During the FTTH Conference 2023, the FTTH Council Europe issued an updated version of its renowned FTTH Handbook, prepared by the Deployment and Operations Committee.
The FTTH Handbook is a resource for the fibre community. The FTTH Handbook covers every aspect of the network, from central office to subscriber equipment; from passive to active equipment choices, and encompasses all stages: planning, designing, building, and operations.
The 9th edition, launched in 2021, included a brand new section examining the scope and role of digital tools at all steps of FTTx network development. The current version includes a number of detailed revisions and updates focusing on topics such as aerial rollouts. Several companion publications, looking into topics such as combined fibre and 5G network synergies and In-Home Broadband experience, are now also available.
It also acts as a forum for sharing experiences and approaches, supporting those who aim to drive pure fibre networks across Europe.
