FTTH: Delivering broadband to the customer

Trigon AG

With fiber optics directly to the customer: the future-proof network solution for private households


FTTH, or “fiber to the home”, provides fast, high-performance fiber optic connections to the Internet for private households. Already today, IP telephony, TV and music streaming or networked home technology require high bandwidths. New virtual reality applications in games, the Internet of Things (IoT) or cloud solutions are driving the demand for even more bandwidth. Private households are in no way inferior to companies when it comes to the demands on the transmission speed and quality of large data volumes.

Is your network ready for this next level of digitalization? Do you already offer your customers 10 Gbit/s and in-home Wifi? Whether for FTTB, FTTC or FTTH – with FTTx “fiber to the x” we offer solutions for home and business applications based on fiber optic cables.

Modern FTTH equipment for innovative network operators

No matter for which layer, we offer network infrastructure for Internet Service Providers (ISP), municipalities and utilities that build networks based on fiber optics:

  • Edge and core router
  • Service router (BNG)
  • Access switches layer 2 & layer 3
  • CPE Customer Premises Equipment
  • Provisioning software

We work with manufacturers who consider this business segment to be strategic. The routers, switches and CPEs are purpose-built – they were developed exactly for the respective application and are therefore technologically leading, reliable and easy to manage.

6 steps in the construction or expansion of FTTH networks

  1. Network capacity planning: for how many end users with how much bandwidth am I planning today and what are my expansion steps?
  2. Hardware requirements assessment: which FTTH equipment?
  3. Commercial test: how expensive is the equipment to maintain? Durability, reliability, provisioning, maintenance costs
  4. Hardware test: How easy is it to integrate the new devices into the existing network and to commission / provision them? Can the desired services be offered with the hardware?
  5. Implementation & rollout
  6. Staff training

Co-Founder and CTO Are you looking for solutions for your existing FTTH network or are you just starting out? We have solutions for both!

FTTx: the x defines the further procedure

With the aim of transporting the largest possible data volumes quickly at the lowest possible investment costs, we rely on modern FTTx components. The x defines the end of the network:

FTTH (fibre-to-the-home): Fiber optics lead directly into the apartment

FTTB (fibre-to-the-building) the glass fiber leads into the apartment building

FTTS (Fibre-to-the-street): the glass fiber ends shortly before the building

Satisfied customers

Our customers operate over 40,000 active FTTH connections in Switzerland and Germany. We have been supporting them in planning and implementing their networks since 2011.
