This plan has been developing since 2013, is gaining momentum and will take several years to complete.

FTTH COUNCIL

Setics is also involved at the European level by participating since 2014 in the FTTH COUNCIL Europe: a European association aimed at accelerating the availability of ultra-high speed access networks by fibre optic for the benefit of consumers and businesses.

In 2017, this international exhibition was held in France, in the heart of Marseille. The first day, centred on a series of workshops, allowed many speakers to respond to specific problems in the sector: how to deploy and connect areas with low population density? What software should be used to facilitate network creation? What services to associate with the THD connection of companies? The next two days gave visitors and professionals the opportunity to meet at the exhibitors' stands, as well as the opportunity to attend various conferences.

Some figures for this edition:

  • 3000 participants from 84 countries
  • 14 conferences
  • 9 workshops
  • 155 speakers
  • 120 exhibitors and partners
  • 50+ media representatives and journalists

This event highlights the existence of a strong interest in the development of fibre and FTTH across Europe. The companies presented their products and innovations, thus giving the participants an idea of the progress of fibre deployment on the continent. Numerous equipment manufacturers were present, as well as engineering and consulting firms, manufacturers and software publishers.

In Europe, the number of FTTH and FTTO (fibre to the office) subscribers increased by 23% in 2016. The rate of connectable households reached 17%, i. e. nearly 148 million households in September 2016. Among the best pupils, Latvia has a 45% FTTH/FTTO penetration rate, followed closely by Sweden and Lithuania (about 40%).

For its part, France is ranked 19th with only 11.1% of THD penetration rate, but does not hide its ambitions: to pursue intensive deployments throughout its territory, including in rural areas, to become the first European country to connect these zones in THD. In fact, France has developed an unprecedented experience in the field of FTTH equipment for less densely populated areas: government plan, participation of local and regional authorities, public-private partnerships, wholesale operators, etc. At the heart of the FTTH Conference's attention, France is beginning to export this knowledge internationally. Connecting less densely populated areas is indeed becoming a major challenge for all European countries.

The workshop "FTTH in France" helped to enhance this situation, while honouring our country: presentation of the French model in terms of deployment of public and private fibre optic networks; support of projects by the Plan France Très Haut Débit;...

Setics, a major player in engineering processes and innovation with new tools such as Setics STTAR, is present each year as a partner member of FTTH COUNCIL.

The FTTH Conference 2017 has been a great success: it has made it possible to strengthen the links between telecoms and FTTH players, promoting exchanges at both national and international level. 

See you next year for its 15th edition in Valencia, Spain, from 13 to 15 February 2018!
