TT trials VDSL2 vectoring

9 Apr 2013

State-backed telco Tunisie Telecom (TT) and Alcatel-Lucent have successfully completed a trial of superfast broadband using VDSL2 vectoring, the French-US vendor said in a press release. The trial was intended to assess the viability of the platform for meeting growing customer demand for high speed broadband services. VDSL2 vectoring utilises the existing copper network and removes interference between multiple lines in a grouping of cables so that each can operate at its peak; Alca-Lu claims that the network is capable of supporting downlink/uplink transmission speeds of up to 100Mbps/40Mbps over a distance of 600m.

‘VDSL2 vectoring technology will allow us to quickly deliver advanced broadband services to meet our customers’ growing demands for more innovative, better quality and more value added services’ Nizar Bouguila, TT’s CTO commented on the trials.
