Westell Boosts ADSL2+ Performance

Posted: 05th May, 2005 By: MarkJ
Westell claims to have enhanced broadband ADSL2+’s "bit-rate and service capabilities". The news comes long before services supporting the forthcoming standard have even had a chance to surface:

BASINGSTOKE, UNITED KINGDOM: May 5th, 2005 - PacketFront, the world leader in FTTH technology and next generation broadband aggregation, together with Westell, announces today a unique solution that greatly enhances the bit-rate and service capabilities for ADSL2+ users.

The unique solution, built for Mälarenergi Stadsnät in Västerås, Sweden, is based on PacketFront’s IP-DSLAM and Westell’s LiteLine modem, both products using ‘best in class performance’ ADSL2+ solutions developed by Broadcom Corporation. To fully demonstrate the capability of the solution, a recent field trial tested a combination of loop lengths, varying from 160 metres up to 7km, within the same cable binder. This cable binder was at 80% density during the field trial. Even though this is one of the toughest test scenarios with regards to cross talk interference, as much as 80% of the loops reached over 20 Mbit/s downstream and 100% reached over 7 Mbit/s.

Mälarenergi is today serving 30,000 households and 2,000 businesses in the region with triple-play services and is considered to be one of the most innovative utility companies in the business. The unprecedented performance of PacketFront’s ADSL2+ solution and Westell’s reliable and low-cost Liteline modems, will give Mälarenergi the opportunity to not only offer its more rural customers Internet access with very high bandwidth, but also the opportunity to launch multicast IP-TV and video on demand over ADSL.


The move can be seen as an initial attack on the UK market by Westell, which is no doubt hoping for a piece of the ADSL2+ hardware pie.
