Access network terminology October 5, 2006

Posted by Jasper in broadband, Technology.

The Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Councils of Asia Pacific, Europe, and North America have announced completion of a new resource to provide worldwide standardization of terminology used in the FTTH industry. The mission of the FTTH Councils includes the communication to stakeholders in their respective regions of the extent of usage of FTTH throughout the world and forecasting the growth of FTTH. According the the Councils this task has been made difficult by the proliferation of terms and acronyms that lack precise definitions. Accordingly they have published a Definition of Terms.

The document provides definitions for commonly utilized industry terms describing access network terminology. It can be downloaded here.

Good to see this type of initiative. Different interpretations of terms can create endless misunderstandings and promote fruitless discussion.
