HSINCHU, Dec. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - EcoNet (HK) Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MediaTek Inc.
and a leader in semiconductor solutions for fixed line broadband
communications, today announced a high performance FTTdp
(Fiber-to-the-Distribution Point) platform to allow up to 310Mbps
aggregate data rate up to a distance of 200 meters by leveraging
EcoNet's superior performance of VDSL2 and PON access technologies.
FTTdp is a revolutionary fiber/copper hybrid approach. Fiber arrives to
the basement of the building or to the door of a subscriber's house and
VDSL2 is used over the existing copper pairs, which could be more
cost-effective than deploying FTTP/FTTH. FTTdp functions as a media
converter, terminating a PON fiber access line at the neighborhood
distribution point and connecting to a standards-based VDSL2 gateway in
the subscriber's residence.
"As subscribers increasingly expect advanced triple-play services from
service providers, EcoNet had dedicated to developing high performance
VDSL2 and PON access products. As a result of collective efforts,
EcoNet's MT7510 just becomes one of the first VDSL2 solutions certified
in China a few weeks ago, and will be deployed in China Telecom networks," stated Bomin Wang, CEO of EcoNet.
"Our integrated FTTdp platform combines the best of both worlds. By
bringing together EcoNet's VDSL2 and PON expertise with innovative
system architecture, it not only sets a new performance benchmark, but
also enables service providers to deploy CapEx effective services today
offering significantly higher data rate performance."
