G.fast DPUs for connecting FTTB areas

Fibre-like speed at copper access deployment conditions!

FTTB (Fibre-to-the-Building) is an economical alternative to FTTH rollouts. With 4 to 24 ports and variable form factors, the G.fast DPUs MileGate 204x and MileGate 2144 are specifically designed for FTTB  installations - be it a rack installation or wall mounted. G.fast with 212 MHz profile provides nearly 2 Gbps via the building's existing copper-wire pairs.

Subscribers in residential and commercial buildings, where a high demand for bandwidth often goes hand in hand with an existing copper infrastructure, thus benefit from bandwidths in the gigabit range.

Thanks to the VDSL2 mode,  the DPUs allow seamless migration to higher bandwidths. Network operators can start with VDSL2 and switch to G.fast if demand grows.

G.fast DPUs highlights

High transmission rates via copper of the type that only optical fibre offers
G.fast 212MHz (MileGate 204x, MileGate 2144) and G.fast 106 MHz (MileGate 2012 and MileGate 2112) with VDSL2 fallback
Simple implementation of FTTB
Wall mounting – no additional enclosure needed
Passive coolig – absolutely no noise
Door lockable / intrusion alarm
Easy installation – no fixed “cable tail”
Number of subscribers flexible due to cascading
Management via CLI, SNMP, Netconf/Yang or web GUI, integrated in UNEM
Premium services mean quicker return on investment (RoI)
TV offering is flexible, with a combination of cable television and IPTV (MileGate 2012 and MileGate 2042 only)
