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 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 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, is mainly applied to short-distance copper pairs to deliver Gigabit access.

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

In addition, it has incorporated 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 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 over Coax multi-user access prototype is a perfect combination of our latest technology and coaxial network innovations," he said.

"Huawei will promote standardization and commercialization to accelerate the build-out of ultrafast broadband networks. technology has become increasingly popular since the release of the world's first prototype by Huawei released the first generation of in December 2011.
