Independent telecommunications body, the Communications Alliance, has unveiled draft standards on customer equipment needed for Very High Speed Digital Subscriber Line 2 (VDSL2) - the next generation of broadband technology.

According to the Communications Alliance, VDSL2 deployment will give businesses and consumers greater ability to use higher bandwidth services such as high definition television, video streaming and interactive gaming over the existing copper telephone network. It can also operate at speeds more than 10 times faster than the ADSL technology most commonly used in Australian broadband services today.

The draft standards released by the Communications Alliance are designed to ensure suppliers can provide customer equipment (e.g. broadband modems, PBX systems etc) that will be compatible with the new VDSL2 services when they become available in Australia.

For instance, customers could buy broadband modems suitable for their existing ADSL services and not need to replace them when upgrading to VDSL2 in the future.

The draft standards have been developed by a Communications Alliance Working Committee of technical experts representing a cross-section of the industry and are aligned with international recommendations as well as local requirements.
