Positron’s Gigabit Access Solutions Provide a Cost-Effective Broadband Deployment Strategy

Positron has been a leading technology provider to the telecom industry for over 50 years, constantly developing new solutions to facilitate improvements in bandwidth and reliability while helping providers significantly reduce capital expenditure costs and time to revenues.


Retrofitting Brownfield (older) buildings is time consuming, involves construction disruption, the use of scarce manpower and is very costly.

Positron’s GAM enables Gigabit Access across entire buildings to deliver Gigabit services in hours to each subscriber with no construction disruption at less than 25% of the cost to deploy fiber wiring in the building.

Extend the Power of Fiber Optics

You can virtually extend fiber Gigabit services to each building unit or garden-style homes without having to pull new fiber to every subscriber. The GAM terminates a single fiber connection and extends Gigabit services over the existing wiring.

Benefits of the GAM

About G.hn Access Multiplexer (GAM) Technology

With GAM technology, providers can extend fiber Gigabit services to each occupant in older residential and commercial buildings over existing telephone or coax cabling reducing CAPEX, increasing ROI (4-5 months) and accelerating time to revenue (in hours).

GAM solutions are fully featured carrier-grade products for indoor and outdoor deployments serving MDUs of all sizes.

The GAM enforces per-subscriber bandwidth profiles and guarantees a fair and balanced use of the backhaul link, is non-blocking, scalable, has extensive QoS, low latency and VLAN support, with extensive troubleshooting capabilities.

Indoor Applications (12 & 24-Port models that are stackable)

  • Addresses the key in-building challenge of carriers to extend fiber services
  • Delivers managed virtually symmetrical Gigabit services to 820 feet (250 m)over existing telephone pairs inside older buildings to subscribers at a fraction of the cost of any alternative
  • Scalable, fastest time to revenue
  • Delivers managed Gigabit services to 2,625 feet (800 m) to subscribers over existing coaxial cable
  • Works with existing CATV splitters (up to 16 subscribers per port of the GAM), does not require amplifiers, and provides virtually symmetrical Gigabit services
  • Requires significantly lower capital expenditures and operating expenses than Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) standards
  • Scalable, fastest time to service

Outdoor Applications
