The FTTH Council Europe has revealed the first edition of the In-home Broadband Excellence (IBE) Guide, which outlines the best possible solutions to get from the fibre entry point to the end-user. 

The guide aims to give communication service providers (CSPs) an overview about the different possibilities, provide various options to choose from, and help find the right solutions that would be best adapted to the specific needs of the end-users. It brings together both technology and business aspects, focusing on three fundamental questions:  

STL’s Opticonn, a purpose-engineered, end-to-end, 5G-ready optical networking solution, has recently been enhanced with the company’s acquisition of Optotec

ZTE has released the prototype of an Optical Network Unit (ONU) that can support both 50G PON and Wi-Fi 7 technologies at the FTTH Conference 2022 in Vienna, Austria.

Corning has expanded its MiniXtend cable portfolio with the introduction of MiniXtend HD cables for 12 to 72 fibres, enabling use in microducts with 6mm inner diameter and MiniXtend XD cables for 192 and 288 fibres.
