wide range of services and applications that will
improve businesses’ efficiency and productivity, as well as our overall home
example, Vodafone recently signed a partnership with Cityfibre to build
high-speed broadband networks to as many as 5 million United Kingdom homes,
according to The Times.
This complements investments by Openreach and other providers working
towards a full fibre network, so that the world’s sixth largest economy can enjoy the benefits that fast,
reliable broadband offers.

Europe heads toward a gigabit society, the next generation of citizens will expect
to compete and thrive on the world stage.
Connected health, transport, and farming will be as common as having
access to electricity while the demand for performance will continue, from
bandwidth to batteries, across every technological dimension.
are a ways Europe can drive smarter connectivity based on what I’ve been
hearing from our customers and industry partners.
Governments are making robust communications a
increasing speed and bandwidth, smart connectivity between people and
increasingly intelligent devices will have a vast impact on our lifestyle and
economy. For example, critical safety
services for controlling autonomous transportation will require a symmetrical,
low-latency, unrestricted broadband utility architecture, both in the fibre
backbone and the access network.
Today’s fibre technology can ease
connectivity complexity, aid in rapid deployment and speed new service
rollout. Now more than ever, installing
and maintaining large amounts of fibre can be done faster and more cost
utilities are going broadband
electrical utilities recognize the digital economy as a key pillar of
future growth and competiveness on the world stage. These companies see the Internet as a
utility, building and owning an open-access FTTH infrastructure and leasing it
to partners- who in turn, offer retail internet and other services to
SIRO is the only network in Ireland that uses the existing electricity
network to provide fibre broadband to homes and business, enabling speeds of 1
gigabit per second. As SIRO rolled out its network, they faced the
challenge of building FTTH on top of a live electrical distribution
system. SIRO teamed with CommScope, who provided industry expertise and
products which reduced costs and protected
against the elements.
Convergence is improving the ROI of FTTH
As consumer demand for
data increases, network operators must increase wireless capacity. The
use of multiple communication modes on a single network offers convenience and flexibility that are not possible
with separate infrastructures.Networks can and will merge into one, saving operator operating
expenses (OpEx) and capital expenditures (CapEx) as equipment requirements also
fibre access terminals portfolio offers plug-and-play connectivity for faster deployments and lower
installation costs by minimizing
time-consuming splicing and reduced OpEx cost by increased reliability.
fibre will become a key component for businesses across the region, with
companies even more under pressure to deliver on a global scale. With that in mind,
it is critical that everyone has the same access to the opportunities enabled
