The International Telecommunications Union (ITU-T) has taken the first steps towards standardising G.fast, the next major DSL-based standard which vendors hope will provide a “fibre-like” experience. As an FTTH alternative, operators have chosen to lay out fiber to the distribution point (FTTDp) and reuse existing access media, such as telephone lines and coaxial cables, to provide ultra-high-speed broadband access. Because the last-part transmission was over such a short distance, the operators anticipated they could achieve gigabit speeds using existing access media. G.fast technology has been developped to address this last-part transmission issue.
How to evolve from VDSL2 to G.fast?
What are the deployment feasabilities of hybrid FTTH with G.fast?
What about G.fast spectrum and the impact of crosstalk?
What are the self installation technological issues?
Single power or multi-power?
Responses will be delivered during the G-fast Summit, to be held in Novotel Convention & Wellness Paris Roissy CDG, from 20 to 22 May, 2014
