Customer Story

GAM Aeronet GAM-12-M

SYNOPSYS: AeroNet has been facing challenges in terms of connection rate & reach for their business customers utilizing VDSL2 technology. The loops are noisy and AeroNet is unable to support many modern applications such as Video, POS, Wi-Fi Hotspots, VPN and Cloud Backup. To satisfy these customers and win additional business, AeroNet has utilized the Positron 24 port G.hn Access Multiplexor (GAM-24-M) on copper twisted pair facilities to replace older VDSL2 products. Aeronet has implemented the GAM-24-M at a major shopping mall in Puerto Rico to cost effectively increase the bandwidth nearly tenfold and provide the modern services required in today’s business environment.

Initial Challenges

For these business applications utilizing VDSL2, the average copper distance was 100-300 meters utilizing CAT-3 Wiring (26 AWG / 0.4mm). Speeds were limited to 15 Mbps Downstream and 5 Mbps Upstream or less. These were also very noisy loops. Typical performance on a good loop should have been near 100 Mbps Downstream and 50 Mbps Upstream with VDSL2, but even that is no longer suf cient for modern business applications in many cases. Also, as mentioned in the synopsis above, AeroNet’s VDSL2 solution was unable to support many applications that demand solid upstream bandwidth.
