The Fiber to the X (including FTTB/ FTTC/ FTTH/ FTTN/ FTTP - fiber running all the way to the building/curb, cabinet, home, node, or premises) is a broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications. The major benefit is to carry massive amount of data, including video, voice, and big data, at high speeds over long distances. Copper cables used in traditional telephone lines and DSL cannot meet such a requirement.
According current market research, the global fiber optics market is expected to grow between 2014 and 2019 to reach a value of $3.0 billion at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1%. Asia-Pacific is projected to be the biggest market for fiber optics on account of the growing demands from the end-user industries. Progress in FTTx applications is one of the main reasons for the rapid growth of fiber optics market in this region.
