Realtek’s ‘end-to-end’ FTTdp solution with 212MHz G.fast


Leading global IC company Realtek has announced its enhanced Gigabit to the home over copper twisted pair and coax at a tech conference in Indonesia this week.

Realtek has released its ‘RTL986x family Fibre to the Distribution Point (FTTdp) solution’ at Broadband TV Connect Asia 2016 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The technology features ‘pioneering 212MHz G.fast technology’ and ‘further enhances the data rate on copper twisted pair and coax to over 1Gbps at 100 meter distance.’

On the Distribution Point Unit (DPU) side, Realtek says its ‘RTL9864 quad port G.fast transceiver can be cascaded to support higher port count systems.’

On the Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) end, Realtek says its ‘RTL9861, a single-port G.fast transceiver, compliments Realtek's RTL8685G VDSL2 (with 35b profile) premium CPE SoC to provide a single hardware multimode G.fast/VDSL/ADSL CPE.’

The company explains that ‘G.fast combines the best aspects of fibre and DSL to enhance Realtek's offering for FTTdp systems, including high-speed xPON, Carrier Ethernet Switch, and complete CPE solutions in FTTH, FTTB, and FTTC.’

In addition, the company says its G.fast solution ‘leverages the existing copper loop to the home to provide data rates of over 1Gbps in FTTB or FTTdp topologies.’

Realtek VP and spokesperson, Yee-Wei Huang said: "We are very excited to add 212MHz G.fast technology to our FTTx end-to-end solution product line-up.

"This will provide an optimised easy-to-install solution that meets demands for ever higher bandwidth-intensive services and facilitates Service Providers' deployment of Gigabit bandwidth throughout user premises,” Huang concluded.

Realtek advises it will be demonstrating this technology at Broadband TV Connect Asia 2016 at Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta, Indonesia on the 12 and 13th of April, 2016.
