OTE's New Technologies Laboratories undertake the evaluation and testing of the new Vectoring broadband technology for the entire Deutsche Telekom Group, in which the most suitable company per case leads the project for the entire Group. Vectoring technology can even double the speed of VDSL up to 100Mbps download and 40Mbps upload, eliminating the "noise" on copper wires.
2012 has already known the intention of DT communications giant to invest so-called vectoring to double the speed of Internet access via VDSL. Vectoring is likened to noise reduction technology in headphones as it undertakes to reduce the "noise" in data traffic on copper wires. Copper remains the instrument linking households to outdoor telecommunication equipment cabins (KAFAO) and fiber optic networks of communications companies. This is because replacing it with fiber up to home and within it increases costs and is not often a choice of providers. Vectoring can allow data to be transmitted at speeds twice as high as those achieved today by VDSL2 technology (100Mbit / s download, 40Mbit / s upload).
In the vectoring technology, the DT Group head has also been extensively reported, René Obermann, in an interview with 2012 in September, referring to DT's intention to use vectoring technology to implement the communications company's plans to double the number of broadband connections in Germany by 12 to 24 million households within four years, a huge leap for broadband in Germany ".
The head of Deutsche Telekom for Europe and Technology and member of the board of directors of OTE, Ms. Claudia Nemat recently met with executives of the OTE Group in Maroussi, as part of her regular visits to various European countries in her area of responsibility. According to Ms. Nemat, the main goal is to strengthen the cooperation between the companies and the teams of the Deutsche Telekom Group and to decentralize the responsibility, with the companies in each country leading different projects on behalf of all the participating countries, while the central offices in Bonn to play a mainly coordinating role. In this operating model, which Ms. Nemat called "United Nations of Europe", the most appropriate company in each case leads the project for the whole Group. As it was emphasized, with this new form of cooperation, the greatest utilization and diffusion of the know-how and specialization is achieved among the countries that the DT Group has a presence in Europe.
Examples of this new approach by Deutsche Telekom Europe have been reported
- the assignment to OTE's New Technologies Laboratories of the evaluation and testing of the new Vectoring broadband technology for the entire Deutsche Telekom Group and
- Greece (Cosmote) undertakes the services and pricing systems of T-Mobile Netherlands, as is already the case for its other subsidiaries.
