Hybrid DSL-LTE access: getting even more out of the copper network

Tuesday 19 January 2016 | 09:20 CET | Author: Corina Schultz | Background
Swisscom is the latest operator to announce plans to test a broadband service using both the DSL and LTE access networks. Another example of the growing convergence of fixed and mobile networks, hybrid DSL-LTE access, also known as LTE bonding, uses the high bandwidth of the LTE network to boost speeds for DSL customers in areas with limited bandwidth. In addition to helping improve speeds and coverage in rural areas far from DSL exchanges, the technology offers a way for operators to get more out of their existing copper networks and LTE investments, without significant additional costs.
