Abstract [en]

This report summarizes research regarding VDSL as a broadband access technology. VDSL (Very-high-bitrate Digital Subscriber Line) is a technology that provides high bitrate on ordinary copper twisted pair telephone lines. VDSL is designed and intended to be used as a competitor to the current FTTH (Fiber-To-The-Home) architecture. This thesis evaluates VDSL in terms of cost, scalability and simplicity. This report consider issues such as drivers for VDSL standards, higher layer technologies over VDSL, limitations of the PSTN access network, analysis of the current status in the development of VDSL as well as advantages and drawbacks with the VDSL technology from both customer and telecom operator perspective. This report contains an evaluation of two different VDSL systems. The evaluation is based on results from performance testing, management evaluation and examination of product specific implementations. The conclusion that follows is that VDSL is a technology with high potential, the equipment itself is though relatively immature at the time.
