uk fibre optic fttc cable

28th June, 2015 - 9:22 am (5 Comments)

One of the biggest limitations in ultrafast fibre optic communications is that even optical signals can weaken over long distances, which requires expensive electronic regenerators (repeaters) to be placed along the route to boost the signal. But what if you didn’t need those? Future networks could be both faster and cheaper.

Proximus and Huawei have trialled a new upgrade for existing core fibre optic networks that could help to upgrade current capacity from 200Gbps (Gigabits per second) to 400Gbps or even 1 Terabits per second, which would be used to meet the ever rising data demands of modern broadband consumers.

Researchers working at the University of Washington appear to have become the first to harvest power using signals from home WiFi devices operating in the 2.4GHz radio spectrum band (note: an Asus RT-AC68U router was used for the demo), which allowed them to power several devices including a tiny camera.

The United Kingdom’s telecoms regulator has today signalled the start of yet another strategic review, which this time will examine the radio spectrum use of space-based science and satellite communication services. Ofcom’s review could affect the future availability of frequencies for 5G and other broadband technologies.

At least once every year, for the past decade or more, somebody somewhere has warned about an impending Internet “capacity crunch” or “crash” and today we have a new scare story. The crux of the problem is this, allegedly we’re going to run out of fibre optic capacity and electricity supplies might also struggle to keep pace with demand.

Nokia Networks and National Instruments (NI) have demonstrated a future 5G technology that can deliver peak rate Mobile Broadband data speeds of up to 10Gbps (Gigabits per second), but as usual there’s a catch in the choice of frequency band.

At present you generally need a stable 25Mbps broadband connection to run a single 4K (Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution) quality Internet video stream via Netflix (although the actual streams usually vary from 12-16Mbps) and some rival services, although the new V-Nova technology is promising to make three 4K streams fit down the same connection.

At present the next generation of 5G based Mobile Broadband networks haven’t even been defined and the first commercial services aren’t expected to surface until around 2020. But that hasn’t stopped the Government from putting an early investment towards the distant future 6th Generation (6G) replacement for 5G. Well, sort of.

Researchers working on the future 5th generation (5G) of Mobile Broadband technology at the University of Surrey in England claim to have achieved a staggering transfer speed of 1Tbps (Terabit per second), or 1,000,000Mbps (Megabits) in more familiar language, over their candidate technology.

A team of international scientists working out of Lancaster University in England have officially kicked off a new consortium called TWEETHER, which aims to harness the millimetre wave (mmW) radio spectrum (specifically 92-95GHz) in order to develop a new wireless network that could offer economical broadband connectivity with a capacity up to 10Gbps (Gigabits per second).

The past year has been all about technology and deployment, with the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK scheme dominating via its efforts to push BT’s 80Mbps capable Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC / VDSL2) service out to even more areas, but a lot more than that has happened. ISPreview.co.uk highlights some the key Internet technology, policy and anti-piracy developments of 2014 and predicts what might occur in 2015.

Key hardware for the next generation DOCSIS 3.1 cable broadband standard, which could eventually be used by Virgin Media (Liberty Global) to deliver top UK Internet download speeds of up to 10Gbps (Gigabits per second) and 1Gbps uploads via their predominantly urban network, has successfully passed its first interoperability tests.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU-T) has now given its final approval to the next generation G.fast (ITU G.9701) broadband standard, which in a few short years could replace BTOpenreach’s ‘up to’ 80Mbps FTTC service and potentially deliver up to around ten times the speed using similar hybrid fibre lines (mixed fibre optic and shorter copper).

Mobile operator EE has today announced that its new “Micro Network” solution, which is based on technology designed by Parallel Wireless, will be used to expand their 3G and 4G based Mobile Broadband and voice coverage to reach more than 1,500 rural communities, without the need for new cabling, by 2017 (i.e. locations where existing coverage is unreliable and fixed line home broadband is slow).
