IS-2005-09: Centralized Telecommunications Rooms Offer Economy, Security, Serviceability
Changes in the services delivered over cabling infrastructure in Multi Dwelling Units (MDUs) such as high-speed Internet access and digital High-Definition Television (HDTV) have led to changes in building design and construction. This paper from InfiniSys Inc. presents a proprietary technology, FTTA™ (Fiber to the Apartment) for installing small-diameter conduits in apartment buildings.
