Yesterday, the 8th Telecommuncation annual meeting organized by the technical telecommunications engineers association took place. It was a very interesting event and this year one of the hot topics was the development of new services and infrastructures, and more specifically what they call digital cities. First of all, I do not like the name digital […]Read more "Digital cities and connected cities"
Today Benoît Felten’s post at Fiberevolution raised a very interesting point about xDSL and FTTH deployments. He states that this decade is the ADSL decade and next year will be the year of optic fiber. Maybe this is the case in France, but I doubt that this will happen in Spain, although some indicators may […]Read more "2010: the fiber year"
Now we are in a crisis situation. We all know this.

Today, EL PAIS published an […]Read more "Spain is different… also in R+D"
I found an interesting GPON tutorial that describes the basics of GPON systems. It is from FTTXtra and you can find it here.Read more "Interesting GPON tutorial"
I took this piece of text from http://www.fiercebroadbandwireless.com to develop this post. The Femto Forum and other industry experts have pointed out that LTE is approaching the theoretical maximum information transfer rate (otherwise known as Shannon’s Law) and further improvements will only be possible by rolling out smaller cells. The higher data speeds might not be achieved with LTE […]Read more "LTE and future mobile services will need fiber"
Now it is very common to talk about FTTH business models, but in this post, I want to follow a quite different road and talk about social models for FTTH. The problem that we have with the deployment of NGNs is that the investment is huge and network operators work on revenue basis (following business […]Read more "Business models and SOCIAL models for FTTH"
A couple of weeks ago, the FTTH council Europe published a list with the rankings of FTTH penetrations. Unsurprisingly, Spain was not even in the list. You can check the complete press release from the FTTH Council Europe link. The main conclusions about the report are: Northern countries are the most active FTTH players in Europe […]Read more "Where is Spain in the list?"
