U.K. telecom provider BT Group plc has selected Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd to supply them with DSL equipment for its SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) trial. BT's latest line of SDSL products is expected to enable providers to supply business users symmetric broadband access at speeds of up to 2Mbps and to complement their existing range of ADSL services.

To support the SDSL service, BT will use Fujitsu's FDX xDSL Access Platform. The addition of a SHDSL (Single-pair High-speed Digital Subscriber Line in accordance with G.991.2) line card module will transform the FDX into a system capable of supporting both ADSL and SDSL services simultaneously. Initially, the SDSL trial will use standalone FDX platforms in London, but will be eventually rolled out in the future to any exchange that already has FDX installed for ADSL services.

"We are delighted that BT has chosen Fujitsu's FDX DSL platform for this important trial. Business users of data services are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits that affordable broadband can bring and we expect the new IPStream Symmetric and DataStream Symmetric services from BT to expand this market significantly," Simon Rees, Fujitsu's DSL sales director, said. "The enhancement of the FDX deployed base to support SDSL services is another milestone in Fujitsu's continuing involvement in the creation of Broadband Britain."
