Solution targets South Korea, Japan and other Asian markets
Ramat Gan, Israel – October 11, 2016 – Sckipio Technologies and South Korean network infrastructure equipment maker HFR, Inc. announce the world’s first G.fast distribution point unit (DPU) that supports up to 24 subscribers in a single DPU. HFR’s solution leverages Sckipio’s award-winning G.fast technology and internal distributed vectoring capability to deliver the highest performance available on the market today.
“G.fast is a global technology, and Sckipio is surely the market leader,” said a spokesperson from HFR. “Together we are developing solutions that will transform the South Korean, Japanese and other large Asian markets by upgrading the old VDSL2 infrastructure to ultrafast broadband using G.fast.”
The HFR solution is optimized to deliver up to 500Mbps per subscriber while co-existing with 30a profile VDSL customers and utilizes Sckipio’s chipsets to achieve unsurpassed G.fast port density.
In June 2016, SK Broadband President Yin-Chan Lee publicly announced the intention to provide gigabit Ethernet speeds of up to 500Mbps with two strands (one pair) of existing copper telephone lines in old apartments via G.fast. This was in response to the certification of G.fast by the national technical standard established by the RRA, the South Korean National Radio Research Agency.
