Only dedicated to the exhibitors of the FTTH Conference 2024, the FTTH Innovation Awards will complement our existing FTTH Awards and recognise the most significant and innovative FTTH products and solutions that are shaping Europe’s digital future. There will be five categories, specifically reviewed to ensure they reflect the broad range of FTTH connectivity products and service solutions: 

  1. Passive Infrastructure 
  2. Active infrastructure - Central network 
  3. Active infrastructure - Home network e.g. customer premise equipment and wi-fi 
  4. Planning, workflow, mapping/GIS, AI software 
  5. Installation Equipment, Tools, Test & Measurement Instruments

The judging panel will be made up of experts from the world of FTTH, including FTTH Council Europe Board Members, Committee Chairs, and Conference and Workshop speakers for the FTTH Conference 2024. 

There will be two rounds of voting: 

  1. By 20 November 2023, FTTH Council Europe Board Members and Committee Chairs will shortlist the final three products/services in each category

  2. By 26 February 2024, the Conference and Workshop speakers will then be invited to vote for the winner of each category (3 weeks before the FTTH Conference 2024, to allow any senior representatives time to book travel to enable them to collect their award at the conference).

The awards are free to enter and limited to FTTH Conference 2024 Exhibitors
