According to a newly published report by Dell’Oro Group, total global revenue for the Broadband Access equipment market increased to US$3.6 B in 2Q 2021, up 7% year-over-year (Y/Y). Growth came from spending on both Cable and PON infrastructure.
Two of NetComm's Gfast 212MHz fibre-to-the-distribution-point (FTTDP) products have become the first in the global market to achieve full interoperability certification under Broadband Forum's (BBF) ID337i2 Gfast/212MHz interoperability test plan.
Rolling out fibre to the home is an expensive exercise and alternative methods need to be found to provide people with broadband that can yield speeds above 100Mbps, the marketing and communications director of NetComm, Els Baert, claims.
NBN Co, the company rolling out Australia's national broadband network, says it will be adding G.fast technology to its technology mix next year, to enable faster speeds over copper wires.
Operators, vendors and analysts are set to discuss the latest developments in Gfast and NG-PON2 technologies at the end of this month.
The systems vendor list for certified-interoperable G.fast solutions has risen from 7 to 24, a three-fold jump, suggesting a solid future for the technology.
Gigabit speeds over FttDP based on Gfast using a reversed power fed Gfast DPU? NetComm and Openreach say they’ve achieved it in a world first.
The company building our broadband network is at it again, extolling the virtues of making data flow more quickly over existing copper lines rather than installing FttP connections.
The global non-profit Broadband Forum says the first six products have successfully completed the Gfast certification programme from the Forum and the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL).
Nokia says fixed networks will play a key role in achieving network transformation and true convergence with 5G mobile and IoT.
NBN Co has flagged it could deploy ultra-fast G.Fast or XG.Fast technology to underpin the rollout of its fibre to the curb (FttC) network to 700,000 premises, just as a new report by Ovum predicts an explosion in use of the new technologies worldwide over the next five years.
NBN Co and Nokia are looking at XG.Fast technology paired with FttDP, with trial speeds delivering from 5Gbps to lab results of 8Gbps over twisted pair copper lines.
