FTTE

(Fiber To The telecom Enclosure) The installation of optical fiber throughout a building to a telecommunications enclosure (TE) on each floor or department. The TE serves as a distribution point to the user equipment (telephone, computer, etc.) and includes patch panels and switches. Connections to the user equipment from the TE can be optical, twisted pair or wireless. See FTTx.

FOLS offers a premises cost model that compares the cost of a traditional hierarchical star architecture (UTP horizontal with fiber riser backbone) to the other standards-compliant architectures: centralized cabling (FTTD), fiber-to-the-telecom enclosure (FTTE) low density, and FTTE high density.
The low- and high-density FTTE options trade performance for cost.
