Karel Adriaensen, Director of Product Management, Technicolor technology permits gigabit services to be delivered over the last few hundred metres of copper cabling to permit service providers to roll-out inexpensive ultra-broadband by obviating the cost and difficulty of connecting fibre directly to consumer's homes. As Karel Arriaensen explains, Technicolor is now providing gateways that will be deployed in bulk in 2017. Ultra-broadband capability will be the pre-requisite if CSPs are to take full advantage of the expected consumer popularity of new immersive technologies and services such as virtual reality and augmented reality and is complementary to other broadband technologies. What's more, standardisation is complete as are the proofs of concept, chipsets are becoming available, services providers are evaluating and trialling and the first commercial deployments will happen within a few months. Now, where's that VR headset?
