A cost effective topology migration path towards fibre
If an operator has as starting position a Full Copper topology in which ADSL or VDSL is offered from the Central Office, the next choice he has to make is to provide Full FttH or use an other topology option, e.g. FttCab, first as intermediate step to provide a next gen...
