SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei today introduced the industry’s first SuperVector technology prototype. In laboratory testing with Europe’s leading operators, measured results show that the SuperVector prototype can achieve 400Mbps over 300 meters copper which is three times when compared with VDSL2 Vectoring, and 100Mbps over 800 meters copper which is suitable for 4KTV services.
With copper networks remaining a critical asset for telecom operators, Huawei continues to invest in copper innovation like SuperVector technology which boosts copper access speed when compared to VDSL2 Vectoring, and is suitable for bandwidth improvement based on the original copper site or for remote area broadband coverage. Specifically, SuperVector extends the frequency band from 17 MHZ to 35 MHZ, using the same DMT modulation and tone width as existing VDSL2 Vectoring to guarantee the system is backward compatible. Only spectrum extension has a limited effect on long distance copper. Further, Huawei has introduced an innovative coding technology, optimized signal spectrum, improved transmission efficiency, and significantly upgraded the potential of the copper access speed. SuperVector is also compatible with VDSL2 Vectoring terminals.
For operators, SuperVector will help achieve faster broadband, faster time to market, faster return on investment, and protection of network investment. SuperVector can help operators continue to improve access speeds based on existing DSLAM, FTTC, FTTB sites, avoiding problems of moving the site down such as powering, line reconstruction, site engineering, and so forth. SuperVector will also serve useful for long distance copper broadband coverage in rural areas. In addition, SuperVector supports smooth network upgrades through backward compatible features effectively protecting the investment of operators.
The world’s leader in broadband network technology, Huawei launched the industry first VDSL2 Vectoring and G.fast prototypes and products, and remains the leader in ultra-high speed copper access technology research. Huawei will continue to promote technology standardization and production, promoting cooperation across the industry chain. Huawei’s vision in the development of ultra broadband networks is to drive the industry to faster broadband, wider coverage, and a smarter connection, creating a better connected experience for end users.
