Bandwidth Demand / FTTO Solutions
The number of applications on a network increases from year to year. New applications are permanently in preparation. Server Virtualization, Cloud Computing, IP-telephony, video conferences, Blade servers are only some of the drivers for ever increasing bandwidth.
A scalable infrastructure forms the basis to guarantee the network performance, for today’s and tomorrow’s applications. Due to the on demand scalability, fibre is the best medium. The Fibre To The Office (FTTO) concept combines the advantages of fibre with the requirements for flexibility, cost-efficiency and interoperability of modern enterprise networks.
