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.’
