It's fair to say that TDC is not an ultra-broadband technology snob. The Danish national operator has proven it is prepared to deploy a range of technologies that best suit its commercial and operational needs, with the proviso that customers are getting the "best connections."
It plans to use all of these options to achieve its strategic goal of providing 70% of Denmark's 2.8 million households with more than 100Mbit/s connectivity. Of those near 2 million households, TDC is aiming to deliver gigabit connectivity to about 1.4 million households (50% of Danish homes).
As part of its technology mix, TDC is deploying technology based on the ITU VDSL2 35b standard as an upgrade to its existing VDSL2 17a deployment. VDSL2 35b is capable of delivering broadband speeds of up to 200 Mbit/s over distances of 500 meters.
TDC's Chief Operating Officer Peter Trier Schleidt noted in a press release about the deployment, which is being undertaken with technology dubbed "Vplus" from Nokia: "We want to do even better, particularly for rural areas, and therefore we are very pleased that Vplus technology lets us use our old copper connections in new ways to benefit our customers. We expect many customers to experience a clear improvement in their broadband speeds and entertainment offerings when we roll out Vplus technology."

We will explore several fiber network environments, common vulnerabilities, and the business impact of failures. Fiber networks are typically a combination of owned and leased fiber. Learn how to reduce MTTR by up to 60% when an event occurs and how to detect degradation before it generates a service impact. Fiber monitoring of leased fiber helps ensure that the responsible party is dispatched for repair and SLAs can be managed. We will discuss both in service and out of service monitoring. Learn about the opportunities to improve business results in the following environments:
Hyperscale datacenters- the business need for near 100% uptime
5G small cell combined with leased fiber - ensuring the SLA for leased fiber
Long haul and Metro dark and lit fiber monitoring - reducing MTTR and preventing damage
FTTX construction and service activation in the access or MSO network - accelerating time to revenue
