09 May Light Reading Editor in Chief Visits Sckipio
Ray Le Maistre, Editor in Chief of Light Reading, recently visited Sckipio’s headquarters to get a first look at Sckipio and meet with our visionary co-founder and CEO, David Baum.
Watch the video interview between Ray and David here:
David talked about the increasing demand for G.fast technology and how the concept of G.fast has expanded and driven growth and excitement. G.fast was originally intended as a short-distance technology. Now Sckipio has proven that it can be used up to 500 meters, and there are currently tier 1 service provider field trials at 300 and 400 meter distances. In addition, Sckipio has increased the number of vectoring ports available, which further increases demand in cabinets and MDUs.
David also demonstrated some exciting new innovations around re-training times and the use of SFPs to reduce the cost of migrating from VDSL to G.fast
