Crazy Imagination on FTTH 2014
“Which technology would replace ADSL?”
Various answers come from different experts, as following:
“Fiber optical communication technologies, like FTTH PON.”
“Eventually, wireless everything!!”, “As started.. WiMax and go on..”
“Two options were predicted: FTTH with its advantages or Internet on the TV cable system.”
Conclusion, no matter in which telecom broadband development direction, fiber internet solution would be at least seized one of the positions. In this post, let’s try to take a crazy imagination on FTTH application, “over the top” in FTTH layers and market forecast analytics in 2014.

“Over the top”： FTTH layers
An FTTH network can comprise of a number of different layers: the passive infrastructure involving ducts, fibre, enclosures and other outside plants; the active network using electrical equipment; retail services, which provide internet connectivity and managed services, such as IPTV and not least, the end users. An additional layer can also be included: the content layer, located above the retail services layer and the end users. This can be exploited commercially by so-called “over the top” content providers. (-source:<FTTH_Business_Guide_2013>)
As the OTT service is more and more hot in mobile internet area, may be we can learn something fresh idea from this “over the top” lesson. Why not?
