As reported by the Federal Network Agency, the supervisory authority has defined the latest details for vectoring and has clarified technical, operational and legal details. Telecom and other market players can start with the expansion of the near areas and tap into them with vectoring. The Bundesnetzagentur is monitoring compliance with the expansion commitments already made.
“The standard offer defined by the Federal Network Agency is a model agreement which contains the concrete conditions for the use of the Vector in the near areas,” explains the Federal Network Agency. “This includes, in particular, the termination rules for the subscriber line (TAL) used for VDSL at the main distributors and the regulations for the migration to other intermediate products. It also includes the design of the alternative VULA access product, which must be very close in its characteristics of the unbundled TAL. “
