The mission of the FTTH Council of Europe is, to accelerate ubiquitous fibre-based connectivity empowering a leading Digital Society throughout Europe.

The company recently invested €250,000 in developing a ‘Fibre Centre of Excellence’ in Limerick, which brings together the expertise of fibre design, survey and planning engineers who will continually innovate how fibre networks are designed and delivered, while also focusing on specialised training for graduate engineers to meet not just the current demands, but future 5G or next generation network developments. As well as a wealth of expertise in fibre technology, 4site also has considerable experience in the planning, design and build of wireless networks.
4site is currently rolling out a number of high-profile fibre projects, including one with CityFibre, the UK’s leading alternative provider of wholesale full fibre infrastructure. 4site is working with CityFibre to help deliver full fibre connectivity to five million homes and businesses in the UK by 2025, making it the country’s most advanced digital infrastructure. 4site’s expertise and best in class tools will ensure the right network architecture blueprint, accurate routing, and risks are designed out.
