BT tests G.Fast with Huawei

Monday 21 October 2013 | 15:33 CET | News
Huawei announced a technical field trial with BT of its G.Fast technology to boost the speed of copper lines to levels similar to fibre. Huawei said the technology has the possibility to support Gigabit speeds without causing the major upgrade disruption associated with fibre-to-the-premises technology. The G.Fast trial is located close to the BT Adastral Park R&D centre in Ipswich and includes multi-port G.Fast equipment installed in underground distribution points. G.Fast uses time division duplex (TDD) technology and supports up to 1 Gbps bandwidth access per twisted pair within a distance
