Alcatel-Lucent Conducts VDSL2 Vectoring Tests with China Telecom & Tunisie Telecom

Alcatel-Lucent announced VDSL2 vectoring trials with China Telecom and Tunisie Telecom.  Both tests achieved downstream speeds of 100Mbps.

The trial with China Telecom, which remains the biggest investor in fiber optical networking in the country, used Alcatel-Lucent’s ISAM-based end-to-end System Level Vectoring solution connected to China Telecom’s broadband access network. It includes the 7302 ISAM and G.vector customer premises equipment. Alcatel-Lucent said its VDSL2 vectoring complements China Telecom’s national fiber optic data network currently being deployed by Alcatel-Lucent Shanghai Bell.

Alcatel-Lucent noted that its VSL2 vectoring solution now has 11 commercial customers and more than 40 trials with carriers around the world.
