The Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) is a network that interconnects technical sites (mobile cellular network antennas, operators' technical premises, key public and private account buildings, data centres, FTTx optical service nodes, etc.) on an urban or metropolitan area scale. Over the past twenty years, optical fiber has become the dominant reference standard for these MAN infrastructures. These networks consist of activated and non-activated optical fibers that can be rented to different customers according to their needs and desired service levels. Some can thus establish private networks by renting non-activated fibers (Black fibers).
