Fiber-to-the-Curb Banner Image

The installation and use of optical fiber cable directly to curbs near homes or businesses. Coaxial cable or another medium carries signals the short distance from the curb to the home or business. As such, this system is inexpensive to employ. The basic idea of fiber to curb technology is that suitable wires can carry high-speed signals at short distances. The twisted wire pairs or coaxial cables have acceptable bandwidth loss while sending signals only a few hundred feet. Also known as integrated fiber in the loop (IFITL).
