This past week, Canada Connects worked with Critical Telcom, an innovative company in Ottawa to present "Driving Broadband to the Edge". The presentation by Nick Cadwgan, Head of Product Management for Critical Telecom addressed many of the issues involved in taking Fibre-To-The-Premise (FTTP) including staging these developments with various broadband delivery strategies including fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) and fibre-to-the-curb (FTTC). The need for this infrastructure becomes more and more evident as second generation Broadband applications become more available for the consumers.
The presentation was archived using the K-Net Breeze server and can be viewed at http://breeze.knet.ca/p13736530/ (if this is the first time you have used Breeze then you will need to click on yes to download the required plug-ins to be able to view the presentation). Critical Telecom has technologies available now that can extend DSL reach for thousands of Canadians that are still waiting for broadband services. Nick Cadwgan explains in detail all the issues now being faced by Canadian Telcos in getting DSL services into Canadian homes.
