Broadband Forum Hosts G.fast Plugfest at UNH-IOL

The Broadband Forum hosted seven companies implementing chipsets based on the ITU-T’s new G.fast specifications at the first industry G.fast plug-fest, which was conducted at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL) on January 26-30.

The ITU-T’s G.9701 (G.fast) specification was approved this past December, designed to provide broadband connection speeds of up to 1Gbps over a single twisted pair cable, meeting the ever increasing demands of applications in the home and business around the world.

The plugfest marked the first time implementations of the ITU-T specification came together to test with one another, to ensure deployed products will be interoperable from “day one.” Broadcom, HiSilicon, Ikanos, Lantiq, Metanoia, Realtek, and Sckipio all participated in the event with their chipset platforms. Sparnex Instruments also participated in the event, providing a G.fast copper loop simulator.
