Since the beginning of the 21st century, access technologies have rapidly evolved to meet consumer demands. Whereas ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) evolved and flourished to connect them to the Internet, VDSL2 (Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line Version 2) emerged to enable them to take advantage of the age of video communication. Spurred by the YouTub generation, video has become the primary traffic element on the Internet and is currently projected to account for 50% of all internet traffic by 2012. Enabling the offering of robust triple play services, VDSL2 allows service providers to extend triple play services with the bandwidth requirements of new services. The average bandwidth requirements for a home are evolving as different tiers of video services become available.
