|Supports 20 Gbit/s upstream transmission and 1 Gbit/s access.
Pioneers the use of G.fast, an innovative high-bandwidth copper access technology. G.fast enables networks to use wider spectrums to provide up to 1 Gbit/s symmetric or asymmetric bandwidths over the traditional twisted pairs. With G.fast, copper networks can meet the growing bandwidth demands from users.
G.fast maximizes the use of existing copper resources in mature residential areas, allowing copper networks to compete with fiber networks in terms of access bandwidths, and enabling faster access, faster deployment, and shorter return on investment (ROI) cycle.
In the upcoming cloud service era, new applications that require higher upstream and downstream bandwidths will become mainstream. Such applications include user image file (such as massive numbers of family videos) sharing, 4K, 8K, and virtual reality (VR). G.fast allows carriers to define upstream and downstream rates, use existing copper resources to support fledgling services such as home video communications, remote home surveillance and security protection, and city surveillance.
