The guidelines also make it clear that publicly funded broadband networks should support effective and full unbundling and satisfy all different types of network access that operators may seek (including but not limited to access to ducts, fibre, and bitstream transport. History of fiber optics fiber optics go back as far as roman times, but the first was an optical telegraph, which allowed operators to relay a message from one tower to the next by a series of lights mounted on the towers. However, optical fiber is still moving into the local loop, and through technologies such as fttx (fiber to the home, premises, etc) and pons (passive optical networks), enabling subscriber and end user broadband access.
The coverage of broadband service is mapped by access technologies such as dsl, fibre, cable and wireless in addition to speed tiers (eg 1 mbit/s to 15 mbit/s, second lowest speed tier of less than 10-20 mbit/s, mid-speed tier of less than 50 mbit/s, etc. The most comprehensive fiber optic, telecommunication, wireless, fttx and broadband technologies conference of its kind nfoc attracts world-class manufacturers, distributors and industry professionals from across the nation, and features a multitude of product demonstrations, hands-on training and professionally presented learning sessions.
