copper and fibre optic hybrid broadband cables uk

26th August, 2017 - 12:01 am (52 Comments)

Researchers from ADTRAN and BT are working towards conducting the first lab trials of G.mgfast technology in 2019, which could become the successor to today’s hybrid-fibre G.fast technology and one that might conceivably push broadband speeds up to 5-10Gbps over traditional copper lines.

A couple of months ago we became the first to detail Openreach’s trial of a combined FTTdp and G.fast broadband network that used hardware from NetComm Wireless. Today NetComm has confirmed that their test achieved a peak aggregate broadband speed of 1.66Gbps.

Openreach (BT) has confirmed that they’re testing a new Fibre-to-the-distribution-point (FTTdp) style of G.fast broadband technology that mounts hardware from NetComm Wireless on top of telegraph poles, which shows that the operator hasn’t given up on FTTdp.

copper and fibre optic hybrid broadband cables uk

17th June, 2017 - 8:32 am (13 Comments)

Historically hybrid-fibre broadband services like VDSL (FTTC) rely on a mix of fibre optic and twisted-pair copper cables, although signal attenuation over the latter always ends up reducing performance over distance and the new G.fast (ITU G.9700/9701) technology is particularly susceptible.

California-based ASSIA, which supplies broadband management systems to ISPs, has today announce that “extreme high frequency sub-millimeter waves” could in the future be used to push broadband speeds of up to 1Tbps (Terabit per second) down a single 100 metre twisted-pair copper line.

The Broadband Stakeholders Group, which acts as a think-tank for government policy, has predicted that the cost of implementing the UK’s legally-binding 10Mbps Universal Service Obligation (USO) for broadband speed could be anything from £180m and up to £930m; depending upon the cost threshold.

Openreach BT UltraFast G.fast Fibre Broadband

7th January, 2017 - 12:01 am (65 Comments)

Openreach (BT) will on Monday officially start the deployment phase for their new pilot of ‘up to’ 330Mbps capable G.fast (ITU G.9700/9701) broadband technology, which by the end of March 2017 should have been rolled out to 138,000 homes and businesses in 17 places across the United Kingdom.

A new trial of the future XG.FAST technology, which could one day replace Openreach’s forthcoming G.fast based ultrafast broadband service, has beaten last year’s BT trial by pushing a peak aggregate speed of 8000Mbps over 30 metres of twisted-pair copper (BT achieved 5.6Gbps at a similar distance).

A new report from Ovum, which was jointly commissioned by BT and Australia’s nbn, has forecast that some 29 million subscribers will be using a G.fast based ultrafast broadband connection by 2021 (3% of the global fixed broadband market) and most of those will be in Western Europe.

The co-founder and CEO of Sckipio Technologies, David Baum, has suggested to ISPreview.co.uk that BT’s plan to roll-out 300Mbps G.fast broadband technology could save as much as £980 per home vs a pure fibre optic (FTTH/P) network and even faster speeds should be possible in the future.

14th June, 2016 - 2:24 pm (34 Comments)

We already know a lot about BT’s forthcoming roll-out of “ultrafast” 300-500Mbps G.fast technology and last month’s new technical document (here) similarly appeared to confirm that the operator had opted to deploy the service from street cabinet extensions. This week we finally got a look at one.

Israel-based Sckipio, which is building some of the kit for BT’s hybrid-fibre G.fast broadband trials and pilot, has heralded a big improvement to the technology by developing Dynamic Bandwidth Allocation (DBA) to deliver up to 1.5Gbps in combined upstream and downstream performance.

BT’s forthcoming 300-500Mbps G.fast broadband technology won’t just be used to upgrade homes. The operator has also claimed a “world first” by using the G.fast to supply a cellular Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) over copper lines, which could be used to support 4G and future 5G mobile services.

28th January, 2016 - 11:16 am (28 Comments)

Israel-based Sckipio, which is making some of the hardware for BT’s forthcoming hybrid-fibre G.fast (ITU G.9700/1) broadband tech, claims to have successfully tested a connection that delivers speeds of 300Mbps over 500 metres of copper cable and this could rise to 500Mbps. But there’s a catch.

8th December, 2015 - 9:10 am (18 Comments)

As expected BT are now starting their third 6 month trial of G.fast broadband technology (ITU G.9701), this time in Swansea (Wales), which will initially offer Internet download speeds of up to 330Mbps (50Mbps upload) before rising to 500Mbps over the next decade.

Israel-based Sckipio has made several announcements at the start of this week’s Broadband World Forum event, not least with their ability to squeeze a broadband speed of 2000Mbps out of the new G.fast (ITU G.9701) technology that BT are also preparing to roll-out. But there’s a catch.
