Introduction to IPT Broadband

IP Telecom offers VDSL (very high-speed digital subscriber line) broadband internet connection. VDSL offers higher speeds and better connectivity than the more common ADSL access.

Currently, IP Telecom offers two types of VDSL access:

  • FTTH (Fibre to the home)
  • FTTC (Fibre to the cabinet)

Figure 1 outlines the broadband access for VDSL (FTTH and FTTC) versus ADSL.

IPT Broadband is dependent upon the last mile of the access side to the customer premises through open eir NGA network.

NGA rollout

Two variants of next generation access (NGA) broadband are available:

  • POTS-Based (PB)
  • Standalone (SA)

POTS-Based As background, POTS-based (plain old telephone service) is the same as SB-WLR (single billing-wholesale line rental). Orders are submitted and inventory is managed by telephone number. IP Telecom do not offer this variant of NGA.

Standalone

• The Standalone variant uses the same copper pair from the cabinet/ eVDSL DSLAM to the customer premises but there is no dial tone enabled. • A CRN (Customer Reference Number) is used instead of telephone number. The format is STD and telephone number i.e. 88xx-1234567

• 8881 = Standalone FTTC • 8882 = Standalone FTTH

Figure 3 shows the nationwide broadband rollout, for more information see fibrerollout.ie.
