An Internet café is a place which provides Internet access to the public, usually for a fee. These businesses usually provide snacks and drinks, hence the café in the name. The fee for using a computer is usually charged as a time-based rate.

Evolution of Internet café

  Internet cafés are a natural evolution of the traditional café. Cafés started as places for information exchange, and have always been used as places to read the paper, send postcards home, play traditional or electronic games, chat to friends, find out local information. Cafés have also been in the forefront of promoting new technologies, for example, the car in 1950s California.

  As Internet access is in increasing demand, many pubs, bars and cafés have terminals, so the distinction between the Internet café and normal café is eroded. In some, particularly European countries, the number of pure Internet cafés is decreasing since more and more normal cafés offer the same services.

  Typical demands of Internet cafes are high-rate Internet private line access and voice service access. The access rates are 10 Mbit/s, 20 Mbit/s and 100 Mbit/s. Internet cafes are not usually clustered but are more often geographically scattered. They require a network system with a large service area capability. Therefore, FTTx becomes the first choice for most Internet cafes.

  The FOT OLT fully meets the requirements of both data and voice services. It satisfies the requirement to obtain high-rate Internet private line service and voice service through a single fiber, and performs uniform management by the same network platform. See following figure for the Internet cafe application diagram.

  Internet cafés are located worldwide, and many people use them when traveling to access webmail and instant messaging services to keep in touch with family and friends. Apart from travelers, in many developing countries Internet cafés are the primary form of Internet access for citizens as a shared-access model is more affordable than personal ownership of equipment and/or software.

  A variation on the Internet café business model is the LAN gaming center, used for multiplayer gaming. Data and voice services from multiple Internet cafes are aggregated at one FOT OLT via a splitter.

  • For medium and large sized Internet cafes, the FOT GEPON ONU/MDU CPE terminals series are recommended.
  • For small-sized Internet cafes, the Giga network ONT terminals are recommended.
