Global Fiber-to-the-Home/Building (FTTH/B) Market to Reach US$29.7 Billion by the Year 2026


Fiber optic networks hold a crucial role in supporting emerging technologies including mobile computing, the cloud, high-quality video and IoT owing to their ability to deliver highest-speed data transfer rates. Fiber-to-the-home/building (FTTH/B) is one of the primary formats of these networks where a fiber cable reaches to a shared property while the other cabling offers Internet connection to single offices, homes or other spaces. FTTH/B applications rely on passive and active networks for distributing signals over shared fiber optic cable to single offices or homes. The fiber optic technology is finding increasing adoption across households, businesses and industries owing to its several benefits over traditional connectivity solutions. The technology is particularly suitable for organizations using the cloud for storing data and apps. Based on its enhanced bandwidth and speed, FTTH/B networks are used in companies for transmission of heavy files and streaming HD content. The technology is a suitable option to support tasks such as video or web conferencing and teleconferencing for employee training, sales and marketing. The FTTH/B connection allows companies to push investments in video conferencing as an effective business platform without compromising over bandwidth and speed.
