The high demand for connectivity speed is greater than ever these days. Although it provides considerably faster connectivity speeds than those being offered by current DSL technologies, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) remains a costly and complex connectivity solution to roll out. FTTH aside, what other options can you look to in order to meet your connectivity needs?
Well, there’s G.fast, a new broadband access DSL standard that promises fiber-like speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s for loops shorter than 500 m, but without the hefty costs associated with installing FTTH. Alongside G.fast is a new optical infrastructure, fiber-to-the-distribution-point (FTTdp), which allows fiber to be installed closer to the subscriber but without breaking the bank.
Here are a few best practices to help you reach the speeds you need while ensuring that your network operates efficiently, which helps you avoid delays and costly repairs when the system is turned up.
