Re: Interesting and massive challenge one way to make FTTdp more economically feasible is by using reverse power feed from the CPE and eliminates the need to hook up the DPU to local. Not only it would save the smart meter hook up costs, but also allow telcos more flexibility with installations.

Interesting and massive challenge G.fast as a mass market tech depliyed at milliosn of distribution points doesn't stack up economically, so it needs to be deployed from street cabinets.

IF (and I stress the IF) the chipset and system vendors can get G.fast to deliver 300-500 Mbit/s over copper loops of more than 300 meters that is a GAME CHANGER for incumbent telcos.

so the question is - can the ecosystem deliver? And can it deliver in time?
