G.hn consistently delivers superior bandwidth over coaxial cable. G.hn dynamically adjusts the allocation of the bandwidth between the downstream and upstream direction to reflect the real-time traffic conditions for optimal and near-symmetrical performance under all conditions.
The Positron GAM delivers higher-speed and stable Gigabit Internet Services at a lower cost than DOCSIS. The GAM software extends its management capabilities to the G.hn end-point (aka G.hn to Ethernet Bridge) devices (such as the Positron G1000). The GAM hardware enforces per-subscriber bandwidth profiles and guarantees a fair and balanced use of the backhaul link at all times for value-added services such as IPTV, streaming and telephony. Its extensive support for VLAN (including Q-in-Q) complies with the Broadband Forum TR-101 specification allowing for seamless integration with the operator fiber services and the OSS and BSS functions already in place. The service OAM capabilities of the GAM provide real-time information to the operator about the overall grade of services without any additional cost or complexity.
G.hn is used by large Operators in multiple markets with a strong base in South East Asia where it provides Gigabit services into MDU / MTU of all sizes as well as for residential neighborhoods. These Operators leverage the robustness of G.hn and its predictable bandwidth to scale to large deployments that complement their investment in their Passive Optical Network (PON) infrastructure.
As is the case with other ITU DSL and PON standards, G.hn offers extensive management and troubleshooting features and capabilities to simplify its deployment, activation and support. These management capabilities cover all operational aspects, from dealing with wiring issues to service-aware QoS and bandwidth management. The G.hn ecosystem is very solid and includes verified interoperability between the three (3) main chipset vendors based on extensive testing by the University of New Hampshire (UNH) lab.
The Positron GAM is available in 24 and 12 port configurations for either coaxial cable or twisted pairs with support for Single Input Single Output (SISO) mode, (1 pair per port) and Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) mode (2 pairs per port). Using MIMO instead of DSL pair bonding means that there is no need to allocate two (2) ports to serve a single subscriber, lowering costs and avoiding the complexity of pair bonding.
