Microlink provides Fiber To The Home (FTTH) refers to a broadband telecommunication system based on fiber optic cables and associated optical electronics for delivery of multiple advanced services such as telephone, broadband internet and television to homes and businesses. This new communication medium will be provided by optical fiber systems to residential communities and commercial developments by partnering with multiple service providers. The entire living experience becomes intelligent when FTTH becomes available throughout the community. Astonishingly fast internet access coupled with delivery of high definition IPTV and voice over IP services are some of the tantalizing benefits of the FTTH technology over DSL, data card and broadband connections.

FTTH Core Network
The core network includes the internet service provider ISP equipments (typically BRAS and AAA server), PSTN (packet switched or the legacy circuit switched) and cable TV provider equipment.
The main function of the central office is to host the OLT and ODF and provide the necessary powering. Sometimes it might even include some (or all) of the components of the core network.
FTTH Feeder Network
The feeder area extends from optical distribution frames (ODF) in the central office CO to the distribution points. These points, usually street cabinets, called Fiber Disruption Frames FDT where level-1 splitters usually reside.
In the user area, drop cables, or level-3 fibers , are used to connect the level-2 splitter inside the FAT to the subscriber premises. Drop cables have less fiber count and length ranges up to 100 meters. Drop cables are designed with attributes such as flexibility, less weight, smaller diameter, ease of fiber access and termination.
FTTH Distribution Network
Distribution cable connects level-1 splitter (inside the FDT) with level-2 splitter. Level-2 splitter is usually hosted in a pole mounted box called Fiber Access Terminal FAT usually placed at the entrance of the neighborhood. In the design adopted by this paper level-2 splitter is 1:16, which means each FAT serves 16 homes.
