Fiber Cable Manufacturer
Fiber to the home is recognized as the ideal access network, but the separate business model has hindered the development of the industry. This is not only a matter of price and technology, but more importantly, the development process of FTTH is affected by different paces due to the different fields and sectors involved. Therefore, appropriate policy support is conducive to easing development pressure.
Unfortunately, progress has been slow. According to a recent study by FTTH Counc, by the end of 2007, there were 14 countries and regions in the world where FTTH/B penetration rate exceeded 1%, three more than in July 2007, but China still did not rank among them.
"It's not all about price, technology, but more importantly, the different sectors and sectors involved in FTTH have also affected the development of FTTH." An insider who asked not to be named told reporters.
The development of optical fiber to the home is the general trend
In the domestic market, ADSL is still the mainstream of broadband access network, which is determined by the cost and business demand. Judging from the development of ADSL, this access mode really solves the problem of public broadband Internet access. At the broadband access level, however, the next generation of networks is bound to be fiber-optic to the home.
"This is mainly due to the higher bandwidth requirements of converged services. Optical fiber communication has the characteristics of wide frequency band, large capacity, low cost per unit bandwidth, high quality video, green and environmental protection, etc. Its use can better adapt to the development needs of fusion business in the access link. "Said xu junqi, an expert at the telecommunications research institute of the ministry of industry and information technology. In other words, FTTH access is more suitable than existing DSL broadband access for some existing or upcoming broadband services and applications, including teleconferencing, video phone, video on-demand, IPTV, online games, remote education and telemedicine.
On the other hand, fiber to the home can not only provide greater communication bandwidth, but also enable multiple operators to access users equally through one fiber, which can not only enable users to have the right to truly choose network operators independently, but also avoid the waste of resources caused by repeated construction. Therefore, the development of optical fiber to the home has been the general trend.
At present, although fiberhome communication, zhongtian and other manufacturers make every effort to promote FTTH, FTTH still seems to be isolated. At the same time, high construction cost, still not rich content, not yet large-scale industrial environment and other factors that FTTH cannot compete with 3G. However, there is no doubt that under the preheating environment of FTTH, it has become the consensus of more and more manufacturers to seize this market opportunity as soon as possible.
Current development motivation is insufficient
At present, fiber to the home has been the general trend, but because of the construction cost, policy constraints and other factors seriously hindered the development of the industry.
High construction cost is considered to be a major factor affecting the large-scale commercial use of FTTH. On the one hand, FTTH is 1.5 to 2.5 times more expensive than ADSL in terms of comprehensive construction cost of equipment and wiring construction. It is hard to get fibre to the home market by operators alone.
On the other hand, the cost of optical fiber will not decrease until it is widely used in the market. But the pace of progress is still slow, "mainly because of the upfront investment." Zhu jinzhou, an expert at the telecommunications research institute of the ministry of industry and information technology, said.
"It needs to be explained that FTTH and the integration of the three networks interact positively, complement and develop each other. On the one hand, fiber to home FTTH can promote the evolution of the integration of the three networks, and promote the reform of the system from the bottom up through the development of the market, because the unified network requires unified supervision; On the other hand, the development of FTTH requires a wealth of broadband services, such as multimedia services of the nature of three-network integration, otherwise FTTH is likely to fall into the situation of making bricks without straw. "Continued junqi.
The cable TV network of radio and television and the cable broadband access network of telecom have great difficulty to enter each other in a short time. In addition, the system, policy, number of users and consumption habits of users will inevitably lead to the fact that these two types of business systems coexist for a long time, which directly leads to the slow development of the integration of the three networks and also becomes the main reason affecting the development of FTTH. Therefore, many experts believe that the coordination of interests between departments has become an urgent problem for FTTH.
Policy traction to accelerate the pace of promotion
According to the introduction, the global fiber to the home development of the three countries are relatively good, Japan, South Korea, the United States. The reason why these three countries development of optical fiber to the home is good, is because the government to give considerable support, not only list the overall development plan, but also in terms of fiscal support, tax preferential tilt, further defined the support of policy, through the guidance of government funds invested all fiber access project.
Thus, the policy support is conducive to the development of industry. In fact, the reason why wuhan fiber to the home can become the leader in China is closely related to the local government's emphasis on FTTH promotion. It is understood that wuhan every installation of a fiber optic, the government will subsidize certain policy funds. Therefore, fiber to the home Asia Pacific committee permanent director zhang mu believes that policy reasons are often more important than price and content applications. "Local government agencies such as wuhan will actively promote FTTH application, which will undoubtedly promote FTTH development in the region, but a national plan is needed to truly promote the development of fiber optic home industry."
, according to ministry web site for the implementation of the state council about accelerate the construction of broadband in China, speed up the popularization of the optical fiber as "requirements, pushing forward the construction of the optical fiber to the home ministry of communication development to organize the formulation of the optical fiber to the home communication facilities in residential area and residential construction engineering design code" and "the optical fiber to the home communication facilities in residential area and residential construction engineering construction and acceptance standard" two national standards, and is scheduled for April 1, 2013.
The standard mainly stipulates the following mandatory requirements :(1) in the urban areas at or above the county level where the public telecommunication network has realized optical fiber transmission, the communication facilities of newly-built residential areas and residential buildings shall be constructed by means of optical fiber to households; (2) the project design of optical fiber to household communication facilities in residential areas and residential buildings must meet the requirements of equal access of multiple telecom business operators and users' free choice of telecom business operators; (3) underground communication pipelines, distribution pipe networks, telecommunication rooms, equipment rooms and other communication facilities in newly-built residential areas and residential buildings must be constructed and checked and accepted simultaneously with residential areas and residential buildings.
The establishment and promulgation of mandatory national standards for the construction of fiber to the home is an important basis for solving the problems of broadband construction in residential communities, promoting the joint construction and sharing of communication facilities in residential communities, and promoting the construction of fiber to the home. It is of great significance to accelerate the development of broadband network and implement the broadband project in China. In order to do a good job in the standard implementation, implementation supervision and other work.
According to C114, before the official release of the national standard, some provinces have made relevant regulations. The release of the national standard is expected to solve a series of difficulties faced by FTTH construction, especially the "last kilometer" access, and help promote the development of FTTH nationwide.
