Copper has not died yet, the life cycle will be extended

At present, in the global broadband access market, FTTH is the most mainstream of a way to access, as long-distance high-speed broadband to provide the best solution, and coaxial cable and MoCA technology in the short distance range can provide excellent performance. Therefore, even in this context of FTTH, there are still many companies and the Union optimistic about the future of copper.
Why we optimistic about copper cable?
1, copper cabling low cost, easy construction, non-shielded copper cabling for 10GBASE-T network transmission to provide more costly wiring costs.
2, can fully meet the 10GBASE-T network equipment in the distance of 100m connection needs, support 10G connection growth, you can get more bandwidth capacity.
3,10G copper connection can make the user's work efficiency is guaranteed, in the complex files, high-resolution images, dynamic images and video transmission process is not affected, the first time, the faster connection can greatly enhance the IP Telephone, web conferencing and distance learning in real-time sound and video quality.
4,10G copper for the server this performance, will soon be applied to the desktop. Although the data center and the backbone is the initial goal of 10GBASE-T, but a small number of ahead of the customer will recognize this point, the use of 10Gb/s unshielded copper cabling advantage will be extended to the desktop.
Where the copper has not yet died?
Market analysis data show that by the end of 2015, the world still has more than 300 million DSL broadband users, according to the survey of 35 operators worldwide data, they have DSL lines accounted for 43% of the world. In view of this, although FTTH, DOCSIS 3.1, LTE and millimeter wave transmission technology has its own advantages, but the copper-based expansion of broadband technology is still an important place in broadband access technology.
What technology can extend the copper life cycle?
As the growth of telecom operators profits become more difficult to extend the life cycle of the network is a good choice, in the original basis to enhance the access rate, in order to reduce costs and retain users. Previously, in the fixed-line broadband market has VDSL, and other technologies to extend the copper continue to emerge, and become a fixed-line operators continue the copper life. At present, can provide users with 500M-1Gbps access rate, and MoCA 2.0 can support 1 Gbps access rate, MoCA 2.5 can also provide up to 2.5 Gbps access rate, which is sufficient to meet the recent user speed Claim. It is worth mentioning that, MoCA (coaxial cable Multimedia Alliance) announced MoCA Access standard to provide users with 1Gbps access rate, and will enter the broadband access market, as a "fiber expansion" technology, MoCA Access Complement with fiber.
In recent years, telecom operators in order to meet the market demand to continuously upgrade the speed of broadband access, due to various reasons, light to change the technical reserves have not yet completed, and copper resources more abundant, higher cost of transformation, it can only through copper wire network technology to achieve high-speed Broadband access. High-speed copper technology has brought new market opportunities and extended the life cycle of copper.
