A modern fibre optic network enables high-speed surfing on the Internet and data transfer rates of the highest speed between company locations. A high level of reliability with a large capacity reserve is guaranteed. Modern fibre optic cables measure less than 1/10 the thickness of a human hair. With these, around 100 billion telephone calls can be made concurrently, and even large amounts of data can be transferred simultaneously without any problems. The technology uses close to light speed of 300,000 km/s for fibre optic transmission. If all the technical requirements are met, the fibre optic technology can therefore achieve immense speeds in data transmission. The closer the fibre is to the end client; the more speed can be achieved for him. In the best case, the fibre ends directly at the end client, so that no copper connections need to be used at all.
Using older DSL technology, which provides around 16 Mbit/s, the connection to the fibre optic network is still at the main distributor, whereas access using the more recent VDSL occurs at the exchange on the side of the road. That is why VDSL technology is also called FTTC (Fibre to the Curb). Speeds of 50-100 Mbit/s can be achieved. FTTD (Fibre to the Desk), FTTH (Fibre to the Home) and FTTB (Fibre to the Building) currently provide the fastest connections, since the fibre optic network is installed here directly in the building, in the office or at the desk. The data path either no longer runs via copper wires at all (FTTD) or sometimes only for a very short distance (FTTH, FTTB).
TelemaxX has been operating its own fibre optic backbone since 1999. By now, more than 2,400 kilometres of own fibre optic lines have been laid in circular, redundant structures. In addition, approx. 53 Telekom switching centres (HVTs) and 50 own POPs have been integrated into this network. In Frankfurt redundant channels exist at the DE-CIX and at the "Kleyer 90" location. Network connections with almost all well-known carriers also make it possible to establish connections beyond TelemaxX's regional network area – almost all over the world.
Fibre optic network is the technology of the future
The advantage of fibre optic technology lies not only in the possibility of enormous speed. Above all, its high capacity makes the fibre optic network the technology of the future. The development of recent years shows a rapidly increasing need for data transfer rates – in both the private and business environment. More and more applications rely on fast data connections. In a normal household or office, many devices are connected to the data network at the same time. Computers, mobile phones, TVs and tablets are constantly accessing the Internet. Streaming services further increase hunger for data. The upper limit is far from being reached today. The fibre optic network alone offers enough capacity to cover future needs.
TelemaxX offers highly available connections
Within our TelemaxX fibre optic network, we provide transmission rates from 2 Mbit/s up to 100 Gbit/s. As a high-performance Internet provider, TelemaxX takes your company to the "World Wide Web" directly and without detours.
