GiaX is making it possible for broadband service providers to re-use in-building coaxial networks when deploying fibre-to-the-curb.
The coaxial network specialist says its new Iris portfolio can provide significant OPEX and CAPEX savings in the delivery of symmetrical services well beyond 1 Gbps.
The Iris portfolio consists of both network controllers and modems.
Iris operates in the 400 MHz to 900 MHz and 1175 MHz to 1675 MHz ranges so it will not interfere with legacy services such as DOCSIS and TV (Satellite, Digital or Analogue). Iris network controllers have full featured L3 switching capability enabling MEF OAM, enhanced VPN, QoS and QoE. Iris network controllers are an extension of the service provider network.
“Iris provides operators with a cost-effective means to provide symmetrical speeds in excess of one gig while using the in-building coax network for fibre to the curb or fibre to the MDU environments, dramatically reducing Capex and Opex”, said Jörg Hellwig, CEO and founder of GiaX.
Iris is based on the MoCA Access 2.5 standard and allows the existing coaxial network to be used for high bandwidth symmetrical services.
