Alcatel-Lucent: 1 Million Lines with VDSL2 Vectoring

Alcatel-Lucent announced a company milestone:  the shipment of its one millionth VDSL2 vectoring line.

Alcatel-Lucent launched its VDSL2 vectoring technology in late 2011.  The solution achieves downlink rates of up to 100 Mbps over existing copper connections at up to 400m.

Alcatel-Lucent’s one million VDSL2 vectoring lines have been delivered to 11 different service providers, including Belgacom and Telekom Austria. In addition, Alcatel-Lucent has been involved in more than 40 trials, including TDC Denmark, China Telecom, and, with P&T Luxembourg, the world’s first trial combining VDSL2 vectoring with bonding, a technique that doubles the distance over which 100 Mbps can be provided.
