Fujitsu demonstrate deployable TriplePlay ADSL solution

Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe, a leading supplier of high-performance telecommunications solutions, is highlighting the power and capabilities of currently available ADSL technology with their a fully operational TriplePlay service delivered using a single, conventional telephone line.
The service incorporates three main elements: live television and other video services, multiple telephone lines, and fast access to the Internet through both the PC and the TV.
In creating the TriplePlay network, Fujitsu’s objective is to show that ADSL technology can be used to deliver substantially more than just high-speed Internet access. It is capable of giving service providers a new cost platform from which to exploit the existing copper infrastructure to deliver high revenue, value-added services and applications, many of which can be offered over DSL access networks.
Fujitsu’s Marketing Director, Marc Curtis, said: “DSL offers an incredibly powerful platform that we believe is in danger of being under-utilised longer term. Our objective in setting up the TriplePlay ADSL network was to show service providers just what could be achieved today, with the technology that exists, and without having to invest in VDSL-based solutions. Once a network is in place that supports the basic TriplePlay services, the applications that can be created are virtually limitless, with a level of interactivity that no other platform can achieve.”
One of the key challenges in being able to provide a TriplePlay solution over DSL is the ability to support a scalable solution for broadcast television delivery. This requires network elements to be able to multicast downstream TV channels and to respond rapidly to channel changing requests from end users of the service - as well as providing quality of service guarantees so that, for example, Internet traffic does not adversely affect video and voice applications.
