World’s first G.fast solution to support DTA over multiple vectored lines concurrently
Ramat Gan, Israel – October 11, 2016 – Sckipio Technologies and Calix, Inc. announced a joint implementation of the world’s first collective dynamic time assignment (DTA) technology running on a 16-port vectored G.fast distribution point unit (DPU). This will allow broadband subscribers to gain access to the highest possible upstream and downstream capabilities that G.fast has to offer.
Earlier in the year, Sckipio announced the invention of DTA (also known as dynamic bandwidth allocation). At that time, DTA was only available on low crosstalk environments such as coax applications or single line scenarios. Now, close coordination between both Calix and Sckipio have resulted in the ability to push G.fast further by adding support for the higher density, higher-crosstalk environments that arise when twisted pair bundles are present.
The system is designed to listen for the demands of each consumer and to coordinate the upstream and downstream traffic to optimize the solution for the subscriber based on how he or she really uses broadband. As a highly sophisticated system, it analyzes traffic across all the ports and optimizes the performance for the entire system to ensure the highest overall performance at all times – resulting in the highest customer satisfaction.
“Broadband success is all about technologies that enable anyone to provide modern bandwidths to everyone,” said Greg Whelan, Principal Analyst, Greywale Insights. “Cities and buildings face the same barrier to success– the embedded base of wires. The advances in G.fast eliminates this and should fuel broadband success around the globe.”
