  • Leverages existing telephone wiring for copper wiring (UTP, CAT-3 or CAT-5/5e)

  • Avoids high capital cost of a fiber retrofit.

  • Delivers near symmetrical Gigabit Internet access to subscribers.

  • Used in conjunction with the Positron Outdoor GAM 4 or 8 MRX

  • Avoids complexity of DSL-related technologies.

  • Simplifies access network and backend infrastructure.

How it works

The G1001-MR to Ethernet Managed Demarcation Point devices power the Positron rugged IP67 (outdoor and extended temperature) GAM family with support for the ETSI Reverse Power Feed (RPF). Support for RPF facilitates the installation of the GAM outside of the MDU or MTU and in areas where it is not simple or cost effective to install a local power source. The GAM-8-MRX and GAM-4-MRX respectively have eight (8) and four (4) MIMO ports and can operate when powered from G1001-MR devices in SISO or MIMO mode.

The ITU-T G.9960 Wave-2 standard leverages the existing copper telephone wiring (UTP, CAT-3 or CAT-5/5e) as an access technology that delivers a Gigabit Internet service to each subscriber at a lower cost. This advantage avoids the delays that come with complex fiber installations for infrastructures.

Considered an access technology by Operators who need to simplify their backend infrastructure and access network with an Ethernet-like technology. This application is highly scalable without some of the inherent complexity of DSL-related technologies. Operators increasingly rely on to extend fiber or fixed wireless Gigabit services and avoid the high capital and operational expenses of a fiber retrofit. The Positron GAM solution is MEF CE 2.0 compliant and is ideally suited to deliver Business Ethernet services in an MDU and/or MTU deployment.

About the G1001 Managed Demarcation Point with RPF Support

When operating in a Reverse Power Feed mode, the outdoor GAM devices will always make sure that each End-Point devices it serves evenly contribute to provide power to the GAM via RPF. This means that the outdoor GAM will reject End-Point devices that do not provide their share of the power required by the GAM.

    Resources and CATV Coexistence – MDU Gigabit Speeds Without Compromise

    For carriers seeking to expedite their broadband deployment in underserved areas, the prospect of an in-building fiber installation for high-speed broadband is a daunting challenge. Fortunately, Positron’s Access Multiplexer (GAM) technology makes it possible to leverage a non-blocking CE 2.0 Carrier Ethernet Core to reliably deliver managed Gigabit services over existing infrastructure.

    Extending Gigabit Fiber services to Every Door without installing fiber to the door

    Positron’s 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.
