Global Digital Loop Carrier System Market: Introduction

  • A digital loop carrier system (DLC system) is employed to provide narrowband and broadband services at the edge of a network. DLC system uses digital techniques to provide a wide range of services to users. A DLC system can manage large volumes of different types of data and audio or conferencing services from different types of transmission cables.
  • In telephone communication, a local loop is a physical connection between the telecommunication service provider and the main distribution frame in the user’s premises. With advancements in technology, local loops are being replaced by DLC systems. A DLC system uses digital transmission to convert analog signals into digital ones and to multiplex them back to the endpoint, thereby increasing the number of channels in the local loop.
  • DLC system can enable hundreds of conversations to ride over twisted-pair copper wires, thereby increasing the capacity of the installed cable plant. The geographic area served by a DLC system is called the carrier serving area (CSA).
  • A DLC system is generally installed within the distance of one mile from the customer premises, either in a secure hardened cabinet placed above the ground or in a weatherproof underground arrangement. The closer the DLC system is to the end-user, the shorter is the analog line and the greater is the outcome in terms of service delivery.

Global Digital Loop Carrier System Market: Dynamics

  • Consumers, both individual and corporate, demand rapid data and video services
  • Communication service providers need to allocate more bandwidth than ever before to provide high-speed Internet service. A DLC system is an efficient option to optimize the existing wired network to its full capacity.
  • DLC systems enable service providers to rapidly add, delete, or change customer services from their end-office only. This not only saves time, but also proves to be an economically viable option. Also, it eliminates the need to send an installation technician to the site.
  • DLC systems also help in meeting the rising demand for additional lines of phones, fax, and data in commercial and residential areas, which is generated due to the existing limited wire (copper) deployment. These systems offer a speedy solution for filling pending orders and reduce labor and equipment costs associated with the line installation.
  • Communication service providers need to re-evaluate their existing network planning models and create a new model to accommodate a DLC system. The key challenge is how to effectively utilize the existing network for voice and data services. All these require considerable investments by service providers, which is a big investment decision.
  • Certain political scenarios/regulations restrict some key players from providing their DLC systems in a certain geography. Such policies have discouraged the market competition.
