Ease migration with Zero-Touch Vectoring
Nokia Zero-Touch Vectoring technology speeds vectoring deployments by eliminating the need to upgrade legacy CPE to vectoring friendly mode.
Just one non-vectoring compliant CPE operating in a vectored cable can create cross talk, which drastically reduces gains on vectored lines. Until now, service providers needed to upgrade all of their existing VDSL2 CPE to vectoring or vectoring-friendly mode to prevent this cross talk from reducing gains.
Zero-Touch Vectoring solves this problem by automatically handling all legacy VDSL2 CPEs. Firmware upgrades are not required, so legacy VDSL2 CPEs will be vectoring-friendly without needing to be touched. Only those CPE that are being used to provide higher bandwidth vectoring services will need to be upgraded. This provides a quick and easy way for service providers to introduce vectoring in their network, without having to worry at all about legacy VDSL2 CPEs.
Stay ahead of the broadband curve with Nokia
Nokia VDSL2 innovations are part of a full toolkit of copper and fiber solutions. For a complete broadband infrastructure, it’s a matter of choosing the right mix of copper, fiber and wireless technologies. Time to market, cost and competitive pressures all influence technology decisions.
- Copper makes sense where the copper infrastructure is already available. Our solutions support a mix of legacy VDSL2 and VDSL2 Vectoring-ready customer premises equipment (CPE) to pave the way for smooth evolution to next-generation fiber.
- Fiber makes sense in greenfield areas and strategic areas where deployments can be cost-justified with higher service revenues. Our fiber solutions include GPON, EPON and XPON1, as well as solutions for point-to-point Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet.
We deliver the mix of copper and fiber access innovations you need to meet your market and financial objectives. Whether you plan to evolve your network quickly or gradually, with copper, fiber or a combination, we will continue to take you to higher speeds. With Nokia as your wireline access partner, you’re positioned to stay ahead of the broadband curve for many years to come.
What analysts are saying
“[Nokia's] plan to make VDSL2 vectoring commercially available is very timely. 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.”
Rob Gallagher, principal analyst, head of broadband & TV research, Informa
“While there is plenty of encouraging FTTH activity around the world, the lengthy rollout timelines and high capex requirements-- especially for outside plant deployment-- remain formidable hurdles. As a result, we forecast in 2016 that there will be almost 400 million DSL subscribers, compared to 228 million FTTB and FTTH subscribers. Many service providers with existing copper access infrastructure will need to use these assets to address competition, rising bandwidth demand and government driven imperatives aimed at boosting minimum broadband access speed availability and accessibility. [Nokia's] VDSL2 vectoring product enhances its access portfolio but more importantly provides an important option for such service providers.”
