This book is about the latter of these enduring options; actually about one rapidly evolving aspect of the latter, ﬁber to the home. When we speak of “ﬁber to the home” (FTTH), we mean to include also ﬁber to the user’s premises (FTTP) and ﬁber to the business (FTTB) – any situation where the optical path in the ﬁber runs all the way to individual end-user premises. This might be a single residence, single multidwelling unit (MDU), or a single business establishment, and the ﬁber path might enter the building or terminate elsewhere on the premises. What is not included in FTTH is any situation where electronics are interposed along the path from central “head end” to user’s premises. In other words, we deal here with OOO situations, not OEO – with a form of “all optical network” (O for optical, E for electronic).
