Fiber-to-the-Home Network Design

Fiber through the eye of a needle

There are a large number of different methods to design and build FTTH systems and none of them are necessarily wrong. In fact, each has its advantages and disadvantages and the support for each can take on a relgious fervor. Also, there are a large number of very important decisions that appear insignificant on the surface, but have a major impact on the overall cost of the project and the effectiveness of the resulting network. In most cases, the "best decision" is community- or market-specific and just because something works in one market, business model, or cost-recovery mechanism, that does not make it an optimal solution for all.
