What happens next?

Alpine Communications FTTH Project Alpine will construct fiber optic network that will reach all homes and businesses in Elkader and Guttenberg Winter 2007 – preparation for construction Spring 2007 – construction begins All homes and businesses with service from Alpine will cut over to new fiber service by the end of the year The project is funded through support from the Universal Service Fund established over 10 years ago to help rural communications providers offer advanced services to their customers.

Winter 2007 – preparation for construction

Spring 2007 – construction begins

All homes and businesses with service from Alpine will cut over to new fiber service by the end of the year

The project is funded through support from the Universal Service Fund established over 10 years ago to help rural communications providers offer advanced services to their customers.

What is FTTH? FTTH technology allows telecommunications services to be transported over fiber optic cables. Fiber cables are made up of glass strands the approximate thickness of a strand of hair. Pulses of light transport data over the glass.

Pulses of light transport data over the glass.

What is FTTH?

What is FTTH? Fiber-optic communications is based on the principle that light in a glass medium can carry more information faster over longer distances than electrical signals can carry in a copper or coaxial medium. The purity of today's glass fiber, combined with improved system electronics, enables fiber to transmit digitized light signals well beyond 100 km (60 miles) without amplification. With few transmission losses, low interference, and high bandwidth potential, optical fiber is an almost ideal transmission medium. Fiber optic technology is future-proof.

How Does This Benefit Us? Fiber networks provide 100 times more bandwidth per home or business than any other networks including cable, wireless, or copper. Increased bandwidth means virtually unlimited capacity to bring telephone, Internet, digital television, and other services to subscribers – with very high quality and reliability.

Increased bandwidth means virtually unlimited capacity to bring telephone, Internet, digital television, and other services to subscribers – with very high quality and reliability.

Is More Always Better? With wider bandwidth more information can be carried. Increased bandwidth means more services can be carried over the same network which means business productivity increases. The next slides will delve further into the benefits of a fiber network.
