Will Fiber Hold its Own against VDSL2?
By Mini Swamy
What do today’s consumers want? Faster network speed, more bandwidth, high upload and download speed, streaming multimedia content –like Oliver Twist, they want all of that and more. To address these needs, although fiber roll outs have begun in earnest across the country, deployment is still not fast enough to satisfy the ‘impatient consumer.’
However, Telebyte, a high-tech enterprise, is more than willing to oblige consumers with VDSL2 vectoring, a new technology that overcomes the speed limitations of slow fiber deployment. The best part is that it uses existing infrastructure of copper wires to deliver speeds of up to 100 Mbps, in a shorter span of time.
Basically, the vectoring bit helps to cancel out the noise in the copper lines allowing more traffic to be accommodated at higher speeds.
Naturally then, service providers and government around the world, constantly on the lookout for options that can accelerate their superfast broadband rollouts without having to dip too much into their coffers , are excited about using VDSL2 vectoring to provide next generation high speed Internet access. The fact that they can use the existing copper infrastructure makes VDSL2 doubly attractive.
A live demonstration during the exhibition will illustrate how VDSL2 operates, expound its benefits and underscore the need to real-world test it before actual deployment. Telebyte will be showcasing equipment used for VDSL2 vectoring.
Telebyte will showcase some of the tools that are used for VDSL2 at the Broadband World Forum 2013 in Amsterdam, held October 22-24, 2013.
More bandwidth, greater outreach to customers, less expensive than fiber, faster to deploy and high speed Internet are just some of the benefits that VDSL2 vectoring is likely to bring. However, that doesn’t mean, it’s going to be a bed of roses all the way, there will be hiccups, not insurmountable perhaps, but given the buzz that surrounds it today, it may just need the push and a shove for it to stay ahead of the technology curve.
