Electrical enclosures specialists Rainford Solutions provides custom designed outdoor street cabinets to house complex fibre solutions for broadband networks. There are generally two different types of fibre optic broadband connections referred to as FTTC (Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) and FTTH (Fibre-to-the-Home). Fibre optic cables are used to help increase the speed of broadband connections for both home users and business users.
FTTC (Fibre-to-the-Cabinet) is also known as Fibre-to-the-Kerb, involves running a fibre optic cable from a telephone exchange to an outdoor streetside cabinet which is then connected to a standard phone line to provide broadband to home or business users.
FTTH (Fibre-to-the-Home) is also known as FTTP (Fibre-to-the-Premises), involves running a fibre optic cable the full distance from a telephone exchange right to the home or premises delivering an end-to-end full fibre optic connection.
