With the demand for broadband increasing day by day, the speed of broadband is also increasing. Companies and governments all over the world are trying to provide improved broadband speeds to their users to facilitate easier and faster data transfer.
Alcatel-Lucent (News - Alert) has announced that the company has joined hands with P&T Luxembourg to support the national government’s ‘Ultra High BroadBand’ plan. This plan by the Luxembourg government aims to provide its residents with 100 MBPS broadband plans.
With this partnership, P&T Luxembourg is looking to bring together VDSL2 Bonding and Vectoring technologies. To achieve this, the company is looking to make use of Alcatel-Lucent’s recent Zero-Touch Vectoring innovation.
To cater to the government’s 100 Mbps target faster, P&T Luxembourg has made use of Alcatel-Lucent’s GPON and P2P-based fiber access solution. While VDSL2 Vectoring gets rid of the interference between various VDSL2 lines and VDSL2 Bonding allows users to achieve speeds of 100 MBPS.
Zero Touch Vectoring makes use of advanced signal processing to make sure that VDSL2 modems run at full speed. All this is done without compromising the service quality. VDSL2 Vectoring makes use of current copper lines to provide the ‘last mile’ broadband connection.
Luis Martinez Amago, president of Alcatel-Lucent’s EMEA region, said, “P&T Luxembourg is a front runner in terms of providing people with access to very high-speed broadband. While fiber is clearly the end goal for them – a technology in which they are heavily investing already – it makes perfect sense to also upgrade their copper plant to bring fiber-like speeds to more customers, more quickly. Being a leader in fixed access, we believe that we are uniquely positioned to help P&T Luxembourg.”
Recently, the company announced the appointment of Michel Combess as the company’s new CEO.
