DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6r7h7l/annual_market) has announced the addition of the "Annual Market Outlook - Global DSL Port Shipments (2015-2020)" report to their offering.
Most fixed line operators have long-term plans to deploy Fiber-to-theHome (FTTH) technologies to future-proof their network from unanticipated bandwidth demand. Unfortunately, a number of factors impact the reality of this choice in the near term - particularly the competitive, regulatory and economic environments.
As such, many operators are looking for interim solutions that enable them to compete more effectively with alternative technologies (for instance DOCSIS 3.0/3.1 and 4G LTE) and to meet the targets of many regulatory policies, such as the Digital Agenda for Europe. By driving fiber deeper into the network but still leveraging their copper assets, operators will be able to quickly address demand for greater speeds, coverage and services.
VDSL2 Vectoring alone, or in combination with VDSL2 bonding, along with forthcoming technologies such as G.fast are breathing new life into the copper plant by providing FTTH-like speeds over copper lines. Additionally, these solutions can address the immediate time-tomarket, competitive and regulatory challenges; while operators prepare their networks for the eventual migration to FTTH.
VDSL2 Vectoring proving to be a viable solution and is meeting operator expectations in terms of speeds. As such, VDSL ports will continue to represent a growing proportion of total DSL ports, while we forecast that 27 percent of all cumulative VDSL2 ports will be vectored by 2020, with EMEA representing 58 percent of total.
