Broadband World Forum: KEYMILE shows solutions for future-proof access networks

by david.nunes

Hanover, October 7, 2010 – The Broadband World Forum will take place from 26 to 28 October 2010 in Paris. With a live FTTH showcase at the event, KEYMILE will present solutions for future-proof expansion of telecommunications networks based on its access platform MileGate.

KEYMILE is one of the leading manufacturers of Next-Generation data transmission systems. On stand L2 at the Broadband World Forum in Paris (CNIT La Defense), it will feature a live display of its access platform MileGate which has been enhanced for FTTH applications.

MileGate has an optical Ethernet card which connects up to 1,920 subscribers via Gigabit Ethernet from a single 19-inch rack. Via the same optical fibre, network operators can also feed in analogue or digital cable TV signals simultaneously with IP data traffic. As a result, network operators will be able, conveniently and cost efficiently, to supply customers with a range of TV programmes without having to set up complex and costly IPTV infrastructure. This configuration is also attractive for cable network operators because they can provide cable television, Internet access and VoIP over one single optical fibre. For connecting up multi-tenant buildings, MileGate 2011 is a Micro DSLAM, optimised for FTTB applications.

With a MileGate 2011, up to eight subscribers can be supplied via the existing in-house telephone wiring via VDSL2 at up to 100 Mbps.

MileGate has a variety of electrical (xDSL, telephony) and optical user interfaces. It can operate in a extended range of temperature and can therefore provide faster and more reliable xDSL services from street cabinets or the central office. It adds up to an evolutionary development of networks. With this level of flexibility, in addition to installations in exchanges with thousands of subscriber lines, MileGate also supports all FTTx network architectures (Fibre-to-the X).

With its hybrid system architecture, the Ethernet/IP-based access and transmission platform MileGate supports simultaneous provision of traditional and IP services from one single network element. This allows network operators to continue to offer traditional telephony and broadband services and migrate to the NGN (Next-Generation Network) at the same time.

On 26 October, Dr. Wolfgang Spahn, Chief Technical Officer at KEYMILE, will hold a presentation entitled “The Broadband Future – how will it develop and who will pay for it?”. After the presentation, Wolfgang Spahn will hold a discussion with his guests who are to include Deutsche Telekom, EWE TEL, Virgin Media, Telecolumbus and Eircom. The topic will be “Access Technologies: DSL, Fibre & DOCSIS”.
