Vectoring in Ireland


[link to this post]
 
Starting to see evidence of vectoring being activated in Ireland.

One person seen a large jump in their max-attainable speed (from 85Mbps to 125Mbps), and another who has gone to a 100Mbps profile.

Are they using any ECI cabs in Ireland?

Definitely use Huawei, not 100% sure on eci.

Love how other telecoms companies don't over analyse too much, eircom aren't limiting their fttc product to 80Mbps downstream.
Don't get me wrong though, wouldn't choose eircom over BT if I had the choice.

Possibly the fact that there are more FTTC cabinets in the UK with many users already getting good speeds; that roll out requires not only a modification to each cabinet but all modems connected to it have to be G-Vector capable for the system to work, and the simple matter of 'who pays'.

And, of course, I forgot to mention ongoing concerns about BT Wholesale's capacity.

Working right to the limits as per usual, just as well we don't have too much fttp, we'd all fall down one big svlan shaped hole.
Is it not just the eci cabinets that need hardware swopped out? Maybe I misread that.

To get node-level vectoring, which is probably needed, the current Huawei cabinets will need new backplanes that are capable of transferring the vectoring data between cards. That's the way I read the Huawei specs, anyway.

That means the card-cage holding the active DSLAM electronics needs to be dismantled, although it is probably more likely that a swap-out - swap-in process would be used, to minimise downtime. It is still a longer process than just adding cards, or changing connectors on the front panel.

But who knows: the trials that BT are undertaking/extending might be trials of different deployment options, to see if they can minimise the need for swapping hardware.
