There are a lot of smart devices at home, and you want your smart home to work perfectly? Internet speed limits the demand for extremely fast downloads and uploads? You have upgraded gigabit broadband but can’t enjoy the gigabit network because you don’t know about device updates?
FTTR: I am sincere to you, I am your solution, your only solution!
FTTR comes with a networking solution that covers the whole house, is high-speed and stable, and supports 10 Gigabit networks. From then on, every corner of the home can enjoy stable Gigabit Internet access. In the future, there will be no pressure to watch 8K videos, and upgrading to 10 Gigabit network is even easier.
01. Why is FTTR so good?
FTTR (Fiber to The Room) technology refers to replacing network cables with optical fibers, laying optical fibers to each room, and deploying optical networking terminals to realize interconnection with home gateways, combined with dual-band Wi-Fi, to ensure network coverage throughout the house networking technology.
At present, most families adopt the FTTH networking solution. FTTH (Fiber to The HOME) technology refers to installing the optical network unit (ONU) at the user’s home.
Comparing FTTH and FTTR
A typical FTTH network consists of four types of equipment: optical fibers, optical network units, routers, and network cables.
Optical fiber: connect to the OLT upward, and provide an interface to connect to the user’s optical network equipment downward.
Optical network unit: converts optical signals into electrical signals according to relevant protocols and interfaces, and connects routers and wired networks downward.
Router: Read the address in the data packet and determine the transmission path, and play the role of network management in the network. A router connects multiple network devices.
Network cable: connect network equipment, common network cables include twisted pair and coaxial thin cable. The coaxial thin cable connection is simple and troublesome to maintain, and the twisted pair is easy to maintain but the cost is high.
FTTH network diagram:
FTTR network consists of five types of equipment: master optical modem, slave optical modem, optical splitter, optical fiber, and optical fiber panel. Among them, the master optical modem and slave optical modem are all-in-one machines with Wi-Fi6 routing functions.
Main optical modem: connect upward to OLT through XG (S)-PON or 10G EPON, undertake Gigabit/10G fiber-to-the-home, and provide downward interface to connect to optical routing.
Slave optical modem: connect upward to the main optical modem through indoor optical fiber, and provide Internet service for terminals downward.
Optical splitter: realize the coupling, branching and distribution of optical signals.
Optical Fiber: Realize long-distance optical signal transmission. PS: When using the original network cable to upgrade FTTR, it is required that the house access broadband uses a super-category 5 or 6 cable. If a 5-category network cable is used, 8 cores are required.
Fiber optic panel: Complete the access and port output of the dual-core optical fiber, meet the requirements of the bending radius of the optical fiber, and provide safe protection for the fiber core.

If you currently rent a house alone or have few terminal devices at home, you may say that I don’t need FTTR networking yet.
Then, will FTTR networking have advantages over other mainstream networking methods with larger spaces?
Here we compare AC+AP networking, Mesh networking, and FTTR networking from five dimensions.
AC (Wireless AccessPoint Controller) is the wireless controller, which connects the wireless LAN to the control device and manages all wireless APs in the wireless network. AP management includes: parameter configuration, wireless user authentication, broadband access, etc.
AP (WirelessAccessPoint) is the wireless access point, connecting the wireless network and the client.
Enterprises mostly use AC+AP networking. With the development of Wi-Fi technology, AC+AP networking can also be used to achieve home network coverage. Schematic diagram of AC+AP networking:
Use Mesh-supporting routers for hybrid networking to extend the signal to places where there is demand.
Mesh networking is often used in medium-sized houses and houses without reserved network cables. Schematic diagram of Mesh networking:
FTTR networking uses the characteristics of large optical fiber transmission bandwidth, no signal attenuation, and strong anti-interference ability to break through the network speed bottleneck of the original network cable, so that every corner of every room can achieve stable “true Gigabit”, and it will be upgraded to 10 Gigabit in the future The network also does not need to replace the line.
If you want to upgrade from the current network to the FTTR network, you don’t need to worry about the most troublesome network cable laying in the traditional network. The optical fiber can be installed invisible without destroying the original decoration and layout of the home, and other all-optical devices can be deployed as needed.
If you want to implement Gigabit Internet in your new house, of course it couldn’t be easier. Upgrading packages, deploying optical fibers, and installing all-optical products are simple steps similar to typical FTTH networking, but you can quickly enjoy Gigabit networks with all-optical products. One-click to solve the current Internet pain points, one step to achieve high-speed and stable network, FTTR networking has been connected to the future, are you excited?
