High speed broadband access is now more than ever a fundamental need for remote learning and tele-working, video streaming, entertainment and video conferencing especially with multiple users in the same household.
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.
Positron’s G.hn Access Multiplexer (GAM) can extend your fiber services to every door of an MDU/MTU over the existing telephone pairs or coaxial cable to deliver Gigabit broadband. The Positron GAM delivers symmetrical Gigabit broadband without the need to install fiber to every door.
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.
