FTTH: A Catalyst for Sustainable Action

Swipe left to see all categories

When shifting from copper to fibre access, operators may lack the relevant information on the impacts that their choices from the fibre menu have.

While they may be inclined to focus on profitability, the environmental impact of their operations must be weighed up carefully before fully deploying FTTH technology.


The white paper sheds light on the immense impact that the shift from copper to FTTH will have on the ability to meet the European or national environmental sustainability goals.

It provides a deeper insight into the environmental impact of fibre-access technologies and into the adverse effects wrong FTTH choices can have on the environment.

In addition, it draws attention to often overlooked caveats of fibre-access trends and technologies, and the notable effect that even small differences can have.

Download the white paper to learn:

  • What is the carbon footprint of copper-based access technologies – such as HFC and VDSL – per individual end user, and how fibre technologies rank against them;
  • What are the specific carbon-dioxide emissions of FTTH technologies – specifically, GE/10GE P2P, GPON and XGS-PON – per user, per annum;
  • What are the environmental impacts of a wrong choice from the fibre menu.

The white paper will arm you with the tools to gain insight into the effects of your operations, and what it takes to neutralise your CO2 emissions.
