Lab trials proving latest G.fast innovations, 212Mhz and cDTA, will
accelerate deployment of ultra-fast and gigabit broadband services
DARMSTADT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 18, 2017--
Inc., (NASDAQ: ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation open
networking solutions, today announced the start of lab testing of the
latest innovations in the G.fast standard, 212MHz and coordinated
dynamic time allocation (cDTA) together with Deutsche Telekom (DT). DT
is evaluating these ultra-broadband technologies using
Fibre-to-the-Building (FTTB) deployment models allowing the use of
existing cable infrastructure within the home. This will allow the rapid
deployment of ultra-fast and gigabit broadband services with minimal
disruption. The low cost per subscriber connection pays directly into
achieving European Commission’s Gigabit Society goals.
ADTRAN demonstrated the new 212MHz G.fast standard, which doubles the
usable spectrum. This doubling of the usable spectrum allows service
providers to deliver gigabit rates over a single copper pair, enabling
robust fibre-like service delivery all the way to the customer premise.
In contrast to cable systems, the bandwidth of G.fast is dedicated and
available for each customer. The tests, leveraging the first
commercially available 212MHz DPU also demonstrated the second phase of
DTA. cDTA, like the earlier iDTA feature, improves G.fast upstream
performance by four to five times by dynamically balancing upstream and
downstream capacity to match residential traffic patterns in real-time.
cDTA also expands the applicability of this feature to existing phone
wiring, thus covering nearly all residential and commercial premises.
“Operators in highly competitive, dense urban or urban environments are
challenged to extend gigabit services due to the time and cost that can
be associated with pure play FTTH techniques,” said Jay Wilson, senior
vice president at ADTRAN. “With G.fast innovation, operators, such as
DT, can significantly accelerate Gigabit Society goals by launching
gigabit services over their existing infrastructure dramatically
reducing subscriber disruption.”
These two most recent G.fast advancements, 212MHz and cDTA, extract even
greater overall performance from an operator’s existing assets, and in
many scenarios, eliminates the need for full FTTH for years. For the
first time, these G.fast innovations enable service providers to more
rapidly and cost-effectively extend symmetric gigabit services and
expand ultra-fast broadband to the wider market.
