I have posted several times about the benefits of FTTH compared to copper-based access solutions in terms of energy efficience.
Yesterday, Etisalat has released an study showing the savings in terms of CO2 emissions of an FTTH access network.
The study reports that savings can go up to 85%. This is because all the services are integrated thus just an access infrastructure is needed and not several of them to distribute the different services.
So… FTTH offers more services, more capacity and is also more environmental-friendly.
