Leverage your existing copper wiring

G.fast has emerged as the latest technique to extend the life of a telecom’s existing copper network without the costs and challenges of deploying an all fiber-based Fiber network.

The demand for higher data rates is continuously increasing. Applications like cloud computing, video streaming, big data, and the Internet of Things drive these demands. Strong competition of cable network (DOCSIS 3.1) and LTE operators increases the pressure on traditional network operators to deliver high speed services. Furthermore, in-house installation is difficult and specific to each house.
FTTdp is an acronym for Fiber To The Distribution Point. It is very similar to FTTC (Fiber to the Curb) or FTTN (Fiber to the Node), but is one-step closer to the boundary of the customers’ premises, thus allowing near-gigabit speeds.
In a typical FTTdp deployments, a limited number of subscribers at a distance of up to 10-300m are linked to 1 fiber node.
A G.fast FTTdp fiber node is a small self enclosed box and can be set up outdoors (on a pole or underground) or indoors (in the basement or on the floor).

Technical & business benefits

The G.fast DPU and CPE are the right choices to reuse existing twisted copper pair / coaxial cables (P2P) based access networks to deliver ultra high bit rate (fiber alike) triple play services to customers.
G.fast technology based on ITU-T G.9700 and ITU-T G.9701 specifications provides triple play service at Gbps speeds.

  • Achieve fiber speed reusing existing copper infrastructure;
  • Deliver premises multi-play services (Voice-VoIP, Data-GbE, TV-IPTV and RF Overlay (only when using coax));
  • CPE Customer self installation;
  • Avoid licensing impairments;
  • Reverse power feed;
  • Indoor/outdoor mounting options.

Our solution

  • Support of all DPU virtualizer functionalities;
  • Netconf/Yang enabled solution;
  • Support of DPU offline management;
  • Support of ZTC:
    • The “Zero Touch Configuration” allows the automatic configuration of the DPU when it is connected to the network for the first time;
    • DPU’s IP address obtained through DHCP;
  • e2e connectivity, provisioning and monitoring;
  • Network programmability:
    • The exposure of all operations in a complete NBI allows the virtualization of the underlying network domain so that external Applications or higher hierarchy SDN Controllers can actually “program the network”;
    • Easy integration with third-party management/ information systems;
  • Ensure performance and reliability through the FCAPS.
