TDC will double its copper broadband network speeds in Denmark with the addition of VDSL2 35b Vplus technology from Nokia, it has announced.

Finland-based Nokia said the new deployment builds on the Danish operator’s existing VDSL2 17a vectoring network, and requires only a “simple upgrade” to its existing DSLAMs.

Vplus doubles VDSL2 spectrum from 17 MHz to 35MHz for as much as double the speed on intermediate loop lengths, said Nokia, making it ideal for fibre-to-the-cabinet deployments.

Federico Guillén, President of Fixed Networks at Nokia, said: “Broadband subscribers want ever-higher speeds to enjoy video, gaming, cloud services and the like.

“The fastest way to get there is by a phased approach and gradual upgrades of the existing copper network infrastructure, which allows service providers like TDC to bring much higher speeds to more people in a much shorter timeframe.”

Peter Trier Schleidt, COO at TDC Group, said: “We expect many customers to experience a clear improvement in their broadband speeds and entertainment offerings when we roll out Vplus technology.”

Nokia said it has deployed nine commercial Vplus networks around the world.

Vplus fills the gap between VDSL2 vectoring and G.fast, with aggregate speeds of over 200 Mbps up to 500 metres from the cabinet, and over 300 Mbps at up to 250 metres.

Nokia announced in October it had expanded its range of G.fast micro-nodes to enable broadband providers to accelerate their deployment of the technology.
