Lantiq and KEYMILE – World’s First Mass Deployment of VDSL System Level Vectoring
Major deployment by Lantiq and KEYMILE will surpass 1.5 million vectored lines in 2013
Germany – October 9, 2013 – Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, and KEYMILE, a leading supplier of cutting-edge technology for communications solutions in access and transmission systems, today announced volume shipments of system level vectoring equipped VDSL Linecards to a major Telecommunications Carrier.
A majority of these VDSL Linecards is already deployed in the field and vectoring based broadband services are expected to be offered to consumers by the end of 2013. The joint Lantiq/KEYMILE 192 channel vectoring solution is the world’s first field deployed system level vectoring solution implemented in a mature, cost and power efficient System-on-Chip (SoC) / ASSP approach – making Lantiq the leader in VDSL vectoring SoC’s to date.
System level VDSL vectoring is critically important for service providers to efficiently extend the broadband performance of the copper network in a very cost effective manner.
Bjeorn Claassen, CEO of KEYMILE: “Our joint vectoring solution is a great example of the ongoing strong and valuable collaboration between Lantiq and KEYMILE. Due to this close collaboration we were able to ship a market-ready and market leading vectoring product to our customers, only 1.5 years after official approval of the vectoring standard. We highly value Lantiq as a reliable and flexible partner. The Lantiq solution plays an essential role in our cutting-edge vectoring offering.”
Dan Artusi, CEO of Lantiq: “Lantiq has a large footprint in VDSL for central office and CPE and is rapidly gaining market share. VDSL, including vectoring and bonded lines, is worldwide becoming the key technology for superfast internet. By shipping the first field deployed System Level Vectoring solution for mass deployment, we reinforce our leading role in VDSL and enable millions of customers to get connected to ultra-fast Internet services.”
- Proven interoperable, full-scale system level vectoring on 192 channels, based on the Lantiq VINAX™ IVE1000 for central office equipment
- Operators can deliver best in class quality for triple-play broadband services, including multiple streams of HD-quality TV, Internet and voice.
- By effectively eliminating crosstalk on system level, service providers are able to more than double data rates and achieve 200 Mbps aggregate up- and downstream data rate.
