FTTH Council Established in Middle East
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, Dec. 3, 2010 — The FTTH Council Middle East was officially created to help realize the high growth potential of fiber-to-the-home networks (FTTH) in the Middle East region.
Incubated since 2009 as an ad-hoc working party by the FTTH Council Europe, the Middle East group is now an independent organization and a fully-fledged council that can respond to the specific needs of its Middle East members.
The FTTH Council Middle East will work with the Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America councils to promote and accelerate the deployment of high-speed fiber-based access networks to consumers and businesses around the world.
The official launch of the FTTH Council Middle East took place at the FTTH Middle East Conference 2010 which was held on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 in Beirut, Lebanon.
The FTTH Council Europe is an industry organization with a mission to accelerate the availability of fiber-based, ultra-high-speed access networks to consumers and businesses. The council promotes this technology because it will deliver a flow of new services that enhance the quality of life, contribute to a better environment and increase economic competitiveness. The council consists of more than 150 member companies.
