What is clear is the growth in demand for fibre optic communication system is very much on the up. While some countries have fully embraced and adopted FTTH (fibre to the Home) – the vast majority have not as yet. Last mile fibre optics into the home to provide future household bandwidth requirements will happen in the relative short term. Similarly, 5G (fifth generation) mobile networks have only just commenced with a roll-out in some countries and are still being planned for the coming years.

These are generally accepted as the key market drivers for the communication network industries. Leader Optec has extensive know-how and expertise in the fibre optic assembly types used in all these sectors.
