Much as we would suspect, increases in fiber-optic broadband access increases value for multiple dwelling units (MDU) and for owners alike. This only makes sense as the growing prevalence of the internet has become ubiquitous and almost a staple of most households. A recent study commissioned by Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Council Americas found that  availability of fiber-optic broadband access to individual apartments will increase rental and property values in multiple dwelling units (MDUs) by 8% and 2.8%, respectively.

  • Consortium for On-Board Optics promises COBO-compliant optical modules at ECOC 2018
    The Consortium for On-Board Optics (COBO) says that Molex, a Ciena and SENKO team, TE Connectivity, Credo, and Applied Optoelectronics Inc. (AOI) will display at ECOC 2018 next week in Rome the first optical modules and related technology compliant with the group’s recently released specifications. As the name of the consortium implies, COBO has focused on development of specifications for onboard optical modules that can be installed on line cards near to related silicon. Use of such modules should improve transmission efficiency and improve faceplate density as transmission rates climb to 400 Gbps and higher, COBO members believe.
  • B2B interconnection bandwidth to grow to nearly 10X Internet traffic estimates: Equinix Global Interconnection Index
    Equinix (NASDAQ:EQIX), which supplies data center services globally, has released its second annual Global Interconnection Index (GXI), a market study in which Equinix analyzes worldwide traffic exchange. This year’s GXI estimates that private “Interconnection” bandwidth between businesses will grow to more than 8,200 Tbps by 2021. The figure, equivalent to 33 zettabytes of data exchange per year, is almost 10X what Cisco’s 2017 "Visual Networking Index" estimated for total Internet traffic at that time, Equinix points out.
