Qualcomm Samples G.fast Chipsets for Korea and Japan

Qualcomm has begun sampling new GigaDSL chipsets to help broadband operators to transition deployments from VDSL to Gigabit access technologies, especially in Korea and Japan.

The company said its new QCO5700 for multiple dwelling units (MDU) and the QCM5720 for customer premises equipment (CPE) can provide up to 1 Gbps broadband over existing telephone lines – while maintaining interoperability with carriers’ existing modems and seamless coexistence with deployed infrastructure.


“We are committed to driving leading edge technologies to meet carrier's unique requirements, including in Japan and Korea,” said Irvind Ghai, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. “With these new GigaDSL product offerings, we are able to meet carriers’ broadband goals, complementing fiber deployment in time for major events, such as the 2018 Winter Games in Korea and the 2020 Summer Games in Japan.”

Qualcomm said it already has design wins with Sumitomo Electronic, NEC and Wave Electronics.

“We are going to make every possible effort to replace our 1G-EPON FTTH products with 10G-EPON products in the FTTH market in Japan. The transition from VDSL to G.Fast (FDD) ‘GigaDSL’ is an important segment to realize this ‘10G upgrade’ for Telco carriers in order to complement the fiber deployment in MDU in Japan, and we are working closely with them and Qualcomm Technologies to deliver the solutions needed to make this a seamless transition,” said Hiroaki Nishimoto, general manager, broad networks division, Sumitomo Electric. “Sumitomo brings to bear our history of infrastructure expertise to make 10 Gigabit access technologies a reality.”
