The Broadband Forum has announced three new Technical Reports (TRs) in supporting telecom operators around the world with Very High bit-rate Digital Subscriber Line 2 (VDSL2) deployments. VDSL2 is the highest bandwidth copper-based broadband option available today, and effectively supports multimedia applications including IPTV. VDSL2 can be deployed alone or in conjunction with local fiber deployments.

TR-114 provides a set of performance requirements and test methods that assure a consistent level of performance between the Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM) in the network and the Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) – giving providers a high confidence level when deploying VDSL2 multi-play services such as IPTV.

TR-115 boosts chipset functional interoperability to create improved interworking and increased competition in the market.

Addressing a different aspect of DSL service quality, TR-138 enhances the reporting accuracy for better management of VDSL2 and ADSL2+ modems.
