Fiber to the X (FTTX) a general term that uses fiber to provide all or part of for any broadband network architecture of telecommunications. Because fiber optic can transmit more data and have long-distance transmission characteristics than copper cables, the copper telephone network established in the 20th century is gradually being replaced by fiber.

The telecommunications industry is distinguished by the different configurations of FTTX. Currently, the most widely used terms are the following 4 types:

  • FTTH: The fiber reaches the life boundary of the end customer, such as the fiber optic distribution box on the outer wall of the house. Passive optical network and point-to-point Ethernet are the architectures that can provide triple-play services through the FTTH network directly from the operator's central office.

  • FTTB: Fiber reaches the boundary of large buildings, such as the basement in high-rise residential buildings, and establishes the final connection with each living space through a curb or pole technology.

  • FTTN / FTTLA: The fiber is terminated in a roadside cabinet several miles away from the user's location, and the final connection is a copper cable. FTTN is usually a transitional step towards full FTTH (Fiber to the Home) and is usually used to provide "advanced" triple-play telecommunication services.
