FTTN: Fiber to the Node & Fiber to the Cabinet: Lightwave Online

FTTN/C

Fiber to the node (FTTN) and fiber to the curb or cabinet (FTTC) are interim steps toward full FTTH. Both FTTN and FTTC combine fiber to a point near the subscriber; copper links leveraging some form of DSL, such as VDSL2, usually handle the rest. Here you’ll find FTTN and FTTC news, products, and application information.
