Vectoring technology is a major milestone for broadband access, creating many opportunities for new services. Vectored VDSL2 can deliver "dedicated" (not shared) rates to the customer in excess of 100 Mbps over existing copper plant. This allows service providers to deliver a range of innovative services and evolve their networks to meet the growing demands of broadband consumers.
Vectoring also offers a competitive advantage in delivering super-fast access compared to other technologies that offer shared connectivity solutions at a much higher cost— for instance, fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) installations.
Still, vectored VDSL2 presents challenges in each deployment phase, from planning to the actual physical deployment; from maintenance to daily optimization in the presence of non-crosstalk noises, as well as crosstalk noise from legacy services. Service providers have to deploy vectoring across networks made up of multivendor equipment, and upgrade the network gradually, managing vectored and non-vectored lines as needed.
This white paper gives an overview of the benefits of vectoring and the main challenges associated with its deployment. After dispelling several misconceptions, it describes the tools, capabilities and practices necessary to help overcome these challenges, and accelerate vectored VDSL2 deployments while driving high performance and ensuring rapid profitability.
