Why Not Just Run Fiber to Every Apartment Unit?
If you deliver fiber to the apartment, you still need an ONT (Modem) in the unit that needs to plug into AC power
You will need an equipment cabinet in each apartment to convert from the fiber to ethernet
Expensive equipment adds something to break inside your residents unit, with no major benefit
No devices today connect directly to the internet via fiber. They still connect with Ethernet or WiFi
When you install an access point in an apartment, you need to power it somehow. You cannot power this over the fiber.
While it may make sense to run fiber to the unit for future use, it doesn’t make sense to do it today based on the technology currently being deployed. For this reason, DojoNetworks™ only recommends this additional fiber expense in some special circumstances and usually only during new construction.
