  Introduction/Standardization Progress/Regulation

Keynote by Thomas Starr
Broadband Forum, AT&T
Presenting FTTdp with, VDSL2, and Vectored VDSL2, the BBF’s equipment testing programs for and Vectored VDSL2, and management of alien crosstalk with Vectored VDSL2.
  09.00 Overview of  
Discussing the origins of the proposal in BBF, the development timeline of the standard to date, the technical challenges faced, the controversial issues resolved, the main technical aspects of the standard and the current status.

  10.00 BT: Report from a Trial  
In October 2013, BT and Huawei deployed a multiport G.Fast prototype unit into the BT network at a distribution point (DP) location. Three triallists were then connected to the G.Fast DPU and onwards to the internet via 10G backhaul. This presentation shares some of the results and findings from this trial.

  12.00 Geographic Deployment and Cost studies for – Hybrid versus
Describing a geographic scenario study of the deployment feasibilities of Hybrid FTTH with The study itself details to a particular case of the Netherlands (dedicated to Amsterdam and Den Haag), but the conclusions may roughly hold for any dense city area elsewhere in the world.

  12.30 LUNCH  
  14.00 End-to-end Architecture for Networks
Analyzing trends in next-generation access and home networks, and how they will be affected by the widespread deployment of new technologies such as Discussing best practices and system architectures for integrating with other broadband technologies such as PON, Wi-Fi,, Carrier Ethernet, and IPTV.

  14.30 How to Deliver Gigabit Broadband  
Enabling a software-based architecture for Wi-Fi access point coordination and resource sharing can lead to effective speeds of over 1 Gbps per household. This dramatic broadband service transformation requires no new standards, no new hardware, and no large construction efforts. It can be realized by using existing mass-deployed technologies and by fully extending the concepts of network virtualization all the way to the access segment and the home network.

Dr. John Cioffi and Dr. George Ginis, ASSIA
  15.00 Key Factors besides the Standard to make a Successful Technology  
Discussing the challenges with the new Fiber To The Distribution Point (FTTDP) scenarios based on the field experience with Outside Plant DSLAMs and derive key factors besides the standard tool box which makes products an important part in the access network mixture.

Uwe Schmidtke, Adtran
  15.30 Facilitating Fiber Level Quality over Copper with a Traffic Adaptive Technology  
Fiber level quality over copper is now feasible. On the other hand, efficiency is not sacrificed. The higher performing modem can be implemented in an efficient manner, adapting its power consumption to the varying traffic needs. Combining both optimizations, minimizing the power consumption while maximizing performance is a major challenge in the success of the technology.

Rami Verbin, Sckipio
  16.00 Implementation Complexity along the Evolution from VDSL2 to
Sheding light on major building blocks of the DSL and transceivers with respect to complexity and technological challenges. In consideration of current and upcoming silicon technology nodes, the complexity challenges of are revisited and compared to the historic development of VDSL2.
