Making MDU Fiber to the Home (FTTH) implementations cost-effective

Posted by Simon Roberts

Finding the ideal fiber installation solution for Multi Dwelling Units (MDU), normally apartment blocks or hotels, is a major obstacle that carriers face as the pace of Fiber to the Home (FTTH) deployments increases to meet the ever increasing consumer demand for bandwidth.

Carriers have to be able to offer the same capacity and high speeds to consumers living in MDUs as they provide to those within Single Dwelling Units (SDU). However the longer deployment time and higher cost of implementing fiber to the MDU are putting a brake on the growth for in-building connections.

Delivering fiber to multiple dwellings

Posted by Martin Gossling

Buildings come in all shapes and sizes, from single houses to massive tower blocks or hotels with potentially hundreds of different apartments or rooms. Growing demand for faster connection speeds means that operators need to be able to deploy fibre networks to every flat in a Multiple Dwelling Unit (MDU) quickly, cost-effectively and with minimal disruption to householders. Further complicating matters, tenants in individual flats may sign up for fibre, rather than the whole block, potentially pushing up costs and installation complexity.

We’re seeing a huge increase in FTTP deployments to MDUs across the world, from the US to the Middle East and Europe. There are a huge range of different types of installations from a simple two rooms across by two floors high all the way up to tall but thin skyscrapers and wide but low residential buildings.
