Fiber to the X (FTTX) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 - 2026

Fiber to the X (FTTX) is the topology used in various optical fiber communications that are categorized based on where the optical fiber terminates. Fiber access is one of the most important technologies in the next-generation network. It increases the access layer bandwidth and builds a sustainable-development access layer network. Fiber optic cables are used for digital transmission of data, as they are hardly affected by internal and external interferences. Fiber optic cables can be made of high-quality glass (silica) or plastic. Furthermore, fiber optic cable networks offer superior broadband speeds to support a wide range of compelling, bandwidth-intensive services including high-definition videos, interactive gaming, and media-rich applications.

Fiber optic cable materials cover a wide range of applications such as communication, fiber optic sensors, illumination, and medical. A fiber optic cable comprises a core surrounded by a cladding. Based on network destination, FTTX can be categorized into several terminologies such as FTTH, FTTN, FTTC, FTTB, and FTTP. Various companies offer FTTX solutions for single-home residences (FTTH), buildings (FTTB), and offices (FTTO). These solutions offer less provisioning, reduced maintenance, and low operating costs.

A key factor driving the fiber to the X (FTTX) market is advanced multimedia services including Internet protocol television [IPTV], high-definition television (HDTV), video on demand (VoD), and ultra-high-bit-rate Internet access (50–100 Mb/s) as well as corporate broadband applications such as videoconferencing, hosted voice-over-IP (VoIP), and IP virtual private networks (VPNs). Moreover, adoption of fiber to the home (FTTH) broadband connections has highly increased across the world. More than 10 million people are anticipated to have adopted home broadband for basic consumer bandwidth uses such as e-mailing and peer-to-peer file sharing. However, the demand for bandwidth is rising at an exponential rate, which is driving the fiber to the X (FTTX) market. For instance, especially for the communication service provider’s network investments, fttx implementation play an increasingly critical role in driving performance. In view of the impact on capital investment, operational expenses, and overall performance; all key vendors are planning to optimize the networking technology. The growing trend of Internet-enabled devices and rising need for Internet connectivity are some of the major factors anticipated to drive the global Internet of things industry in the next few years. Restraints of the market include high expenditure required for building the FTTX infrastructure. Costs incurred for network upgrade and optimization of network solutions are high. Adoption of an advanced networking strategy is a major growth opportunity for market players.
