Ikanos Demos VDSL at 300 Mbps over 200m

Ikanos Communications has achieved an aggregate throughput of 300Mbps over a standard single-pair copper cable up to a distance of 200 meters (short-loop) using its existing VDSL chipsets.


Ikanos described the short-loop demonstration as a significant step towards G.Fast.

The demonstration follows recent, multiple top-tier OEM and carrier lab trials in which the company’s Velocity-3 central-office (CO) chipset was been given high marks for achieving 150Mbps aggregate throughput (110Mbps downstream and 40Mbps upstream) at a distance of 500 meters in a 192-port reference DSLAM system.

“Ikanos has a history of challenging the industry by pushing the performance envelope and continuing to raise the bar on our competition,” said Kourosh Amiri, vice president of marketing at Ikanos. “With Velocity-3, in a matter of a few months, we have received widespread recognition of our industry leadership in performance and scalability for high-port-count deployments of 192 lines (scalable up to 384), at distances reaching 500 meters and beyond.  While the G.Fast promise of gigabit performance is still on the horizon, our ability to demonstrate hundreds of megabits for lower-port-count short-loop configurations using our currently shipping CPE and CO silicon establishes Ikanos as the leader in the ‘pre-G.Fast’ era, as we enable telcos to remain competitive against mounting pressure from MSOs and continue to enhance the consumer DSL broadband experience.”
