Fibre-to-the-Premises FTTP Network

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

The nbn™ blog published a very informative article regarding FTTP that is definitely worth reading. The article is by Peter Ryan the Chief Network Engineering Officer at nbn Australia. It's evident the broadband rollout across the nation is a massive and complex undertaking that has numerous challenges. Moreover the issues such as distance and time with fibre rollout technology are outlined by Peter for a vast country.

"If you had to pick a country in the world where it would be most expensive to deploy a Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) network, Australia is always going to be very close to the top of that list.

The stats tell their own story, Singapore – which has a national FTTP network – has population density of 7,987 people per square kilometre and Hong Kong 6,442 people per square kilometre. Here in Australia we have the 14th-lowest population density in the world, with fewer than three people per square kilometre," by Peter Ryan, nbn.
