Danish telecoms provider TDC (operating as YouSee) has teamed up with Nokia to upgrade its copper-based networks by deploying Vplus (VDSL2 35b) technology, building further on its existing VDSL2 Vectoring network. Under the contract, Nokia will be providing its 7302 Intelligent Services Access Manager (ISAM FD) equipment with VDSL2 35b Vplus technology, and upgrading the existing Nokia 7330 ISAM FD shelves where needed with Vplus capable line cards. Peter Trier Schleidt, chief operating officer at TDC Group, commented: ‘We have a clear ambition to offer the best connections to the Danes. Regardless of where its subscribers live, TDC Group offers a mobile, broadband and TV solution. We want to do even better, particularly for rural areas, and therefore we are very pleased that Vplus technology lets us use our old copper connections in new ways to benefit our customers.’ Vplus could provide download speeds of 200Mbps for users within 500 metres of an exchange and 300Mbps (up to 250 metres).
