BBL - Broadbandloop

    Project Details


    The objective of the BROADBANDLOOP project is to define and test in field trials a concept for a cost-effective broadband access network, which will allow fibre to migrate gracefully into the local loop as bandwidth demand increases. The project will demonstrate a graceful upgrade of PONs to high bandwidth and use high speed VDSL modems to upgrade coax and copper twisted pair networks, to transport broadband services over the last drop into the customers' premises. The target customer group is small to medium size business enterprises and residential customers.
