The Positron G.hn Access Multiplexer (GAM) redefines how fiber broadband services are extended over the in-building telephone or coax wiring to deliver Gigabit experience to every door.
Novus leverages Positron’s GAM to deliver high speed over older wiring. Novus is providing gigabit-speed services over Positron’s platform, and they have multiple buildings and 100 units in the field today using that technology.
Pierre Trudeau, President & CTO of Positron Access, has been selected on the 2021 list of “Top 50 Broadband Influencers, Innovators and Disrupters who are Connecting the World."
As Published in Broadband Communities Magazine, March/April 2021. Main Street Connect is a new apartment complex in Montgomery County, Maryland, that offers symmetrical 50 Mbps internet services and digital training for low-income and special-needs residents via a partnership with the county government’s Department of Technology Services.
As Published in ISEMAG.com, March 2021. Gigabit services delivered exclusively over fiber often bypass MDUs and garden home clusters because of the construction disruption and the high cost of bringing fiber inside each housing unit.
As published in Broadband Communities: Positron’s BRX line amplifiers double the serving area on long copper loops where fiber is not cost effective. Years of development and thousands of units in operation at 200 carriers has resulted in a very robust reliable solution that has significant placement flexibility and operates on line current.
With the advent of “fiber along the road” to serve many homes in rural areas, it is now possible to extend Gigabit Services to each home without disruptive construction work, to bring fiber to the home, and the cost to extend fiber into the home.
While subscribers in many urban areas have access to 50-100 Mbps services or higher this is not the case in suburban and rural markets where subscribers cannot get higher speeds and are unable to access more advanced services and applications. Regulators are setting new targets for broadband access.
Positron’s G.hn technology provides managed non-blocking symmetrical Gigabit bandwidth services to subscribers over existing telephone wire or coaxial cable on extended distances, at a lower cost and with reduced complexity compared with G.fast.
As Published in Broadband Communities Magazine, October 2020. When providing services in older buildings, operators increasingly turn to G.hn instead of deploying fiber because a fiber-centric strategy requires a massive investment to pass every door and many subscriber sign-ups to achieve economies of scale.
