Original Press Release:
300 Mbps VDSL Right Now - Lantiq Introduces New Fiber-to-the-Distribution Point Solution
New Chipset and Systems from Leading OEMs Commercially Available Now
MUNICH, Germany and NEUBIBERG, Germany – Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, today announced commercial availability of VINAX(TM) dp, an application-optimized Fiber to the Distribution Point (FTTdp) chipset. With the new offering, Lantiq provides Telcos and DSL Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with an immediate solution to counter competitive offerings from Cable providers and to meet network performance goals set by government broadband initiatives.
The Lantiq VINAX dp chipset enables aggregated 300 Mbps over VDSL2 at distances up to 200m between a customer premise gateway and the fiber network distribution point. Based on Lantiq's carrier-grade VDSL2 chips developed for line card applications, the new chip set operates in industrial temperature ranges and the low power consumption of the FTTdp unit enables installation in outdoor boxes with passive cooling.
FTTdp is available today and is a cost-effective alternative to Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) network topologies for many broadband access installations. FTTH requires the fiber to be deployed all the way into a customer's premise, which is costly and may not be practicable in many scenarios. Since it can be line-powered from the customer premise, the FTTdp unit can be placed conveniently in carrier managed locations, while on the subscriber end, the standard VDSL CPE and power feeder is self-installed.
Key Features of the VINAX(TM)dp
-- Tightly integrated Lantiq carrier-class VDSL2 and GPON (FALCa ON) solution
-- 300 Mbps aggregated data rate with G.INP (retransmission) downstream and upstream
-- Based on mature, future proof (VINAX CO platform) technology with demonstrated interoperability on both ends for GPON and VDSL links. Typical power consumption is 2.7 Watt for the VINAX dp chipset. The entire system consumes less than 6 Watts - including VDSL, GPON, DC/DC converter and all other active and passive components.
Lantiq has partnered with several leading equipment manufacturers including Alcatel Lucent, ZTE, T&W, Aethra Telecommunications and others for successful field trials of its FTTdp solution around the world and commercial systems are available now. Additional information is available in a video interview, with Lantiq FTTdp expert Stefan Hirscher, a background article on the Lantiq FTTdp solution and at http://www.lantiq.com/fttdp.
Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, offers a broad and innovative semiconductor product portfolio for next-generation networks and the Digital Home. More Information about Lantiq is available on our Website or via Twitter @Lantiq, LinkedIn and YouTube.
