Go!Foton’s engineered Taps are efficient solutions for rural and medium density FTTH
deployments FTTH deployments in areas with low to medium subscriber density can cost
significantly more per home passed than in dense urban environment With distributed tap
architecture, fiber optics taps with a linear, daisy chain topology are used instead of
centralized splitters more commonly found with a traditional FDH Cabinet Furthermore, the
distributed tap architecture allows service providers to reach considerably more
subscribers while actually using less distribution fibers!
Imagine taking a fiber in a fiber optic cable, cutting it in the middle, and splicing a tap in
between. The optical signal passes through the tap and continues down the fiber while the
tap drops off a portion of the signal for locally connected subscribers. Multiple taps can be
placed down the line until the optical link budget is exhausted.
