Fiber to the Building (FTTB)

Definition – What does Fiber to the Building (FTTB) mean?

Fiber to the building (FTTB) is a type of fiber-optic cable installation where the fiber cable goes to a point on a shared property and the other cabling provides the connection to single homes, offices or other spaces. FTTB applications often use active or passive optical networks to distribute signals over a shared fiber-optic cable to individual households or offices.

Fiber to the building may also be known as fiber to the basement.
