Ericsson has showcased broadband VDSL2 technology in Nigeria, achieving data transfer rates of up to 0.5Gbps. The new technology provides greater bandwidth than traditional ADSL, and will allow operators to offer customers low-cost, high-performance connectivity and services such as HDTV and video-on-demand (VoD). Hakan Eriksson, CTO of Ericsson said: ‘This demonstration confirms Ericsson’s leadership in broadband access technology and our commitment to the continued research and development of DSL technology to improve operators’ business with new access solutions. It also proves Ericsson’s abilities to provide future mobile backhauling, which will enable quick and cost-effective introduction of long term evolution (LTE) solutions.’
