Nokia, NBN demo 8 Gbps XG-Fast tech in Australia lab trial

Tuesday 18 October 2016 | 08:52 CET | News
Nokia and Australia's NBN have completed an XG-Fast trial that achieved throughput speeds of 8 Gbps in lab conditions. XG-Fast, a Nokia Bell Labs-developed extension of Nokia's G.fast technology, is designed to enable operators to generate fiber-like speeds of more than 10Gbps over short distances using existing copper infrastructure. With a significant proportion of NBN's nationwide broadband network rollout being completed using existing copper networks, XG-Fast is being tested as a potential asset for future upgrades.
