Fibre to the Business (FTTB)
Fibre to the Business (FTTB) is a term used to describe Fibre as a last mile service to businesses.
For years, many Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) have used Fibre as the backbone for their own core networks, predominantly for reliable backhaul. The connection from the end user, or business, to the ISP’s network is commonly known as the Last Mile. FTTB refers to using Fibre as the medium for the Last Mile connectivity.
Fibre is invulnerable to electromagnetic interference, severe weather conditions and is less vulnerable to theft. This makes it a fast and reliable Last Mile Connection.
As the name states, FTTB is the act of terminating Fibre from the Internet Service Provider’s network, directly into your business. Similarly, terms such as Fibre to the Exchange (FFTX) and Fibre to the Curb (FTTC) refer connectivity via Fibre from an ISP’s network to a central connectivity point of exchange. The Last Mile is typically a termination from your physical premises to an exchange, where a connection to the ISP’s network is made.
