For a long time, the cure for diabetes type 1 and type 2 has relied on agonizing insulin shots for patients or insulin infusion via mechanical pumps. Regarding this, experts have been creating artificial pancreatic beta cells with the he…
The volume of FTTdp deployments is likely to be smaller than originally thought because many operators will seek to deliver improved speeds from street cabinets for the foreseeable future.
New copper-based broadband technologies, such as G.fast, have prompted a debate about a new architecture for FTTx networks based on small remote nodes delivering gigabit speeds on established copper drops. Based on real case studies, this report assesses whether continuing improvements in copper technology make this necessary, and assesses where there might still be a case for this new architecture, and what the relative costs of full FTTP are.
This strategy report assesses:
- The potential for operators to offer speeds beyond those possible with VDSL vectoring from existing cabinet locations
- The impact that SuperVector/Vplus and G.fast technology developments will have on the market for FTTdp
- The costs that operators will face when rolling out FTTdp and how these costs compare with FTTH and FTTC deployment architecture
- The circumstances under which, and in which countries, FTTdp has the greatest prospects for deployment
- The overall market opportunity for FTTdp deployments.
