As the number of broadband services continues to expand and the bandwidth required by those services continues to increase, carriers are challenged to keep up with last-mile capacity demands. Traditional copper DSL solutions, like ADSL2+ and VDSL2 are reaching their capacity limit, which is greatly impacted by the length of the DSL copper loop.
The solution to this challenge, known as fiber-to-the-curb (FTTC), is to push fiber deeper into the network to shorten the loop as much as possible, specifically for deployments where fiber-to-the- home is cost prohibitive. Like the cable/ MSO fiber deep initiatives, FTTC leverages the reach and bandwidth advantages of fiber to shorten the copper loop to the point where tens or even hundreds of Mbit/s are possible.
Having the right tools and processes to deploy, test, characterize and monitor this fiber plant is critical to the success of FTTC initiatives.
