Technology - Infrastructure - Last Mile 8 - FTTC, VDSL2 Technical Standards

Synopsis

We discuss the frequency plans and technical details of the ITU’s promising new G993.2 VDSL2 standard. We discuss ADSL compatibility, Dynamic Spectrum Management and Packet Transfer Mode. Finally we consider the competition challenges of VDSL2 deployment, and the DSL forum’s proposal to use Ethernet rather than ATM transport for future ADSL systems.
