It can gain up to 20 Mbps on phone lines as long at 1.5 km. 30 million DSL users worldwide 2004 -- VDSL2 standards under preparation in DSL forum 2005 -- VDSL2 standard verified (G.933.2) – symmetrical 100 Mb/s. 115 million DSL users Motivation / properties of ADSL:  Motivation / properties of ADSL Need for high-speed Internet access - Telephone modem have only moderate rates (56 kb/s) and cable modems have service problems if number of users is large ADSL Transmits high speed data to local loop by using unshielded 2-wire twisted pairs (often no repeaters required) DSL allows rates varying from 160 kb/s up to 100 Mb/s on down link (DL) depending on technology used! In the most popular commercial ADSL (G.992.1) maximum rate 640 kbit/s upstream and 8 Mb/s downstream Different xDSL techniques developed to serve symmetric and asymmetric traffic requirements and different rates (STM and ATM supported by G.992.1 ADSL) STM-n: Synchronous Transfer Module (of SDH): DS-1,2: 1.544 Mb/s, 6.312 Mb/s ATM: Asynchronous Transfer Mode DL: Down Link - Down stream ADSL Equipment:  Residential Customer ADSL Modem or Gateway Customer Premises Equipment Central Office Building ADSL Rack of Line Cards Standard Telephone Lines ADSL Equipment Slide18:  DMT: Discrete Multitone Technique Slide19:  Bandwidth division Reach of ADSL:  Reach of ADSL Typically ADSL can reach as far as 18 kft from the central office To extend the reach, service providers have a host of options, outlined in the white paper DSL Anywhere v.2 Standards evolution empower Video delivery at higher speeds :  Standards evolution empower Video delivery at higher speeds ADSL2plus (G.992.5) downstream bandwidth boost up to 24.5 Mb/s Reach Extended ADSL: RE-ADSL2 (G.992.3 annex L) loop reach increase of 600 to 900 m at low rates (192 kb/s DS + 96 kb/s US) Next Generation ADSL: ADSL2 (G.992.3) performance improvement (+100 kb/s on average) improved interop, loop diagnostics, robustness improved initialization & fast start-up power management ADSL Double upstream (G.992.3/5 annex M) double upstream bandwidth Very high speed DSL bandwidths up to 100 Mb/s on short loops different band plans Plan 997: compromise band plan for symmetric and asymmetric traffic Plan 998: optimized for asymmetry Plan Fx: flexible band plan VDSL2 Most service providers are updating with a triple pack: ADSL2, ADSL2plus and RE-ADSL at the same time Existing High Speed Technologies Do Not Solve the Problem of Bottlenecks:  Existing High Speed Technologies Do Not Solve the Problem of Bottlenecks Data rate [Mbit/s] 2 8 100 VDSL 20 60 Line Length 1 km 2 km 3 km 4 km 5 km ADSL2+ SHDSL Low bit-rates are insufficient for Triple-Play applications Real bit-rates are too low for multiple (3) HDTV channels Design only for short loop applications (MDU/MTU) VDSL2 = VDSL Speeds with ADSL/2+ Reach and Flexibility VDSL2 Standardization:  VDSL2 Standardization VDSL2 standardization started in January 2004 Main technology development in ITU-T North American system requirements in ANSI/NIPNAI European system requirements in ETSI Reached consent in May 2005 (Geneva Meeting) Today there are various DSL Technology Options:  Today there are various DSL Technology Options “Today’s Typical Network” : ADSL:  ADSL 1.5 to 8Mbit/s 9.6 to 640kbit/s Broadband Network Internet Video Servers Live Broadcast Telephone Network “Today’s Typical Network” : ADSL Slide27:  ADSL Applications Internet Access & File Sharing Video Broadcast TV Video On Demand Voice over IP via DSL Teleworking Online Education & Shopping Telemedicine Online Gaming Relation between Transmission Rate & Service Level :  Relation between Transmission Rate & Service Level Market Status of ADSL Technology:  Market Status of ADSL Technology ADSL is the #1 Broadband Choice in the World with over 60% marketshare ADSL is now available in every region of the world ADSL is capable of providing up to 50 Mbp, and supports voice, video and data. The new DSL network is IP-centric There is broad equipment interoperability and there are currently established test specifications for ADSL, ADSL2plus, SHDSL, and VDSL Finally, ADSL and home networking are a natural fit as DSL effectively supports multiple applications for multiple uses via each DSL connection. Home Network Applications:  Home Network Applications Summary:  Summary ADSL2+ and VDSL2 offer triple play at last Reach allows wider serving areas Rates allow triple play and enhanced services Ethernet rapidly taking over from ATM Offers LAN extension type services – no signal conversion Network architecture evolving faster than ever before – DSL Forum driven Fiber to the Home (FTTH):  Fiber to the Home (FTTH) Fibre to the home:  Fibre to the home Almost unlimited transmission rates: 100 Mbit/s full duplex per subscriber easily available. Prices of both fibre and terminal equipment have until recently been too high for single users, but optical fibre systems are now competitive with respect to equipment cost for a single private user. Fibre to the home (FTTH) will soon be the main alternative in new installations (e.g., building new residential areas). FTTH deployment in existing suburban areas is now becoming competitive. The full transition from copper to fibre may take decades - will probably follow the normal cycle for renewing underground infrastructure (water, sewage, electricity, telecom).

December 9, 2002: “Hollywood's Latest Flop” Fortune Magazine “The files are huge. At 952 Megabytes, Braveheart took just less than five hours to download using our DSL Line at home… in the same time we could have made 20 round trips to our neighborhood Blockbuster ” Technical considerations – Speed (IPTV Reference) FTTP Architectures:  FTTP Architectures ONT Source:Verizon,2004. Slide45:  Video Video is a popular service, which is a good basis for any new entrant FTTH provider. There is one way to provide video on cable and satellite (broadcast) and one way to provide video on DSL (IPTV). There are two ways to provide video on FTTH (broadcast and IPTV). The market place can sort out the use of each, to the benefit of the subscriber. We will describe the differences. Slide46:  Can send video several different ways on FTTH Broadcast (cable TV standards) Analog Digital Cable TV good engineering practice is 47-48 dB C/N FTTH can achieve 48-51 dB C/N Benefit from high volume and plethora of applications of cable boxes RF return support for STTs IPTV – TV transmitted over Internet Protocol Feasible, and some people are doing it in place of broadcast Bandwidth hog, but statistics can work for you Interesting hybrid model awaits hybrid STTs, but can give the best of both worlds Technical considerations - Video Slide47:  Ways of transmitting video Slide48:  Cable and DSL users in Japan Power Line Communication (PLC):  Power Line Communication (PLC) PLC diagram:  PLC diagram Background:  Background Don’t power companies send data over power lines already? Yes, Power Line Carrier (PLC) is used for command and control but it is narrow-band low frequency (100 to 180 kHz) and low speed. Current BPL is wide-band and uses 2.46 to 38 MHz. It offers 1-3 mBits/sec to the end point. Slide52:  Broadband over Powerline (BPL) interference paths Conclusions:  Conclusions Broadband for All and Access Everywhere are the two main technological challenges in telecom towards 2020. For full broadband, “the future is mainly wired.” Within time frame under study, xDSL systems are major candidates for broadband fixed access, and can provide systems for a wide range of bit rates symmetrical and asymmetrical systems. FTTH will soon be the main alternative for new installations. Access via cable TV and fixed radio are other candidates for broadband access. In 2020 there will be a mix of systems. Satellites are suitable for TV broadcasting and coverage in remote areas, but not competitive for true broadband access. The fixed broadband network will often be extended to a wireless nomadic network, and access will hence be perceived as wireless by the end user. Conclusions, cont’d:  Conclusions, cont’d Access Everywhere will be provided through a variety of wireless solutions, which together form the B3G network: Personal Area Networks Wireless LANs Backbone cellular network Fixed radio access Satellite links B3G will become available sometime after 2010, and represents convergence between the above subsystems and the wired network. B3G will be based on packet switching and designed to carry high-speed, bursty TCP/IP traffic. New radio interface technologies may increase bandwidth efficiencies and available data rates by a factor 10 - 100 compared to GSM and UMTS. This will enable much more advanced and diverse telecommunications services in the future than what is offered by today’s systems.
