Abstract

Optical fiber-based in-building network solutions can outperform in the near future copper- and radiobased solutions both regarding performance and costs. POF solutions are maturing, and can already today be cheaper than Cat-5e solutions when ducts are shared with electricity cabling. Advanced signal modulation techniques allow high-capacity services over POF. With their extra features of multi-wavelength transport and routing, fiber solutions offer a higher network throughput and flexibility, and improved sustainability.
