BellSouth Says Hello VDSL2

1 Comment

The new improved and recently ratified VDSL2 standard has one enthusiastic support at the very least – BellSouth. The company says it will use Tellabs’ AFC gear for its fiber to the curb project. “BellSouth will use VDSL2 to upgrade existing FTTC systems and achieve broadband speeds greater than 50Mbps on systems installed over the last decade,” said Bill Smith, chief technology officer of BellSouth, which even now has 1.1 million FTTC curbs. Tellabs will provide the technology to upgrade those customers to bring them upto speed. BLS says it will be buying PON gear from JDS Uniphase for gigabit ethernet in the local loop. [Press Release]
