This new product offers the widest flexibility to provide service providers with a Multimode DSL solution that enables legacy data and new triple-play services which can be installed now in ADSL networks and automatically connect to VDSL2 as it is deployed in the network.
The CT-5371 includes four 10/100 Base-T Ethernet ports and a single USB port to provide wired LAN connectivity along with an integrated 802.11n WiFi WLAN Access Point (AP) for wireless connectivity. The DSL interfaces are provided through the use of a scalable DSL transceiver from Broadcom(R) Corporation, which offers the flexibility to meet all required and optional advancements in support of the new VDSL2 standard, including both ATM and Ethernet transport, dual latency and dual interleaving, flexible transmit power, full control over spectral usage, and performance optimizing framing, filtering and provides rates of up to 100 Mbps.
The CT-5371 is capable of handling IP video with true traffic management with the use of traffic specific Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs). Subscribers can watch television programming while simultaneously sharing a data network for e-mail, audio downloads and voice on a single device. The use of Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping and IGMP proxy provides for proper traffic control of IP multicast packets.
