Sckipio and IPhotonix Announce G.fast NFV Partnership
Sckipio Technologies, the leader in G.fast modems, and iPhotonix, an industry innovation leader for the network functions virtualization (NFV), cloud transformation and fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) technologies, today announced a partnership to ensure easy deployment and management of G.fast DPU devices by telcos globally. The partnership will enable the iPhotonix Virtual Network (iVN) to fully interoperate with Sckipio’s industry-leading G.fast solution, which supports the most simultaneous subscribers and the highest rate and reach. Read the entire announcement.
The Sckipio chipsets are the first production chipsets to be fully compliant with the entire ITU standard and operate over the full 2-106MHz of bandwidth for the highest possible performance. They support time division duplexing for flexible configurations and support discontinuous operation for ultra low power consumption. Sckipio chips comes with built-in, fully compliant vectoring for the most advanced cross-talk mitigation. To deliver breakthrough link robustness, the chipsets also come with Fast ORL and fast retraining times.
The Sckipio solution leverages two highly efficient system architectures to deliver the lowest cost per megabit delivered and managed. Sckipio combines the breakthrough new FTTdp architecture which provides for lower capital expenditures (no powering the DP) and lower operating expenses (no trenching or in-home installations) with a highly integrated, compact reference design that results in a lower bill of materials (BOM) cost
Sckipio is creating many new ways for service providers to deliver a truly superior consumer experience including the elimination of in-home installation hassles, the highest uptime due to Fast OLR, fast retraining and a G.Int buffer. Sckipio also supports flexible upstream and downstream to meet the upcoming consumer applications like multichannel Ultra HDTV, cloud based services, telemedicine, the Internet of Things (IoT), and distance learning.
G.fast provides up to 1Gbps of ultra broadband access to consumers over their existing copper telephone wiring by moving the broadband connections to the distribution points that are close to the home.
There has never been a more effective or cost-efficient broadband access technology. G.fast delivers fiber performance for as little as 10% of the cost to deploy FTTH.
G.fast is much more reliable than traditional xDSL technologies and will have fewer lost connections, more stable performance and faster recovery times if trouble occurs than any other copper-wired solution.
G.fast doesn’t require an in-home installation. The service is provisioned outside the home and a homeowner is given a customer-installable device. This saves hassles for both the consumer and the telcos.
Through new remote management and monitoring tools and better design for working with existing infrastructure, G.fast is expected to be a ultra-low cost technology to manage.
G.fast is the best technology to deliver ultra broadband to consumers who live in apartment buildings and other multi-dwelling units. The technology leverages existing copper wiring in hard-to-access buildings and provides a way for service providers to affordably work with building owners to deliver the performance they all want.
