Adtran doubles G.fast speed with Dynamic Time Allocation

Tuesday 18 October 2016 | 14:50 CET | News

Adtran announced the availability of a new capability for G.fast deployments named Dynamic Time Allocation (DTA) that allows subscribers to maximise the total bandwidth of a G.fast connection by transmitting data upstream or downstream intelligently to provide a fibre to the home (FTTH) user experience. Adtran has been demonstrating this innovation to operators globally for low crosstalk G.fast environments, providing operators an alternative to installing Cat 6, Cat5e or fibre optic cable to provide symmetric Gigabit data rates.

DTA is suitable for low crosstalk environments such as single pairs or coaxial cable. Available as a software feature on its 500G series of G.fast products, the new DTA capability is set to be deployed by a Tier 1 US operator during its G.fast rollout later this year.

Adtran also announced the first set of network elements to take SDN beyond principal framework to actual product implementation in broadband access networks. These Software Defined Access (SD-Access) network elements leverage the Adtran Mosaic architecture to accelerate a service provider’s path to open, programmable and scalable networks. SD-Access architectures allow service providers to operate at web-scale, supporting expanded service flexibility and velocity.
