Driven by unprecedented demand for Gigabit and fast-emerging 10 Gigabit Broadband, Fiber to the Home (FTTH) deployment is expected to reach record numbers in the coming years. According to iDate, FTTH connections will more than double in Europe over the next six years, while RVA forecasts that FTTH investment in North America will double in the next five years compared to the previous five. In addition to homes, service providers are bringing fiber to the living unit in multiple dwelling units (MDUs) and into commercial and institutional buildings.

In for the skill

There's a shortage of skilled fibre professionals in Europe. How can we, as an industry, work towards addressing this? Keely Portway finds out 

Up to standards

In the third instalment of our multimode fibre series, Keely Portway looks at how some of the latest standards demonstrate multimode's continuing relevance

MULTIMODE FIBER IN THE ENTERPRISE - A STANDARDS UPDATE

This article is brought to you by: 

Enterprise network customers and vendors - in fact, the entire data communications industry - benefit from interoperable, multivendor industry standards developed by the interaction and coordination between Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) component/fiber standards, American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/TIA and International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/IEC structured cabling standards and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Ethernet and InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) Fibre Channel application standards.

The future's bright

Keely Portway evaluates some of the latest trends when it comes to multimode fibre, and looks at why it is currently something of an industry bright spot
