Flash mob

Flash mobs are masses of people who congregate in a public or semi-public space spontaneously, for a brief period of time and for a specific purpose. The goal of a flash mob is to raise awareness and promote a specific topic, for example a political idea. They are primarily organized through social networks, blogs, e-mail or cell phones.

Flash-OFDM

Flash-OFDM  (Fast Low-latency Access with Seamless Handoff—Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is a mobile broadband Internet data transmission protocol. It works with microwaves in the 450 MHz frequency range and is not compatible with GSM or UMTS. Data transmission rates cannot exceed 5.1 Mbit/s downlink and 1.8 Mbit/s uplink.

FTE

FTE  (full-time equivalent) is an indicator used in human resources management. This indicator is used to convert the headcount into full-time positions. Each full-time position is assigned the value of 1.0 FTE . Let us assume that a company employs 100 part-time employees at 50 percent of the collectively agreed/standard weekly work hours. Each of these positions is scored as 0.5 FTEs. The indicator would therefore give us a result of 50 FTEs.

FTTB lines (fiber to the basement)

FTTB (fiber to the basement or fiber to the building) refers to a mode of connecting homes via fiber optics. Fiber-optic lines are installed into the basement of the customer's building, for example. Available gas or water pipes can be used, eliminating the need for expensive underground construction works. Data transmission within the building itself continues to be conducted to the customer's apartment via the available copper lines or VDSL  technology.

FTTC (fiber to the cabinet)

Fiber-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) means that a fiber-optic line is installed up to a point close to the subscriber. For the last section up to the subscriber drop, the signal is transferred to copper cable.

FTTH (fiber to the home)

FTTH describes the installation of fiber-optic cables up into a subscriber’s home. With FTTH, Internet speeds in both directions of up to 50 Mbit/s can be achieved. The customer can simultaneously receive several HDTV programs as well as use the Internet and several phone lines.
