Broadband Bandwidth Solution with Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH)

Out of all the technologies and solutions, Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH), is the fastest and most reliable technology that provides "Triple-Play" services to businesses and residential homes. While "Wireless" networks continue to increase and improve, they still have the physical limitations such as slower speeds and limited radio frequencies. These limitations coupled with an increased wireless fixed cost, "debunks" the myth that wireless networks will eliminate fiber optic networks one day. Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) provides 69,000x times more data than the entire bandwidth delivered by a Wireless Tower! FTTH can also reach speeds that are greater than 200,000x times faster than wireless. 


Pushing technology to improve is the request for not only the downstream bandwidth to increase, but the upstream data and speed to improve based on the following deliverables - streaming videos, demand for larger content delivery, on-line buying power and website development to name a few. 


Precision Rated Optics (PRO) has offered a "Two-Prong" approach to provide a solution for the rapid growth of FTTH. 

  1. PRO provides professional training for installers and technicians in order for them to be the most efficient in their "Field of Play". 
  2. PRO has prepared an FTTH solution which allows the installer and technician the following functionality: Prepare the fiber, Splice the fiber, Clean the connector, Inspect the connector and Test the network by conveniently packing the equipment within one ruggedized Go-Kit backpack. 

As Passive-Optical-Network (PON) technology is being designed and deployed, it is imperative that the proper test & measurement tools are utilized. In addition, the correct processes must be implemented in order to have a successful install while maintaining maximum performance. 


Precision Rated Optics, (PRO), has developed the following FTTH product solution for the network build, maintenance and repair.

The Precision Rated Optics OFS-900 Fixed V-Groove Fusion Splicer has been specifically designed and optimized for FTTX fusion splicer applications. Its super-ruggedized rain, dust and shock resistant design means the OFS-900 can easily tolerate harsh working conditions that would instantly disable lesser units.
The FTP-1 OTDR is designed for FTTx applications. It can test the length, fiber loss, connector loss & other physical characteristics of fiber.
Rugged, reliable and designed as a "pass-through" device, the PON-301B "Triple-Play" PON meter can perform in-service testing of all PON signals (1310/1490/1550nm) from anywhere within the network. 
The use of a launch box effectively moves the Dead Zone away from crucial connections and splice points, providing your trace with accurate test results in areas where loss must be calculated.
Over 70% of network errors are caused by contaminated connectors.The contamination can be from dirt and debris on the end-face of the connector, or it can also be from scratches and defects during manufacturing and/or installation. Cleaning the connector is essential in either eliminating and/or reducing some of the known contamination that will effect and impair the network transmission. The PRO-CK-CLEAN-02 enables the technicians to prepare the fiber cable - from stripping and cleaning through inspection, connection and test.

OFL-301B Optical Fault Locator - Superior Troubleshooting
High-Performance Optical Fault Locating
OFL-301B Optical Fault Locator
The OFL-301B is a high-performance, easy-to-use diagnostic tool designed for fiber maintenance, locating faults and general troubleshooting. The OFL-301B utilizes much of the same technology used in an OTDR, such as a graphical representation of the fault location, but at a much lower price point than an OTDR.
