Advanced Internet applications like IPTV, Triple-Play, online gaming, and etc. were all boosted in most of the major markets worldwide. In the middle of 2006, Deutsche Telecom covers 2.9million homes in 10 major cities in Germany with Fiber+VDSL2 (IDATE, 2007). By the end of 2010, VDSL will account for nearly 20% of the market and the upstream bandwidth will increase dramatically by Web2.0 applications (IDC, 2007). Telco/ISP invests and relies on the equipment with Next-Generation technologies to fulfill bandwidth-driven services above. ZyXEL VES-1608/1616 series VDSL2 outdoor switch was segmented for Last Mile of high bandwidth demand leveraging fiber optic and VDSL network. Easily mounted to the wall of building, pole, Telco’s new services can be deployed and delivered to home users rapidly. It helps to deliver the best solution to end-users and broaden the market as a revenue-driven tool.

2. Environment Harden Design to Optimize Deployment/Maintenance Cost
Telco provides services extensively to the users and highly depends on the infrastructural readiness. FTTx is well-known as a state-of-the-art solution for broadband access but the dilemma of fiber implementation and cost and is still higher than expectation. Various DSL broadband services need to be deployed all the way from Telco's central office (CO), street cabinets, basement of the residential buildings, to homes. ZyXEL Environmental Harden VDSL2 switch plays the role to bridge the gap between service provides and users. It was designed for small amount of users (8~16 each) to hang on the pole along the roads or the wall outside of the buildings. Environmental harden fan-less mechanism meets the strict industrial standards of air, water, and temperature. CAPEX (Capital expenditures) and OPEX (Operational Expenditures) will be optimized through fast and cost-effective deployment and easy maintenance to guarantee the best ROI (Return of Investment).

It is an obligation to make sure the service go smooth and network resources optimized. Service delays lag, or even breakups might not critical to data access but it is critically unbearable to advanced applications especially like IPTV, VOD, VoIP, and online gaming. ZyXEL provides dedicated QoS like VLAN, multicasting, priority queue, classifier, policy rule, and traffic shaping. It helps to monitor, analyze, and modify networking setting and status. Advanced features like IGMP Snooping, MVR, MAC Filtering could even optimize the data or video streaming in the traffic loading.
