ADSL plus is currently being deployed worldwide as the new mainstream broadband technology for residential and business customers. But at the same time, the industry is gearing up for the next step of the DSL evolution: VDSL. This second version of the very high-speed digital subscriber line (VDSL) standard from ITU-T promises to deliver 100Mbps symmetrical traffic on short copper loops. The greater bandwidth of VDSL gives telecommunications operators the ability to offer advanced services such as multiple streams of interactive standard and high-definition TV over IP over the existing copper plant.
