TDC has deployed VDSL2 broadband technology in Denmark to deliver Triple Play services, including Internet, IP Telephony and IPTV, over a High-Performance Broadband architecture. The VDSL2 system is now in field test.
VDSL2 is the next major DSL broadband technology and the first to allow Ethernet end-to-end architectures, which will simplify networks. The early availability of VDSL2 systems will be key for vendor interoperability testing processes in 2006.
Dan SÃ¶rensson, Chief Technology Officer, TDC, says: “Ericsson has met our requirements for the current EDA ADSL2+ rollout and likewise demonstrated IP/Ethernet-based DSL solutions that also let us move forward into the VDSL2 market, in line with our ambition of always being first with the fastest offerings for our customers.”
Martin Mellor, head of Broadband Access at Ericsson, says: “We are very pleased to extend our cooperation with TDC into a new technological area. TDC’s ambitious goals allow us to continually improve our EDA solutions and remain at the technological forefront, as we approach the VDSL2 market with great expectations.”
Ericsson addresses the VDSL2 market with a fully featured IP/Ethernet system that builds on the extensive experience gained from three years of EDA field deployments.
