TDC to make investments in 1 Gbps broadband network in Denmark

TDC Group has decided to make investments to upgrade its coaxial network to deliver broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps in Denmark.

The company has selected Huawei for the broadband network deployment.

TDC Group start working on 1 Gbps broadband network this summer and will complete the project by the end of 2017. This will make Denmark the first country to upgrade an entire cable network to “Giga COAX” offering super-speed connectivity over cable networks.

TDC Group, as a global leading MSO, is innovating technologies and deployed the first D3.0 network in Europe. The D3.1-compliant architecture involves network-wide end points, optical nodes, amplifiers, passive splitters, and corresponding engineering services, to provide ground-breaking speeds and connectivity.

“We are opening a super highway of digital entertainment services, where the sky – not the speed – is the limit. Already before the end of 2017, half of all Danish households will have access to 1 Gbps speeds – 10 times faster than the political objectives for the year 2020,” said Pernille Erenbjerg, CEO of TDC Group.

As broadband traffic grows 50 percent each year, MSOs need to upgrade their coaxial networks to the gigabit level in order to offer IP-based and customized video services and deal with competition from FTTH.

D3.1 adopts the advanced OFDM modulation mode and improves data transmission capability by 50 percent compared with that of D3.0. With D3.1, one coaxial cable can provide a maximum bandwidth of 2 Gbit/s uplink and 10 Gbit/s downlink. MSOs can reuse existing coaxial line resources to quickly deploy future-oriented next-generation D3.1 networks for gigabit service offerings and a competitive power against FTTH.

Huawei distributed D3.1 D-CCAP solution can save a number of analog components and optical fibers, facilitating network capacity expansion. Deployment of D-CCAP devices at optical nodes enables reliable capacity expansion. In addition, telecoms can deploy D-CCAP and FTTH on a unified platform.

Huawei’s D3.1 D-CCAP solution digitizes office equipment rooms to reduce the number of devices and required space by more than 80 percent.
