Huawei delivers 'last mile' copper speeds of 1Gbps

Huawei's prototype opens the door to ultrafast broadband via multi-medium copper

Huawei has unveiled a world first innovation that boosts internet speeds over copper or HFC to up to 1Gbps.

The prototype opens the door to ultrafast broadband via multiple access technologies.

The G.fast over HFC multi-user access prototype is capable of providing superfast speeds of 1Gbps over HFC nextworks or multi-medium copper.

The technology is compatible with cable TV signals on existing coaxial networks, which serve as a crucial access medium for home networks.

It works by flexibly allocating unoccupied frequency bands (1 GHz maximally) for G.fast access.

The technology provides a 1Gbps downstream shared bandwidth to serve up to 32 users over coaxial cables at superfast broadband speeds.

As a cutting-edge access technology, G.fast is mainly applied to short-distance copper pairs to deliver Gigabit access.

The Chinese company has been conducting G.fast over Copper trials with a leading European operator, providing 1Gbps access via existing copper lines.

In addition, it has incorporated G.fast technology into its Fiber to the Door (FTTD) solution, which takes fiber to the door and then delivers ultrafast broadband access via existing access media (such as copper lines or coaxial cables).

The G.fast technology is seen as a solution to problems with FTTH deployments in the ‘last mile’ into a user’s home.

Huawei president, access network product line, You Yiyong, said the company had continuously invested in technological innovations that addressed the needs of operators, and solved their problems in network rollouts.

"The G.fast over Coax multi-user access prototype is a perfect combination of our latest G.fast technology and coaxial network innovations," he said.

"Huawei will promote G.fast standardization and commercialization to accelerate the build-out of ultrafast broadband networks.

G.fast technology has become increasingly popular since the release of the world's first G.fast prototype by Huawei released the first generation of G.fast in December 2011.

In Pictures: Houston, we have a bug - 9 famous software glitches in space

There’s never a good time to run into software bugs, but some times are worse than others - like during a mission to space. Spacecraft of all shapes and sizes rely heavily on software to complete their objectives. But those missions can be quickly ended by the simplest of human errors when writing code. The omission of an overbar here or overflow error checking code there can mean the difference between success or failure, not to mention the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars, years of work and, on manned missions, human life. Use the arrows above to read about 9 examples that show that, despite the care with which these systems are built, bugs have occurred in spacecraft software since we started to fling rockets into space - and will, no doubt, continue to crop up.
