Approach for GOLD

The approach to ensure that becomes a market success is to spread know-how about where and how to deploy in the most optimal (economical) manner, and where to select what type of backhauling and powering option. The planned work within GOLD includes:

  • Feasibility studies and development of alternative backhauling and powering options.
  • Measurements, modelling and simulations of physical layer behaviour of the network at higher frequencies and of performance.
  • Coexistence studies with legacy DSL and in-home technologies.
  • Studies including lab and field trials on the robustness of solutions and associated Zero Touch solutions.
  • Support on decision making via geographic topology studies on deployment.

The GOLD projects focus is on and to explore the possibilities of multiple-gigabit copper access to go beyond the first standard.
