Belgacom Alcatel-Lucent’s first VDSL2 vectoring customer
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) and Belgian national carrier Belgacom (Euronext Brussels: BELG), have revealed that Belgacom will be the first to deploy the VDSL2 vectoring technology Alcatel-Lucent announced last week (see “Alcatel-Lucent offers VSDL2 vectoring to support 100-Mbps services”). The use of VDSL2 vectoring will enable Belgacom to deliver guaranteed speeds of 50 Mbps over its copper infrastructure nationwide by 2014 as part of its “Broadway” broadband program.Belgacom serves more than a million customers with television and high speed internet. The current 78.9% national VDSL2 coverage will increase to 85% by the end of 2013 as part of the new rollout.Alcatel-Lucent acknowledges that Belgacom’s collaboration was key to the development and commercialization of the VDSL2 vectoring capability.According to Scott Alcott, executive vice president, service delivery engine at Belgacom, “Our continuous network modernization over the years has positioned Belgium among the leading broadband nations in the world. Together with the expertise of Alcatel-Lucent, we continue to deploy innovative solutions to leverage our existing copper infrastructure in a fast and cost-effective way, delivering a higher quality broadband experience to our subscribers. This latest phase in our collaboration will play a major role in meeting the European Digital Agenda 2020 goals.”
Alcatel-Lucent offers VSDL2 vectoring to support 100-Mbps services
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has announced commercial availability of its version of VDSL2 Vectoring technology. The new capability, compliant to the ITU-T’s G.vector specifications, is a noise cancelling technology that, when paired with channel bonding, can enable 100-Mbps service delivery to residences and businesses via VDSL2 networks.According to Keith Russell, senior marketing manager, Wireline Fixed Access at Alcatel-Lucent, the VDSL2 Vectoring technology is based on in-house expertise and will support the 100-Mbps speeds over a distance of 400 m, or lower data rates over longer distances, thanks to its ability to eliminate cross-talk. At least six carriers have trialed the technology, and the company plans to announce a customer next week, he says. While the vectoring technology will be available this year, the ability to pair it with bonding will not be released until the first half of next year, Russell reveals.VDSL2 Vectoring is available as line card upgrades to Alcatel-Lucent’s 7356 ISAM REM (FD-2), 7330 ISAM FTTN (FD-8), and 7302 ISAM (FD-16) platforms. A Board-Level Vectoring card supports smaller applications and operates independently, while the pairing of multiple System-Level Vectoring (SLV) line cards and a Vectoring Processor line card can apply vectoring across an entire system. The Vectoring Processor card will oversee four SLV cards in the initial release; Alcatel-Lucent will expand its capacity to eight SLVs next year. Both the SLVs and the Board-Level Vectoring card will support 48-port operation and two- to eight-pair bonding.Russell couched the technology in the context of the worldwide trend toward national broadband programs. While many such programs emphasize fiber to the home (FTTH), the VDSL2 technology will enable carriers to meet broadband service deployment objectives more quickly over existing infrastructure, he says.Rob Gallagher, principal analyst and head of Broadband & TV Research at market research and analysis firm Informa -- who has advocated that FTTH is unnecessary in many cases to meet broadband service objectives -- welcomed the announcement. “Alcatel-Lucent's plan to make VDSL2 vectoring commercially available is very timely,” said Gallagher in a quote provided to the press. “Service providers and governments have stated their intent to boost broadband speeds to consumers and businesses alike, but the challenges associated with comprehensive fiber-to-the-home deployments have been a major obstacle. VDSL2 Vectoring promises to bring speeds of 100 Mbps and beyond to advanced copper/fiber hybrid networks and make superfast broadband speeds available to many more people, much faster than many in the industry had thought possible.”
Cincinnati Bell selects Calix for Fioptics FTTN expansion
Calix Inc. (NYSE: CALX) says that Cincinnati Bell Telephone (CBT; NYSE: CBB) will deploy the Ethernet eXtensible Architecture (EXA) Powered Calix C7 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP) as part of an expansion of CBT’s Fioptics services footprint. CBT will use the C7 MSAP as part of a fiber to the node (FTTN) deployment that will leverage existing fiber and VDSL2 technology to offer Fioptics services to an additional 70,000 homes.The new deployment will expand CBT’s Fioptics coverage area to more than 150,000 homes in southwestern Ohio and northern Kentucky."We are extremely excited to work with Calix to rapidly expand the Fioptics broadband initiative to a whole new set of potential customers," said Darrick Zucco, vice president and GM of consumer markets at CBT."Calix provides us with a tight product and technology fit, and simplified business and support model. This rare combination puts us in a great position to execute effectively on this important initiative," added Jeff Carr, CTO at CBT. In addition to bringing VDSL2 density to CBT's network, the C7 MSAP also will offer integrated 10-Gigabit Ethernet transport. CBT plans to deploy C7 software release 7.2 as well, which supports such new C7 features as link aggregation (802.3ad) and a pure IP video model across its line cards.
