In an increasingly interconnected world, there is an increasing need for a reliable internet connection that allows us to browse, download files, watch streaming videos or play games without problems with slowdowns, buffering or lag. The optical fiber, used since the second half of the twentieth century in the medical, military and industrial fields, in recent years is becoming the indispensable tool for companies and families through which not only transmit information rapidly and safely, but also for entertainment, home automation or online trading.

There are several acronyms and acronyms that are used to define the architectures of broadband home networks that use optical fiber, the ones best known to the general public are mainly two: FTTC (fiber to the cabinet) and FTTH (fiber to the home), because they are those that are marketed by the various operators such as the offers offered by Enel Energia fiber. Then there are other technologies such as FTTA (fiber to the antenna), FTTN (fiber to the node), FTTR (fiber to the radio ) but they are less common and generally dedicated to particular industrial and commercial areas or destined for otherwise inaccessible locations. 

Knowing the main differences between the various abbreviations is useful for better understanding the effective quality of the connection that we will be faced with when we decide to join one of the fiber offers available in our area. 

FTTC Fiber

The FTTC mixed fiber, fiber to the cabinet, is a solution that guarantees good performance in navigation even if it suffers from the dispersion of signal, and therefore of the loss of speed due to the copper cable that is used in the final section of the connection. With the FTTC mixed copper optical fiber, in fact, the signal arrives from the telecommunication center up to the cabinet, or rather up to the cabinet placed on the street through a cable optical fiber, while the copper link is used from the cabinet to the home. 

This solution allows you to obtain download and upload speeds higher than a classic ADSL line, albeit lower than the speeds reached by FTTH fiber, while maintaining reliability and stability typical of this technology. In general, on websites, the FTTC mixed fiber is represented by a yellow identification sticker, introduced by the Italian Communications Authority (AGCOM) to make the type of fiber that you intend to activate.  

The FTTC fiber, mixed, therefore represents a good solution for families, students and workers who need a stable and reliable connection. Enel Naviga Smart uses FTTC mixed technology, in fact, it allows you to navigate up to 300 Mbps in download and 20 Mbps in upload.

Joining is simple, just connect to the main page of Fibra di Enel Energia, check the coverage and find out which Enel Energia fiber you are from  

FTTH Fiber

The FTTH fiber, fiber to the home, represents today the maximum in terms of download and upload speed, for latency times reduced to a minimum and for the reliability, stability and quality of the connection. 

With FTTH optical fiber, the connection between the control unit, cabinet and home takes place using entirely optical fiber cables, minimizing signal dispersion and consequently connection speed. On websites, the FTTH fiber is represented with the typical green dot.

The FTTH fiber therefore allows a fluid browsing experience, without sudden blocks and interruptions even when using many different devices at the same time, thanks to the speed up to 1 Gbps in download and 300 Mbps in upload that the new offer Fibra di Enel Energia can be reached with Enel Fibra. To proceed with the adhesion, it will be sufficient to check the coverage in your area and wait for the intervention of the technician who will wire the house.

FTTB Fiber

With the FTTB fiber, fiber to the building, we mean a fiber optic connection technology where the fiber cables are brought up inside the building and from there the connection inside the different apartments takes place using normal copper cables. 

FTTB fiber is used very often in urban contexts, so the fiber is distributed and shared among the various users of the building while maintaining a basic infrastructure that allows for a faster and more stable connection. 

The difference between a FTTB and a FTTC is in the where the link is installed, in the former within the condominium or office while for the second the connection terminates at the street cabinet (cabinet).
